This past weekend I went to the CK convention in Jacksonville, Florida and met my sweet friend Carol. We have been friends for 4 years but had never met in person. She was exactly how I pictured her other than she was even more beautiful in person than on the little pictures that you see on blogs and SCS posts. She is so talented and I asked her to share some of how she comes up with her wonderful creations. She shared some ideas with me and we made two gorgeous creations. I can't wait until she posts them so you can see more of her wonderful work. We made a Halloween and a Christmas tabletop centerpiece using recycled items and dollar store finds. They were gorgeous! I decided I would try one on my own using some different items I found at the dollar store. Mine isn't as elegant or detailed but I like it anyway!
I purchased the box, the skeleton, box, pumpkins (I painted them white), and the candlestick at the Dollar Tree and Dollar General. I cut out the tree and spider using Tim Holtz dies and glittered them up with black glitter. Then I added some cool flowers I purchased on Etsy, a few die cut leaves, cheesecloth, and some ribbon. It didn't take much time, and it will look great on my table or work.
I am entering this in the Haunted Design House Challenge this week.
