Ok so wanna see my project lol! I am so super excited about this project! It was one of those things you see in your head and when you finish it, it is exactly how you envisioned it! That doesn't happen to me often so I was thrilled! Today I made this super adorable Halloween Wall Hanging! I think I may end up putting it on my front door because I love it so much lol!
Here are some close ups of each plaque. Love all those cute faces!
 This was so fun to make! MY hubby cut the wood for me and drilled the holes and I did the rest, Great Team work lol! It was so easy to twist this wire too.

Materials used:
  • 3 Girl Jam Crinkle Ribbon in Witches Brew
  • DCWV Fall paper stack (best Halloween paper ever)
  • Crafty Sprouts "Totally Witchin" and "Monster Kisses" stamp sets 
  • Peachy Keen die Herby ( isn't he too freaking adorable!)
  • Wood cut at 4x6
  • Mod podge
  • 3d Crystal lacquer
  • Gelly roll pen in black
  • Jewelry wire
  • wire cutters
It seems like it was super hard to make but it really wasn't! It only took me an hour to put it all together! I think I need more of these lol!

So don't forget I will be giving away 2 no no make it 4 bundles of this awesome ribbon to one lucky hopper in what ever colors you choose!! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post! I would also LOVE it if you were a follower but that is totally not necessary!!

Ok are you ready to get your hop on? The next awesome blogger in the hop is Diana from DL. Art.I hope you enjoyed my project today, thanks for stopping by!
