Hi Roadies! Katrina from Paper, Scissors and Glue to share a little Halloween door hanger that is quick to make with some Maya Road goodies.
I picked up the kettle at a local craft store. It was already black, so it was quick to get started on. I replaced the sheer ribbon they had with some the Paper Twine cording in the Cloud color. The white was too stark, so I just took some black watercolor paint and changed it to black. I hit it with a heat gun to dry it quickly, so that I could move on to decorating.
Starting at the top, I created the "boiling potion" by adding various strips of ribbon. First, attach the Satin Scallop Edge Trim-Cream at the top of the kettle at the back. Attach Crochet Twill Trim-Green on the front of the kettle, adhering slightly lower than the Scallop Edge trim. Attach Tutu Tulle-Sunrise Orange to the front, overlapping the Crochet Twill trim. Make spider out of Mixed Blossom Mini chipboard. Cover with glue, add gold glitter and then eyes. Attach at top of pot.
I used a piece from the Canvas Pendant Banner Album, but you could use any canvas pieces that you have laying around, to cut a ghost shape out of. I painted white, outlined with a black marker and attached some enamel dots for eyes. Adhere to the back of your pot, letting him peek out over the potion.
Cluster some embellishments, tags and goodies in the corner. Paint wood veneer bird with black paint. Use a Mini Triangle Canvas Banner piece to create a witch hat. Color banner piece black and let dry. Cut an oval out of black paper slightly larger than the base of triangle. Cut a slot in the middle of the oval and slip banner piece in slot. Run Twine Cording in Blackberry around hat and adhere in the back. Make a bow and attach to front. Add a Bingo Motif button or two if you like! I also added some of the Satin Scalloped Edge Trim in Midnight as a cute little ruffle border. This is where you PLAY and have fun!
Create your title by altering some chipboard letters. I had a hard time deciding between the Lisa Chipboard alphabet sets I had. I decided on the uppercase one, but I was tempted to use the lower case! After covering with pattern paper, I sanded the edges down. I like the way the white made the letters stand out, so I did not ink my edges. I actually sanded a little more than I normally do, to make the white more prominent! Mount your letters on a Kraft Decorative Journaling Tag. Add a Wise Owl Resin Charm in White, because well...it's cute, it's for Halloween and he's really cute!
And there you have a cute door hanger for your house, teacher's room or office. Yes, this is going to my office to hang! Get to crafting, you know you love fall crafts!
