SBS Monster Mash Blog Hop

I have been looking forward to this hop since it was first mentioned on the SBS facebook fan page.
I can't wait to see what everyone creates and see who is going to be the lucky talented person who will join us on the DT for the next 3 months!
I know what a talented bunch of ladies you all are so I know its not going to be an easy choice!!

So as this is a hop you should have got to me by coming through Katrina Benton.

But just incase you found me by mistake, here is the full list.

Well that should keep us busy for a while!

I knew I wanted to do something other than a card for this hop so here is my project!








This was just a plain red witches hat that I picked up for less than £2 a few days ago.  I knew I could make it more interesting without it costing a fortune or taking to much time.
I used one of the Jumbo bottle tops that are available from Betty's shop and coloured up Witchy Boo to place inside.  I coloured her in red and black to go with the hat.  I cut black stars using my big shot and black felt....... it worked like a dream, and stuck them all over.  I created a band for the hat and a huge oversized bow and stitched them in place.  Zigzaged cut all the ends of the tuile and used my hot glue gun to stick the bottle top to the knot in the bow.

I hope you like the hat..... I did this to show you just how easy it is to make something individual from a mass produced costume accessory.  No one else will have one the same.  Its just a shame my head is to big for it!!!  Fingers crossed it will fit my niece.

Your next stop is number 13, Ginger Paige
