Hi Roadies and welcome to the Maya Road and Xyron blog swap week! I hope you'll join us for a fun filled week of projects and inspiration. Okay, so I have one last Halloween project for you. This project can be used as a door sign, in the center of a wreath or on an easel, which is how I will be using it.
As I work with lots of different types of materials, I love to try out different adhesives to see how they work. I used 3 of the Xyron adhesives on this project. The Permanent Adhesive Glue Stick to apply the paper to my chipboard pieces, paper mache cone and wood spools. The Double Sided High Tack Tape for my trims and the High Tack Adhesive Dots were great for the pom poms and adding dimension to the chipboard star.
For this project, I knew I wanted to make a sign of some sort, so I decided to use the Mixed Half Circle Chipboard Banner Album as a starting point. To make the sign thicker I used the Xyron Glue Stick to layer 4 of the album pages together. After covering the pages with patterned paper, the glittered chipboard letters were added.
A basic doll head was made using some fabric, then features were added. To attach the head to the sign, a dowel was drilled into the center of the half circle pages, glued in place then the head was glued onto the other end.
A small paper mache cone was used to make the hat. Above you can see the pom poms made from Twine Cording and the Sparkle trim around the base of the hat.
A Satin Scallop Edge Bloom and some Tu-Tu Tulle were used around the neck of my monster and his arms were made out of some spools. The gloves were painted then glittered before some more Tu-Tu Tulle was added.
