Spooky Halloween Wall Hanging Home Decor

Standard

Well hello there Paper Peeps!  I’ve been working on some handcrafted flowers this week and if I do say so myself….they turned out kinda fabby!  I used a few on this Halloween wall hanging….which is also fabby! Spooky Halloween Wall Hanging

spooky_halloween_wall_hanging_holiday_decor_pollys_paper_studio-01

For the base I started with a Graphic 45 Policy envelope and stuffed it with 110 lb cardstock so it would be extra sturdy then layered on the fun vintage images and paper patterns.

It can hang on the generous loop of coordinating polka dot ribbon finished off with a double layer of poofy bow.

Large rose and small gardenias are colored in orange and accented with Stickles. I’ve added black leaves and smaller black flowers to fill in along with some sparkly flower pics.

Such a serious looking raven. You’d think wearing a poofy neck ruffle and hat would cheer him up lol.

Some flourishes cut from back cardstock layered over the checkerboard pattern and spiderweb…..all on spacers for added depth. Spooky Halloween Wall Hanging

Halloween Shaker Party Wands with Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a great Halloween décor-party favor that’s chock full of holiday fun.

These party wands were a lot of fun to create. I’m using the Ornament Double Sided and bits and pieces from the Spooky Shapes Set.

I selected the chippies I wanted to use being careful to choose smaller shapes that will mover freely when the wand is moved.

The fronts of the ornaments and a few of the shaker pieces were given a coat of black embossing powder and heat set.

The remaining bits were finished with silver heat embossing.

Using a black permanent marker on the inside and outside edges will give a nice clean finished look.

Polka dot patterned paper secured to the back side of the bottom ornament shape.  This is a good pattern that will not get lost behind the shaker parts.

I’ve included some pop beads in black and silver with the shaker bits and sandwiched it all between the clear bubble and the polka dot paper.

Layered crepe ruffled and secured with tacky glue to a black cardstock circle forms a great festive background and adding the straw slightly flattened at the top will be nice and snug between the background and ornament.

These party wands are finished off with some Stickles, loads of ribbon and twine and topped off with a blingy cabochon.

Cute by themselves…..but how about add them to a holiday centerpiece?

Wouldn’t these make the most funnest party favor? I want to have a party just so I can hand out these fabby goodies!!!

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative. : ) G

Halloween Shrine Box

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a Halloween project that takes me from the sublime from last week into the ridiculous.  I’ve got a skeleton hanging from a chandelier like you would find at any great Halloween party. halloween_shrine_box_pollys_paper_studio_ginny_nemchak_01

I used pieces from several sets of fabulous chippies to create this fun and whimsical box.

The box is covered with funky Halloween patterned papers to create a backdrop for the altered chipboard.

Spider Webs with steel luxe paint create a base to add seasonal embellishments to.

The focal point for this arrangement is additional webs and Star Flourishes with fall colored leaves, black roses and sparkly picks.

Inside the box is a great embossed chandelier with a party animal skeleton.

Things with Wings Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Standard

Hey there Peeps. We’re starting another fun challenge at RRR and the theme this time is Things With Wings. I created a As The Crow Flies Halloween Home Décor wall hanging with a nice selection of RRR trims and ribbons and an image from the Nevermore Halloween Collage Sheet.

Halloween Blues Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and  I’m excited to share a fun halloweeny project today with vintage images, layered patterned papers, and gorgeous Petaloo flowers.  I used non-traditional colors for the holiday inspired by the background color from the image.  Because why be normal? Halloween_Blues_Holiday_Greeting_Card_Petaloo_Polly's_Paper_Studio_Ginny_Nemchak_01

That little boy is sweet and charming I could not resist creating a project with him. The tag in the background was inked and stamped and embossed with more traditional Halloween colors. Not too much of it is peeking out so as not to distract from the focal image.

Halloween_Blues_Holiday_Greeting_Card_Petaloo_Polly's_Paper_Studio_Ginny_Nemchak_02

The texture on these burlap flowers is amazing! I filled in a small arrangement here with some black burlap string to help fill in the space.

Another little arrangement for the top corner here with coordinating silk ribbon.

Halloween_Blues_Holiday_Greeting_Card_Petaloo_Polly's_Paper_Studio_Ginny_Nemchak_04

From this angle you can see them embossing a bit better. I used a flat black for the spider web and a clear gloss on the die cut frame.  I utilized a white doily to break of the focal images from the background which were all in a similar color tone and was looking a bit washed out.

A few embellies like the metal clip and buttons really wrap this card up and balances the large flowers.
