Please give a big welcome to our October Special Guest Designer - Cindy Royal.
Cindy was a former Circle Blog DT member and also taught classes at some of the Cricut Events. We have missed seeing her work and so pleased to have her on Cricut FANatics Blog today.
Hello Cricut Fans. Cindy here to share a really quick Halloween Wreath for your door. There’s so many great Halloween cartridges to work with, but my all time favorite spider web is from the Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridge.
I cut my Spider Web and then, because I wanted it to be wreath-like, I cut the center out. I actually cut three webs and adhered them together to give it a little more stability, offsetting the top most one just a little for more depth. Of course, you could cut one from chipboard for the same effect, but I’m not a big fan of cutting chipboard. Once I glued the webs together, I sprayed them with a gold glimmer mist spray. I usually quickly wipe off excess spray, but this time I let it stay, wanting the usually despised warping of my paper to give it a little more character. Once it was dried, I adhered gems to it along the inside and outer spokes.
Spiders! This is my favorite spider, from the October 31st cartridge. I cut several and then applied brown flocking to the heads and bodies. All there’s left to do is glue them to the web. I used Helmar Liquid Scrap dots to allow them a little lift.
I found this grey webbing at Dollar Tree and decided to drape it behind my web.
This is just a starting point. You can use your favorite web and your favorite spiders. You can put anything you want on your wreath and you don’t really have to cut out the center, it’ll still be a nice door piece or wall hanging. Try it in other colors... oranges, purples, black.
