Autumn really loves vintage Halloween...just like her momma!
This is a painted hat box decoupaged with some old vintage Halloween postcard images. A
paper mache skull with vintage crepe paper collar, (I was thinking Shakespere~ish ?)
a vintage postcard image made into a stand-up photo trimmed in vintage silver tinsel garland. I added a flickering electric candle for some glow effect.
I love finding old tinsel, garland, crepe paper at yard sale, flea markets and thrift stores. I'm like a kid in a candy store when I find some!
Autumn was helping Kevin's mom clean out her basement and they sent over a bag of goodies; the hat box and the vintage crepe paper were two of the things in the bag that I used for this piece.
I think I'm about ready to switch gears soon, It's time to get back to some embroidery and I've started knitting my second scarf. Really, we have way too many crochet scarves around here already. I'm going to watch some Youtube tutorials on how to knit hats. I cannot for the life of me learn out of a book... hmmm... I should of been a hands on, interest led homeschooler. Just thing of how much I would know by now! Well, it's never too late, right?
*Also please, oh please let there be no crazy raccoons running around my tent at night!
