Spooky Haunting !

Hi again , everyone ! 
Pearl , in Sunny Singapore here .
I trust all our blogging friends have been enjoying 
all the different wonderful Halloween ideas all month long so far.

I have a simple decor idea to share today -
we have a Japanese dollar chain store over here ( called Daiso ) 
and this year they have a lot of adorable Halloween decor / costumes for sale
and when I saw these gauzy hats in different Halloween colors - I just had to bring one home with me to try an altered witch's hat . ;) 
I diecut this Lantern tree using at least
 4 different My Little Shoebox patterned papers 
in the colors I want - some of them I inked in the color I wanted 
to make piecing this come together easier. 

The little Ghouls were shadowed with extra black ones and then given a little textured Stickles treatment.
 To make the little bats stand out more I also stickled them in royal blue. 
Finally I adhered my entire Lantern tree on half a circular diecut from the My Little Shoebox Trick or Treat line. 
The Spooky Haunting sentiment is from our Haunted House border die.
Finally , when I was happy with my outcome I carefully adhered my entire piece around the brim of the hat 

If you've had a great time with us jumpstarting your Halloween projects, 
you will be as thrilled as I am to know that our Christmas release is available 
for pre-order NOW !!! woohoo ! Gotta love them all !

WOW, Pearl! This is a wonderful idea! This would be so cute sitting atop a pumpkin, or I can see this worked into a pretty Halloween wreath! Wouldn't that be cute? Very, very well done!! I totally agree that the Christmas release is wonderful, but I'm sure gonna miss all these brilliant Halloween projects!! Thanks so much for the inspiration!!
