Halloween surprise ball

Hello! You probably already know that I have a passion for my surprise balls. They were almost christmasy themed but this yearI thought that it would be nice to make something for halloween and there it is: my very first Halloween Surprise Ball:

 At Cnavas Corp have some very intresting papers for Halloween. In my case I used the Haun it paper and used various elements: the Hocus Pocus on the outside of the ball, The witchy tag in the inside, the little cat beside the bottles and the little spider and the batts that I used for the bottles etiquetes.
Inside I covered one part of the ball with Black Canvas Corp paper and the other one with the Black and Ivory Zig Zag reverse paper. I used it also to create the stars on the otside with the Sizzix Bigz Die - Stacked Stars.
 I used an old belt for covering the edge of the ball and paint it with the Tattered Angels High Imapct Black Paint. I also used the paint to make the black drops inside. They stay glossy even after drying and the effect is great.

 The embellishments are from 7Gypsies: The tiny apothecary bottles are painted with the Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze (Java). The stars are completed with the 7Gypsies Dome Studs and the key and the Vintage pin are from the same brand. The greeny center inside the ball is covered with different sizes of green burlap from Canvas Corp.On the top of tha ball I created a spider web using a thin wire.
I would say this project requires a bit more effort but I love it. Just try to make one and have a witchy halloween!

Halloween witchy mashroom

Hello everyone. Here is my latest idea I wanted to share with you. I was thinking about making something new this year and here is my Halloween witchy mashrom.

 The idea is so easy. For the stalk I used a soda bottle that I painted in white and distressed. For the hat I used the Canvas Corp Halloween papers. They have some brand new papers for halloween and they are really beatiful. I used The Halloween Stripe on White for the hat and I used a part of the Haunt it for the circle on the side of the hat.
 The mashroom hat is not flat so in between the two paper circle I placed a rounded piece of cardboard and some newspaper to get the puffy look. On the top I glued the cone filled with the smashed newspaper in the way that it's more resistant.

I love the scales on the mushrooms and I used  the Canvas Corp tacks and the 7gypsies dome studs for making them. They really make the difference, without them there is just another thing.

So, this is a very simple idea that you can make and I hope there will be a lot of witchy mashrooms growing out there!!!!
