Hi guys
Well its my absolute favourite time of the year and my all tome favourite day is fast approaching and the theme for this fortnight challenge on the
That Craft Place challenge blog
So as you can imagine I had loads of fun with this one

I started with a cardboard circle cut out the centre and reinforced it with some paper Mache, then painted it black.
I then wrapped it in Halloween tinsel.
The next step was to make some clay witches hats ,pumpkins and spiders
once dry painted and varnished them.

I put the gorgeous wide printed Halloween ribbon across the middle and then added the clay bits with hot glue, added another Halloween ribbon to hang it and there you have it.
So easy and fun to make, all the ribbons , clay and paints can be got from Lisa at
That Craft Place.

anyway the first is for 

theme is 
Girls but no Pink

ok so here is my make

i made the bodyform from newspaper after watching a video on you tube by Angela Holt.
although the cheap doll hubby picked up for me was a little flat in the backside area so i had to modify and enhance her a little,lol the you tube video doesn't show how to make the stand so i had to work that out for myself, wasnt too hard , just a stick some more newspaper and a few circles cut and layered
once it was completely dry i painted with cream acrylic, and then covered with some lovely lace fabric my daughter gave me that she had cut of the bottom of a dress,( oh the joys of being short )
then a few flowers and metal embellishments from my stash of goodies from That Craft Place.
and finished with a couple of beads for the bodice topper .
i really loved making this, so you can expect to see a few variations over the next few months lol

here are a couple of different views excuse the bad pics i as you know by now a rubbish photograther lol

give it a go, you will get addicted to, and dont forget you can get all the lovely bits to decorate it from
