Tricks and Treats

I am loving the holiday theme on the MOSD blog this month! I created this Halloween wall hanging using the largest and the smallest pages from the Clearly Designed Steps acrylic book. I secured the two pages together with ribbon scraps, which I tied through the existing holes.

For the top section, the smallest acrylic page was altered with crackle paint and brown Staz On ink. I stamped the spider web using black Staz On ink, adhered vintage paper to the back, and added the spooky house cut out and sparkly bat.

On the bottom section, I layered patterned paper to the underside of the acrylic page and added glittered stickers on the front.

The focus of the hanging is the Trick or Treat spinner. I created this using a spinner template from MOSD, which I covered in patterned paper and added embellishments and a Tim Holtz game spinner to the center.

Dangling from the bottom of the entire hanging is a rosette that I made with a vintage-style cat ornament (purchased from ebay), a couple of black and orange buttons, and a black flower. I just couldn't stop embellishing! Overall, the entire hanging is about 2 feet in length.

Thanks for looking! I hope you can scare up some fun projects for your Halloween treats this year.
