31 Days of Samhain: Day 13: Bewitching Home Blog Party

Ahhh my loves it's a Bewitching Time, and Bewitching Home  Blog Party by The Witch of Howling Creek. For this awesome Party I must thank her for hosting. It's sure to be an awesome treat.  For me Samhain isn't Samhain unless the home is decorated as well.  Lots of food and candy too.  I'm going to share two of my projects that I am working on to have in my home this Halloween.

First project up:

Samhain Wall Hanging

Items needed:
Scissors, 1/2 yd Halloween themed fabric, 1/2 yd fusible interfacing, 2 yds black ribbon, three buttons, iron & board, tape measure, white glue, fusible webbing

Directions: Cut interfacing and orange fabrin into 18" square. Iron together,. cut two pieces of Halloween print fabric and two pieces of fusicble webbing into 9" square. Iron webbin onto fabric.  Position print squares onto orance squares. Xut three black ribbons to create  hooks for hangers. Affix with white glue along with Halloween themed buttons.

Second Project:

Witch Candy Holder:
Items needed:

Old cookie holder (round tin) , pen, black self adhesive craft foam. scissors, 1/2 yd black satin fabric, 1/2 yd Halloween Wire edged ribbon, glue gun & glue sticks. halloween candy.

For this project I have my old danish cookie tins, that I'm going to wrap.  Place the tin lid on the self adhesive black craft foam. Trace around the outside of lid with pen.
With the scissors, cut out the black foam circle. cut a pieve of black satin at the same time.
Apply the black satin circle to the adhesive side of the black foam circle.
Next cut out the top of the witch's hat: cut a half circle of black foam and satin & apply the satin to adhesive foam. Form into a cone. Use hot glue gun to rin a small bead of glue along inside seam to secure cone sides together.
Now affix the cone to the hat base,

Then add the ribbon along the base. Using the hot glue gun to help secure it. Now toss in candy and leave on a table!!
Viola!!!! You have a pretty witch hat candy holder, you can also line the inner tin with some light parchment to protect the candy.

My Kitchen Altar, decorated for Samhain:
I have scented pine cone, two ear of Indian multicolored corn, a leaf plate that I made, two harvest pillars.  A bowl for offerings, and my room scent diffuser. It's on my kitchen wall & looks out over the whole kitchen!!!

Well that's it my loves, Happy Halloween and Happy Decorating!!! Images and idea taken from Great Gift under 30 mins, Card 45 & 84.
