I'm thrilled to be joining the DL.Art team as Guest Designer for the Thankful Thursday Halloween Challenge (but, of course, thank you cards are always welcome if Halloween doesn't float your boat). DL.Art has some fabulous new Halloween bundles and I got to play with the Neon Green Plus Bundle which offers 5 yards each of black/white and orange/white twine, 4 yards each of Neon Green and Black crinkle ribbon and 2 fab Halloween buttons. The Neon ribbon actually glows in the dark under a black light. EEEK! How cool is that!?
I've made a little Halloween decor piece. This is actually a large clothespin I've painted black and covered the front with some Halloween DP. The medallion is made with the Neon Green Plus bundle goodies and backed with a small black doily from Doodlebug. I used a Tim Holtz Bigz Die and cut "Boo" 3 times and layered and bats cut and embossed with a Cuttlebug set to fly above on wire. That top part is removable, in case you want to hold a recipe or other type of Halloween greeting.
Here's a closeup of the medallion. I punched a large circle, covered it with transfer tape and pleated the crinkle ribbon in layers with one of the buttons in the center. To make the tassel, I just wound both colors of twine around 3 of my fingers, tied it through the top loop and then again partially down the strands, cut through the bottom loop and trimmed to length. Easy peasy. Here I used a black Doodlebug doily as a backing, but wouldn't it be cool to use lace instead and make it a wearable brooch accent for a coat or jacket? For a romantic twist, how about Diana's Intimate bundle, where the centerpiece is already made for you. Check that out HERE. OOH, la la!
There are a number of options available with these fabulous new Halloween bundles. And even if you don't have a black light, the neon colors just POP, all on their own. So bright and fun.
The Neon Bundles offer 4 yards each of black and 4 yards of your choice of Orange, Green, or purple Neon ribbon.
The Neon Plus Bundle offers one of the ribbon bundle colors and adds 5 yards of both orange/white and black/white twine and two Halloween buttons.
And the Neon Premium Bundle adds two more buttons to the Neon Plus assortment. WooHoo!
