Hello and welcome to my stop on DCWV's Too Cute to Spook Halloween hop! If you've just happened upon the hop and would like to join us from the start, you can begin at the DCWV blog here. If you've been hopping and you just arrived from the lovely Thomisia's blog, you're in the right place :).
This altered pumpkin started as a sad-looking, scary-bright foam pumpkin from the dollar store. I saw its potential, though, and knew some DCWV love would make it the perfect addition to my Halloween decor.
I started by decoupaging newsprint paper from the Vintage Essentials stack to the pumpkin. Because the pumpkin is round and there are grooves, the paper doesn't easily lay flat. But, I love that look for something on the creepy side. Once that was dry, I painted the stem black.
Next, I cut pennants from the Eek-a-Boo 6x6 stack. I used Halloween stickers by SRM Stickers to make a few more pennants, then I glued them to an orange string. I display pumpkins in my house all autumn long, so this banner is lightly tacked to the pumpkin and can be removed after Halloween.
By now you know that DCWV is giving away three stacks to lucky blog hoppers who leave comments along the way. I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway of my own, too! How would you like some spooky stamps to help you create your own fantastic Halloween projects? And some Halloween stickers by SRM to sweeten the prize?
Just leave a comment and I will draw a name on Tuesday, October 21st. DCWV will post its winners on Tuesday, as well, but be sure to finish hopping by Monday morning, 8 am EST. I'll announce my winner here on the blog and on Facebook. Please check back and/or follow on Facebook so you don't miss out. I'm too busy scrapping to hunt down winners ;).
Enjoy the rest of the hop! Now on to the fabulous Britt's blog. Thanks for stopping by! Tessa
In case you get lost...
