Can you tell that I am GEARING up for the upcoming season??? Okay, I have to be honest with you, I actually did these display items in AUGUST and had them on display in my home since then! I couldn't resist!!! Can you blame me??
This first adorable creation was a complete case from Shelli Gardner (yes, THE Shelli!) She presented this little gem at a Regional event this fall and shared the creation on her blog! The SECOND I saw it I made 3 (and since then I've made more:) They make me so happy!!! It really is quite simple....the Petal Cone Die for the body and the Pennant Big Shot die for the wings. FUN and sweet!!!
After making the three bats thought I needed to display them. So I hung them on my little IKEA black tree to realize it looked bare! So, then the banner came to life. I used the little pennant punch (which I LOVE!) and strung a bunch of them together and dangled it from the tree. BUT it was still missing something.
So then I thought of my friend Heidi (a fellow Artisan winner) and her adorable swap she made us. So I decided to use her fun idea and tweak it to make it my own and decorate the banner with a .... badge ... what would you call it!?!? I like ribbony circle thing, but I'm sure there is something more appropriate out there for it:)
As you can see in the middle photo, I have my test tubes and pumpkins on display from last year. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my bird cage my father-in-law gave me for Christmas last year. The raven and the Halloween berry stringy thing (again another creative word) is just perfect for the Halloween display.
Well, this is just the beginning of what I know will be a great season! I hope you like the creations and I'll be back tomorrow with a fun creation from Nathan (he is excited to share with you!) Have a great day!!!
