Halloween Door Hanger

Are you ready for a challenge! Inspiration Emporium is challenging you to make a Spooktacular Halloween Decorations! Here is my version of the challenge.

 Stamp the large Circus Letter with Black Archival Ink onto manilla card stock or a tag. Let dry.

 Color the letters using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. Be generous.

 Spritz with water and then dry well with a Heat Tool.

 Cut the letters out with Stamp2cut or you can use scissors. 

 Cut a 2" strip of tissue wrap and run a gather stitch on the sewing machine down the center for gathering. Gather the tissue wrap then sew to a black satin ribbon. 

Also gather the black tulle down the center and then sew it to the center of the black ribbon as well. This will become the base for our project.

Using Stamp2cut and some bats out. No need to stamp just dial in the size you want the bats and cut them out. Easy!!!

Paint Glue N' Seal over the surface of the bats.

Add the new Stickles Dry Fine Glitter in Black Diamond. Shake off the excess. Do this to all the bats. Love the versatility of having loose glitter!

Using the Ribbon piece as your base hot glue the bird nest (I found these at the local craft store). As always be careful when using a glue gun. It's HOT!  Next glue the BOO and the bats.
