Now, Hazel has been patiently waiting for me to start my fall/halloween 2013 decorating. And since fall is my favorite season (even though we don't experience much of it in south Georgia), I decided that late August is a perfect time to start pulling out the pumpkins (and witches, in Hazel's case).
Here's what I came up with:
This is already sitting on the table in my foyer. The pumpkin candles and soaps that have been in rotation for two weeks already (Bath & Body Works is my friend). Now, if only the weather would cooperate (90+ degree days are so last season!).
But back to Hazel...this is what I started with:
I chose a neutral paper and cut it down to fit the 5x7 opening in my Target (clearance!) frame. I then lined the paper up with the grid on my desk and used a ruler to keep the letters straight:
After adhering the letters, they were getting a bit lost in the paper, so I outlined them in black:
Next up was Hazel. I chose this oversized chipboard piece and attached it directly to the frame. I then added a couple jack-o-lanterns with pop dots (they were stickers, but I wanted them to have the extra dimension):
Because I'm crazy indecisive, I don't have pictures of the next step, but basically I spent 15 minutes moving around a couple stickers and pieces of chipboard until I was happy with the arrangement. To add a bit more dimension, I added some Liquid Glass to the "31", owl's eyes, and jack-o-lanterns:
And, once again, here is the completed project:
