The theme this month at Inspiration Emporium is "Spooktacular" and they are looking for Halloween home decor. Why have I only just found this LOL I am entering this little bit and who knows perhaps I still have time for another project! There are some fun and amazing entries, do have a look!
I started by spraying a 4" peat pot with Dylusions Black Marble and cutting oasis (floral foam) to fit snugly inside. Used a chenille stem to create a handle. I ruffled black crepe paper to create a flounce around the top, adhered some pumpkin ribbon around the middle of the flounce and edged the crepe with Platinum (my fav) Stickles. The lace and button flower I had in my stash, it was backed with a black crepe paper rosette, I made a larger purple crepe paper rosette to set behind that. I used Platinum and Purple Stickles for highlights here. The gold Dresden Halloween word I got from Paper Valise. I "fluffed and fooled" with some orange dyed cheesecloth and adhered that with dst to the oasis. Fussy cut my image, Deviant Scrap, adhered that to a small craft stick which I stuck through the cheesecloth into the oasis. A bit of purple seam binding for a simple bow and that's it!
Inspired by Nancy Maxwell James' "Peat Pot Pretties". I plan on doing variations for all of the holidays!
