Hi everyone! This is Kelly from kbiendesigns. Today I have a Halloween wall or door hanging, which is a quick and easy way to decorate for the holiday!
I started with the new Happy Haunting paper Graphic 45. I started with an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of black cardstock. I then cut down the striped paper from Happy Haunting to 8 x 10 1/2. I used foam tape (a lot of it) to adhere it to the black paper. I did this for two reasons - one for dimension and the other for stability. I then added a layer of plain orange cardstock cut down to 7 1/2 x 10, then a layer of bat paper cut down to 7 x 9 1/2. Each layer was adhered with foam tape in different directions, again for stability.
At this point, I knew I wanted to use doilies, but I haven't had success inking the white doilies. I never seemed to get the right color. Then it dawned on me - cut out your own! So I went searching and found the perfect cut from Paper Lace.
I cut the doilies out at 4.5", one in black and one in orange.
I then trimmed two other patterned papers from the stack to layer horizontally, to anchor the doilies.
I grabbed my Teresa Collins Chic and Scary and cut out "BEWARE" at 4.5" from black cardstock, and layered that with foam dots.
I then cut out the adorable little witch on a pumpkin from Happy Haunting and, you guessed it, layered that on with more foam tape! Glued down a few buttons with baker's twine and I was done!
I will be hanging this on my door on Halloween night with the adorable Melissa Frances hanger!
Thanks for looking and have a great Halloween!
