I was decorating for Halloween yesterday and was finally able to set up my spooky tree. It has been a family tradition every Halloween but now that my kids are both grown and out of the house ~ I still continue the tradition in my house. As soon as the tree is set-up, I take pictures and send them to my kids. They still love it!
My tree needed some new ornaments and since I just bought almost all of the Lawn Fawn’s new release (shhhh! don’t tell my husband!) I decided to use the shaker die and the Booyah stamp set to create a cute little Halloween Ornament.
I also wanted to enter the sentiment challenge at Lawnscaping Challenge blog that is all about “sentiment”. I wanted my sentiment to stand out so I decided to use my white embossing powder with versa mark, and heat-embossed it. I think it really did pop! Not to mention the word “boo” inside the shaker!
Here is the cute ornament:
Materials used (Unless otherwise stated – everything else is Lawn Fawn):
