I have been playing around with the hallween downloads that can be found in the Docraft creativity club download section. I used a mix of this years and last years downloads to make this cute halloween wall hanging.
Begin by making tourself a chipboard circle. As my background paper was prunted on A4, your circle needs to be smaller than A4. Cover the whole thing in patterned paper, and ink and distress the edges.
Next tie string around the circle as shown to form a spiders web.
Next begin to tie string around the wed lines from the middle outwards. Dont stress about the neatness, have you ever seen a perfect web naturally.
Next i used a set of sixxiz bigz dies to make the wood BOO. I covered each one in more downloaded patterned paper before inking all the edges. I added the word to the bottom of the circle.
Once i was happy with the placement of the word, i added black cardstock to the back of the circle.
Next i made myself a selection of folded rosettes in varius sizes, 1" strips, 2" strips and made the fods at 1/4 and 1/2" to give different sizes.
I cut a little banner from another download, added it to chipboard and then hung it from the circle.
To finish i added little pumpkins, bats and ghost to the hanging randomly.
And there you go, a cute wall hanging.
And dont forget to leave a comment a few posts down and you too could be playing with your very own creativity club downloads.
