Hello my friends!
My name is Alison, and my blogging home is called Oopsey Daisy.
I am the queen of oopsey daisies. I love to create beautiful things, and I usually stumble a bit (or a lot) along the way! My blog tells the twists and turns of my crafting journeys. I draw upon my teaching experience to make fun things for my sweet 2-year-old son. I also love sewing, organizing, cooking/baking, family fun, and photography.
Allie, thanks so much for having me over today!
I have been itching for fall to arrive--and I LOVE Halloween!
Do you remember eighteen25's Christmas subway art and glitter trees from last year? Well, they inspired me to make my own glitter witch's hats and Halloween subway art!
I'm one of those crazy people who decorates for Halloween in September, so this sparkling display is brightening up my living room right now!
First, I created this Halloween subway art in Photoshop.
To make your own...
You can download your own 16x20 print here.
Have it printed at Costco and throw it in a frame!
Piece of cake!
To create the witch's hats, I bought 3 styrofoam cones and 3 wooden circles at Hobby Lobby.
I glittered up each of the cones using a bit of spray adhesive (don't you love this stuff??) I used almost an entire container of glitter for each hat. I chose to use black, orange, and purple. I love this color combo! And who says witches always have to wear black?!
After spray painting the circles black, I used E-6000 to glue the cones to the circles. Then I mounted each hat to a candlestick holder. I purchased these at the dollar store.
I added a couple of black feather boas for a spooky effect.
I gotta say--I'm loving the sparkles!
Don't you think that even witches love a little bling??? :)
Allie, thanks so much for having me today! This was so much fun!
Enjoy your Halloween!
Oh, wow. Alison, I just looove those witch hats. Anything with glitter is always great. Glitter in Halloween colors is my favorite though. And I think I might just print that poster this week!
Be sure to head over to Oopsey Daisy and visit Alison! One of my favorite sections on Alison's blog is Mommy School where you can download interactive play and learn packets for your toddler. They are SO nice. I might have to start using some of them in centers in my kindergarten class!
