Ok I have to be honest even though I've been a scrapbooker for a long time doing these four projects were my absolute favorite! I ended up submitting # 3. It was quite a toss up between the tray and the birdhouse but I was trying to be different and show that even distressed doodlebug is still really cute!
Decor 1 - halloween wreath
Using spooky town I wrapped a small straw wreath with basic black wide ribbon. Then I cut 1 inch wide strips of the beetle black petit prints paper. I wrapped that around and used very short hem pins to secure the paper to the wreath. I'm sure a glue gun would work just fine too. Then I cut strips of black magic paper to make the bow. Add some sugar coated stickers and ta-da a super cute wreath. I'm thinking about making another for the other door that leads into my dining room. Love it! :)
Decor 2 - birdhouse
I made this for my little Zoe's room but it turned out so well I thought I would post it. I used the Ladybug Garden line. I purchased a small birdhouse from my local craft store. I used paint from left over paint samples I got while trying to figure out what colors my walls should be and LOTS of measurements. To get the ladybug to sit in the little birdy house I used fishing wire and pop dots.
Decor 3 - Bon Apetit Nonna tray
I didn't want to use my Nonna's original cookie reciepe so I make a photo copy of it and had a blast making it. I took Doodlebug's Bon Apetit line and distressed the whole thing. The tray is 7 gypses and used Tim Holtz distress ink in walnut along with some other ranger products to make the batter on the two spoons. I love how Doodlebug can be cute or you can make it cozy by using some stickles and distress ink. Enjoy!
Decor 4 - paper pumpkin
