Halloween is coming...

With Halloween fast approaching I thought it would be fun to use up some of my Urban Lily papers and make a fun decoration for the house. I don't know about you but we love Halloween on Vancouver Island. The kids get dressed up and go door to door for Trick or Treating. Our community also has a huge bon fire with fireworks after the trick or treating is done. There are parties everywhere and different events. We have pumpkin patches all throughout the island that you go and pick your own pumpkins. Halloween is big!
So in honour of the big day I made a fun witches hat.
There are tons of tutorial online on how to make them but I just rolled up a piece of Urban Lily Happy Everything- Always. I stapled it to secure it, then used adhesive to make sure it wasn't going anywhere.
The best part of the hat was adding fun details. I punched out some ribbed circles from the Urban Lily orange ATC cards. I also used some orange trim I had on hand. I added some black ribbons and a little fly button embellie.
I love checking out different blogs to get ideas like these. There are all sorts of fun witches hats just like mine with different finishing touches.

Thanks for joining me and have a Happy Halloween.
