Monster Mash Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Monster Mash Blog Hop, brought to you by the design teams of Made Especially For You and Exploring Cricut!

Today the design teams of Made Especially For You and Exploring Cricut have teamed up to share with you all sorts of spooktacular monster-themed projects to help get your crafty gears turning for all those upcoming Halloween projects!

If you've come from Kim's blog, you're in the right place! If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Ashley at Made Especially For You

For my project, I created a Halloween banner.  This was really fun to do and so simple. I created the banner pennants by using a  large cereal box. I was able to get all 3 cut out of one box.

I Mod Podged the pattern papers to the cardboard base and then began by decorating:) I inked all the edges in black. 

The spider was a stamp that I cut out and then attached by using silver floss. I put Glossy Accent all over the spider.

Dracula needed some red eyes so, of course, I used Stickles.

I added Liquid Pearls to Mr. Bones for his eyes.

Pennants - Create A Critter 11.73"
Eek - Happy Hauntings 3.12"
Frankenstein - Happy Hauntings 3.14"
Dracula - Happy Hauntings 3.14"
