Spooky Haunting !

We have a Japanese dollar chain store over here ( called Daiso ) 
and this year they have loads of adorable Halloween decor / costumes for sale
and when I saw these gauzy hats in different Halloween colors - I just had to bring one home with me to try an altered witch's hat . ;) 
I diecut this Lantern tree using at least
 4 different My Little Shoebox patterned papers 
in the colors I wanted - some of them I inked in the color of choice
to make piecing this come together easier. 

The little Ghouls were shadowed with extra black ones and then given a little textured Stickles treatment.
 To make the little bats stand out more I also stickled them in royal blue. 
Finally I adhered my entire Lantern tree on half a circular diecut from the My Little Shoebox Trick or Treat line. 
The Spooky Haunting sentiment is from Cottage Cutz Haunted House border die.
Finally , when I was happy with my outcome I adhered my entire piece around the brim of the hat 

I've had a fab time this year with all the Halloween projects thus far, 
& I'm SOOOO thrilled that Cottage Cutz's Christmas release is available 
for pre-order NOW !!! woohoo ! Gotta love them all !

Look at you and the spooky Halloween decor, Pearl! This is awesome! So, so fun and such a cool transformation of that dollar store hat. I love all the detail you've added to that sweet die cut. The Stickles is fabulous, and I love the shadowing effect on the ghost. SO sweet. Cannot wait to see what you do with the Christmas cuts. :)
