Fun Fall & Halloween Ideas

Dang! The camera is still acting whonky!
What a shame too, because Autumn’s beauty is busting out everywhere.
My mailbox today is full of emails that say people are sharing many of
my Hometalk and former Artzzle posts about Fall and Halloween.

One of the favorites (mine too) seems to be my WREATH FOR ALL SEASONS. EZ  PZ  Wreath for All Seasons
Though time consuming, this project is so easy to make.
At present, I’m working on a “tree” version in this process,
that I’ll share closer to Christmas.

Hometalk traffic has been good as well,
on my FREE HALLOWEEN PRINTOUTS from last year …
that can be used many ways, like THIS and THESE.

You all know that I love paper & gift projects but my talents don’t include food prep …
i.e. cooking or baking.  Imagine my excitement when I recently discovered THIS BLOG.
Barb Schram not only has pretty paper ideas … but look how easy her cookies are to make! And YES, I signed up to follow … so check it out!

You know my favorite decor projects are when I can use (or reuse) things I already have.
You’ll see a little of that HERE

Enough fun for today … here at least.
I’m going to close and head over to Barb’s blog to see what I can find there!

Hey, DON’T FORGET … I love reading your comments, so feel free to leave a reply 😀

Meanwhile, try not to stress over it, just start that project.

Later – Cheryl

Easy Make Halloween Mobile

Artzzle.com Halloween Mobile

Hi All.

Hope you’re having fun with the FREE HALLOWEEN PRINTABLES I sent you last time.

Here’s the mobile I made using mine.

Could this be any easier? And all you need besides papers for your cutouts, is a nice open branch, a cuphook ( a hook with a screw top) and some light weight, clear fishline (I used 8 LB line). Seriously, the hardest part of this project for me was … tieing the stupid fishline, as I’m all thumbs with fine work!

I put this in our family room and it looks great out there in it’s own little corner of my world.

These are the cutouts I showed last post … FREE HALLOWEEN PRINTABLES

Have fun with these and as always, don’t stress about it, just start!

Free Halloween Templates

Artzzle.com

Hi all. I’m in the middle of making a Halloween Mobile. Don’t have it finished yet but thought I would share my templates so you could play with them too! Click the link below for my FREE printables. When the file opens, hover your cursor over the image until the Adobe Reader menu appears, and simply choose to print from there.

HALLOWEEN PRINTABLES

For my mobile I wanted my figures to be pretty on both sides. When you’re using card stock, construction or regular colored papers, that won’t be a problem. But some of the paper I used is only one-sided so I’ll show you how I prepared those before cutting out the images.

Artzzle.com

Above is a sheet of scrapbook paper, plain on the back side. Now, fold this sheet in half, with your pretty side showing. Your fold can be either horizontally or diagonally, wherever you get the most room for your template(s).

Now open your paper to the white side, and apply glue to only one side of the fold. I use a glue wheel or double-sided tape here. Liquid glue could be used, but would have to be smoothed and spread very thin, and would be a lot messier.

After glued area is ready, fold dry side over onto the glue, and smooth. I smooth it by hand first, and then use my brayer to roll it even flatter.

Now position your templates on the paper.

Next just trace the templates and cut out your object.

Remember, my pieces here are for a mobile, so both sides will be seen. Obviously, you can avoid all the glueing and cutting if you just want a piece to put on top of something else, like a greeting card or poster.

Tomorrow, my mobile will be completed and up for photos, so I’ll post it then.

Have fun with these and as always, don’t stress about it, just start!
