Crafty Secrets DT Challenge, Tutorial and Linky Party

September 2, 2013


 Today, I am joining the Crafty Secrets Design Team Challenge.  Each month we join together to share our artwork, won't you join us?  You can find the information on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog.  This month I will be sharing a easy and fun Halloween project.



Materials Needed:
Burlap Circle
Crepe Paper
Glitter
Fabric Leaves
Jewelry Paper Cord and Beads
Muslin or Canvas Strip
Scallop Circle Punch
Hot Glue and Liquid Glue


Use a scallop circle punch and cut out the desired image.
Gather and glue the crepe paper to the back of the image.
Add glue and glitter to the edge of the image.


Glue the image to the burlap.  
Cut the desired length of the jewelry paper cord and string beads, knotting the ends to hold in place.  
Then tie a bow and glue into place.
Tie a muslin or canvas strip around bottle and then glue leaves and then glue image piece to fabric.


The great thing about this decoration is that once Halloween is over, untie it from the bottle and reuse the bottle again.  Won't it be fun to use the same bottle but create different image medallions for each season?

Head on over to the Crafty Secrets Blog where you can link up and post a project you completed using Crafty Secrets products.

I love this, and I love the idea that you can take it off, pack it away for next year and use the bottle for something else in the mean time. My kind of decorating. Super Cute!

This is super cute altered bottle. I have a number of bottles on my kitchen counter..you know the usual balsamic vinegar, olive oil etc and you have inspired me to make Halloween tags to seasonalize them. Great idea.

Sheila your Halloween bottle is cute and I love the idea you can easily remove it or hang it on anything from some big candles, on a door knob, a treat bag, etc!
