Orange glitter and a bit of bling bring all that’s fun to Halloween. A dash of glitter plays amongst shredded mummy threads on this amazing wire form skeleton, creating the perfect Halloween greeting.
Begin by spraying the front of your wire form with a spray adhesive - do so in a well ventilated area per manufacturer's instructions. Once the front is adequately covered begin applying orange glitter or to the entire form and repeat this process to the back if so desired. If possible hang your skeleton from a hook to insure proper drying. Once the glitter is dry spray the skeleton with a coat of varnish again in a well ventilated area per manufacturer’s instructions.
Cut strips of cheese cloth or gauze to various lengths, and smudge with Walnut Stain Distressed Ink by Ranger. Drape the pieces of cloth or gauze over your skeleton in a random and mummy like fashion.
To create the Halloween sign begin with a 6 inch piece of baling wire that has been curled at each end - creating hooks to place through the skeletons joints. To this wire glue a piece of gauze the same length. With a 1 x 1 inch square punch create 14 squares from black cardstock. With crème cardstock and 15/16" x 15/16" square punch create 14 squares.
Using Black Soot Distressed Ink by Ranger create the words "Happy Halloween". With Scatter Straw Distressed Ink by Ranger smudge the edges of the cráme cardstock. Glue your créme and black squares together. For extra dimension randomly add orange glitter to each of the letters. Glue "Happy" together and then glue onto the strip of gauze and wire you attached to the skeleton. Do the same with "Halloween".
To one side of the sign you have created add a few tea dyed tags that have been stamped with various Halloween images. Add a strand of orange sequins to your banner for an extra touch!
Hang your Halloween treat for all to see, welcoming guests into your spooky den of fun!
