Halloween projects already! Wow!
Well, I normally don't have it together 2 full months before a holiday - but I have had this project in mind for a while. A loooonnnnngggg while :)
Back in February, I made this Valentine Wreath with a picture frame. The project left me with a homeless piece of glass.
Then, in March I made some teacher appreciation clocks. Making 40 clocks, some were bound to not work - and I was left with round glass too....
I just couldn't throw the glass away - so I decided to repurpose it!
The edges of the glass are sharp, so I wrapped the edges in burlap. I took 2 inch wide strips and hot glued them along all the edges of the rectangular frame - leaving raw edges for texture:
The round glass was wrapped in burlap too:
To provide a way to hang them, I added black ribbon, glued to the back of the burlap frames. I used black to complement the black vinyl:
Finally, I used my Silhouette to cut black vinyl into a couple of Halloween scenes, and stuck the vinyl to the glass.
I create my own images, or create them from clip art I find in google - so unfortunately you can't buy these exact images anywhere.
I am willing to share the files though if you have a Silhouette and you really want them :) Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org....
I hope you are all looking forward to Halloween, because I, like most of blogland, will have a few more Halloween and fall projects over the next two months :) So here's to a Happy 1st Halloween Project of the Season!!
