Halloween Cutie!!

Happy Hump Day, hope you've been having a smooth week so far!!  Mine has been busy but it's going pretty smooth.  Today I have a really cute Halloween project to share with you :D  

This pretty little lady's head is actually a paper mache treat box that I picked up at Michaels.  It comes in a four pack so I have a few more to share with you tomorrow.

I used a Recollections stamp set for all of the flowers then just colored them in with fun bright colored paints.

Here is a peak of the back side.  I used a wooden dowel and a scrap piece of cedar for my base.  I sprayed both pieces black, then added the white stripes.  I used wood glue to secure the dowel to the base.  

To dress up the base, I used a Spellbinders rose and some recollections flowers.

I dyed my lace with Dylusions Ink in Bubble Gum to get that beautiful shade of pink.  The little chalkboard frame is by Recollections and I used a white gel pen to write in my sentiment.

This was a really fun project but painting the skull was A LOT of work.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see all of her little friends ;D

Have a Beautiful & Creative Day!!!
