Frightful Door Hanger

Halloween decorating time is upon us and I have
this cute door hanger up on the 
PETALOO BLOG

 For the base, I used the Pumpkin Album Die by Top Dog Dies and covered them 
in paper from Authentique.www.authentiquepaper.co  I used a scroll shaped die for the center and it also acted as a way to attach the two pumpkins together.

 I added two oval shapes to dress up the sides of the ghost die-cut.  
The outer edges of the ovals were trimmed with burlap twine that I dipped in
 Amethyst Color Shine Spray by Heidi Swapp.  I used a paper towel to soak
 up the excess spray and allowed it to dry before gluing into place.


For the flowers, I took three of the Wild Sunflowers and dipped them into 
Black Velvet Color Shine Spray.  Again, I used a paper towel to soak up the excess
 and then used a heat gun tool to finish drying the sunflowers.

To the center of the sunflowers, I added one of the Beaded Acorn Pick pieces...
it added just the right amount of color!  I also used the leaves from the same 
picks around the center flower.

 Again, all of the papers and die-cuts (except for the ghost, which was from my
 stash of decorations) are from Authentique's Spirited Collection.  I punched two
 holes at the top and strung through wire for the hanger.
  All ready for hanging out on my front door!

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
