Now, let me give you a wee breakdown on this project!
The frame is a 5×7 black frame that I got at local big box store – nothing too fancy. But it is what’s inside that counts! Inside, is a piece of Newsprint Designer Series paper. On it, I embossed the Spider Web using the embossing folder and I then sponged the web with Basic Black ink.
I added some Raven 1/2″ lace to the top right and then around the bottom of the frame. In the centre of the glass I added a spider from the Spooky Things Decor Elements and then a decorative label in Basic Black to which I added some black chunky glitter around the outside. I then added a Very Vanilla large oval which was stamped with the word “spooky” from Wicked Cool.
For the little candy pot I used an empty lemonade tin that I had laying around. I covered it with Newsprint Designer Paper and then topped and bottomed it with the Raven 1/2″ lace.
In the centre, I added the bat from Spooky Things Decor Elements. I actually cut this one down the centre to extend the wing span a little bit more. In the centre I added a 2 3/8″ Basic Black scallop and in the centre a 1 3/4″ Very Vanilla circle which I stamped with images from Wicked Cool. I also added a silver Glimmer Brad to the bottom of this piece and a wee fan of cardstock at the bottom.
For the lid, I actually took the lid piece directly off and made a new one. I took two strips of 1″ x 12″ designer paper and folded them every 1/2″. I then adhered a larger circle of Very Vanilla on which I’d added another decor element and again an outline of chunky black glitter.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these projects – I had so much fun making them!
