Webster's "Trick or Treat" Blog Hop



As you know, Halloween will be here before we know it! Today, the Webster's team is sharing some fun inspiration with you to get ready for the season. Our new line, Once Upon a Halloween, is perfect for doing so.

Here's the project that I made to share with you.


 I found some ugly old frames in a thrift store a while ago. I painted this one white and added a coat of Lumiere to give it a sheen. Then, I decorated it to make a pretty home decor piece. It's sitting on my entryway table, but could easily go on the mantle or special place on a wall.



I placed the Princess Petals in the corner, along with that cute owl from the Perfect Accents set. A scrap of ribbon from the Palm Beach line went perfectly, too.

 I cut some paper from the 6 by 6 pad and placed it inside. Then, using foam adhesive, I added a journaling card. I made the banner along the top, adding more resin flowers and Dazzle Me gems.

Finally, I created the 'Boo' sentiment using the adorable kitty cameo as one of the 'O's. I edged it with silver stickles to tie it in with the chipboard letters.

There are several "treats" hidden on our blogs today. So, be sure you've left a comment on all of them to have as many chances as possible to be a winner. You have until October 11 to do so. Winners will be announced on Friday, the 12th.

My blog is the last stop! So, head on back to the Webster's Pages blog when you are done.

Hope you enjoyed my project today! Thanks so much for stopping by.
