Today on Good Things Utah...“Spook”tacular Halloween Decorations!


Skull Stand

Items needed:
Circle Plaque available at any craft store
Black Spray Paint
Wine Glass
Tissue Paper
Mod Podge
E600 Glue
Pom Pom Trim
1 sheet of Scrapbook Paper (I used Mischievous “Darkest Dot” Paper, My Minds Eye MIS109)
Sandpaper
black glitter
spray adhesive
rubber bat

Directions:
Spray paint the edges of the Plaque black
Cut a circle (I just cut one free hand and sloppy) slightly larger than the base. Mod Podge the circle to the top of the plaque and then use your sand paper to sand around the edges. This will sand through the paper so it is the same size as the circle!
Adhere the pom pom ribbon around the bottom edge of the plaque.
Mod Podge tissue paper onto the wine glass for a textured feel. I ripped pieces to adhere it and did not worry about being sloppy figuring it added more texture!
 Use spray adhesive and glitter on the bat.
Attach the plaque to the top of the upside down wine glass with E6000 and attach bat as desired.


Think of all the fun possibilities! You could make a cake stand for any occasion with this same process. You could also put a little tea light (battery operated, NOT a candle) in the base of the stand to make it glow, it will show through the tissue paper!

Apothecary Jar
Items needed:
Apothecary Jar. You can get them at Walmart, the Craft store, All a Dollar, use a food jar and spray paint the lid!
Wine Glass
Tissue Paper
Mod Podge
E6000 Glue
1 sheet of Scrapbook Paper (I used Mischievous “Pumpkin Stripe” Paper, My Minds Eye MIS111)
Sandpaper
black glitter
spray adhesive
Plastic Spider
Glue Dots
Mischievous Chipboard Accessories Sheet, My Minds Eye MIS102

Directions:
Make the wine glass with tissue paper per the above instructions.

Use Spray adhesive and glitter your plastic spider (what a cheap fun way to dress up a decoration)! Attach spider to the lid as shown.
Cut a 2.5” strip of paper and wrap around the jar.
 Cut (2) 1.5” strips of paper and accordion fold them. Staple the ends together into a circle and use a glue dot to hold them together onto a circle you cut from scratch paper. Or, you could punch holes on the inside and use a thin floss to “sew” it together in a circle.
 Add a cute chipboard embellishment on the front and glue to the jar.
Glue your jar to the wine glass
Potions and Spells Book
Items needed:
Old Book
Black Spray Paint
Adhesive
Book Plate... I used Zach’s Book Plates, Teresa Collins
Glitter Spider (from above instructions)
Potions & Spells Title (available to download on our blog)
distressing ink

Directions:
Attach the book plate onto the front of the old book.
Spray paint the whole thing black!
Tear the title so it looks old and distress with brown ink. Attach with spider to the spine.
Here is the Potions and Spells title I used.  Just drag it to your desktop if you have a Mac.  If you are on a PC, click on the image so it comes up in a separate window.  Right click on the image and save it to your computer!
