thanks + fabulous Halloween project

I am really touched by all the baby love. Thank you so much. It feels good to share it. :)

With Halloween just around the corner, I wanted to post this adorable project by new Design Team member, Jennifer. She took our Happy Home Collection and broke it up into 2 projects. The first one is this spooky-chic candle holder. Some of the details I love are the sequins and spider web roofline and the googly eyes along the bottom. Here's how she created the project.

I used the middle house and the smallest house to make a candle holder. The small house is the base that I glued the middle sized one to. There are little teeth in the door and German glass glitter lining the inside of the windows and door. I rubbed stickles into the tulle "smoke" to make that sparkle too.

Trim - Fabric Barn, Bazzill
Google Eyes - Michael's
Diecut - Little Yellow Bicycle
Paper - Bazill, Basic Grey
Ink - Colorbox, Tattered Angels

Glitter - Stickles, Jolee Jane
Paint - KaiserCraft
Candle - Partylite

And with the large house, she created a "Welcome to our Home" sign to give to her sister who just bought a house. Sweet housewarming gift, isn't it?

Both projects are great Jennifer! I love the "Welcome to our Home" idea especially! What a great idea for a new home gift. I think I need to borrow that one.
