Happy Halloween 2014

 If you are having a party tomorrow night, or over the weekend, here's the roundup of Halloween crafts from the blog over the last few weeks:
Happy Halloween!

Halloween Monster Eyes

I always feel like, somebody's watching me.

Last minute Halloween decorations needed? Here is your answer - simple and easy monster eyes.

What I Used:
Eyes Template
Black Card

[right-click and save to your computer to print]

 Using the eyes template, draw around the outlines on to black card and cut out the shapes with 
sharp scissors:
Add your eyes to walls or doors to make sure any trick or treaters know they are being watched:
If you have glow in the dark card/paint - these would be amazing! But you can also add 
decoration with glitter, glue and paint to personalise the decorations:

Glitter Trick or Treat

Looking to add a bit of sparkle to your Halloween decorations?  Glitter Glue is your answer.

What I Used:
Glitter Glue
Acetate Sheet

The method to create these transfers are largely similar to the glitter spiderwebs and glitter transfers I have created before.   Simply print or draw a template - I chose 'trick or treat' in an appropriate font - and trace this over an acetate sheet with the glitter glue.  I find outlining first the easiest method:
...before filling the space.  
Be sure to remove any air bubbles and make sure that there are no empty or thin areas.
I also mixed up my glitter glue colours: 
Leave the glitter glue to dry fully.  I leave mine overnight to make sure it is fully set.  You'll know when this has happened as the glitter glue will start to peel away from the acetate sheet:
 They are easily removed and can then be used to embellish and decorate!

A few months ago I posted a quick DIY felt flower pom pom tutorial and today, I'm showing how these can be used, in Halloween-themed colours, to create fab garlands, wreaths and door hangings.
