Mysterious and spooky

First day of October! I ♥ it! I need to get into the spirit of Halloween and start creating more. I have managed to make this one Halloween decoration for my mantel, Scrapjacked and the Halloween hop. I killed 3 birds with one stone. If you are here for the hop, thanks for dropping by. I have a little bit to share with you.

Are you on Pinterest? Well if you aren't I highly recommend you give it a look-see. I found these awesome free Halloween printables. I used them to create this little master piece.

A little bit of Martha Halloween paper from last year.

Some AC and stickles.

I made a tiny witch hat from a scallop circle and a regular circle. Wrapped it in twine from Divine Twine. The butterfly is also from the free printable. I covered the top one in crackle stickles.

A dollar tree creepy toy and a old Jolee sticker.

More free printable.

Making Memories felt ghost and more Halloween Divine twine wrapped around mini spools from Maya Road.

Mini Rosette covered in petal soft and an AC button for the center. The shadow box was from the dollar tree and I just painted it black. I had almost all of this from past years. I collect things here and there.

Viola all done! We would love it if you played along over at scrapjacked. We drew inspiration from Kerry Lynn. Come check us out.

Make sure to leave me some love and follow my blog before you leave!
