Halloween Tutorial

Hello friends!
I have a Halloween tutorial for you today!
This simple to make wall hanging could be adapted for a fun project for any holiday.

I got the idea for this tutorial from a pair of tags. These tags measure about 3 x 6.
I put the ends together to create the pattern for the hanging.

I then cut out 2 from cardstock.
I glued the 2 together to create a more thick, sturdy hanging.

I then started cutting out scrapbook paper to center on my hanging. I cut out both pieces 1/4 inch smaller than the other to fit inside each other. 

I then started layering the pieces together. I added strips of orange paper and distressed the edges of the paper to give it a more whimsical feel.

I punched holes on both sides for my ribbon.

I then glued down my title.

I then printed, cut and colored this cute digital stamp from our shop that you can find here, and adhered to the hanging.

On the other side I added a bling spiderweb and started adding the ribbon.
I took 2 pieces of ribbon to create the bows.

To add more detail I die cut these hinges from the Vintage Hardware die by Tim Holtz.

I adhered these to the back of the hanging to finish it off.

Now it's ready to hang and enjoy!

This project was fun and easy!
I hope you give it a try!

Have a lovely day, Lindsey
