Crafty Secrets - A Merry Halloween Wall Hanging - Crafty Power Blog Post

Hello! I can't believe Halloween is only a few days away! I am *crossing my fingers* and hoping the weather will be nice. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I have been busy creating last minute gift ideas and cards. Yesterday, I had a blog post on the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L Blog--The Crafty Power Blog. I have a tutorial showing you how to create this cute Halloween Candy Gift Box using two of my favorite adhesives, the NEW MyStik™ Permanent Dispenser and 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™. Click HERE for all the details! For today I create a fun little Halloween wall hanging using Halloween Vintage Postcard Kit and Halloween Greetings Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets. I also used S4-279 Graveyard Scenes and Shapes, S4-280 Halloween Fence Scene and Shapes, S4-277 Nested Bats die templates from Spellbinders™.I started by painting the wood sign with black acrylic paint and then added Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glam and heat set to dry.Next I made two diecuts using S4-279 Graveyard Scenes and Shapes and S4-280 Halloween Fence Scene and Shapes. Then I applies ink to make the embossed areas pop.To create the little bats I used the three smallest die templates from the S4-277 Nested Bats. I used Black 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to add a little dimension.I used this adorable image from the Halloween Vintage Postcard Kit. I sanded and inked the edges and then added some sparkle with Stickles. Then I added the bats and tiny red rhinestones for their eyes and I added a red rhinestone swirl on the side. For the grass in the graveyard I used Ultra Fine Sage Flower Soft. This works perfect for grass/moss and adds a fun texture to your project.Here is a close up of the haunted house. I added Orange Peel Stickles to give the windows a glowing effect.Here is a close up of the other side. The wild looking tree reminds me of the trees in The Wizard of OZ! Love the little bat eyes! *wink*The BINGO card and tickets are from Halloween Greetings Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets.
