October is here at last!! The fall season is always my favorite time of the year. It's almost a forgotten season, so short lived. Sometimes with the early onset of snow, or this year it's been soo hot and dry. But it is here, and with it brings this month's MPTS challenge!
I was super excited about this month's challenge. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I can honestly say I have way more Halloween decorations than Christmas. So I couldn't wait to try my hand at making my own awesome Halloween decor!
The theme this month was:
"We don't want to be fairy and bright, we want to be scary and give them a fright"!
NO ORANGE or Yellow!!!
These two colors CANNOT be used on your project!!!
Supplies: Glitter and ribbon
Embellishment: Hand made flower
sealed it. Had even already coated it with glitter, but never finished it. Once I saw the theme for this month, I knew it was the perfect project. I had also really been wanting to decorate fascinator hats. Something about them is just so cute!!
Plus I love the Gothic feel of them, with a twist of steam punk, So me!! The hat was purchased at a craft store, it is actually for a doll. I then added a black fabric flower ribbon by Websters Pages. I created the rosette out of Dictionary paper, once glued together I cut it in half. The look of it seemed to bright, so I pulled a little toile over top, giving it the perfect feel. The button was found at Jo Ann's on clearance!! And the handmade flower is one of my specialty flowers from my Etsy shop, just in a miniature version. A huge burgundy feather accents the back of the hat, and for embossing I decided to emboss the number 31 in silver!! All in all i loved this challenge!! So fun to think out of the box! Make sure you stop by MPTS to see what wonderful creations all the other members made this month!!
