LOADS OF PROJECTS! SILVER LEAF PUMPKIN, HALLOWEEN WREATH, GLITTERED BOOK PAGE WREATH AND HOLIDAY KISSING BALL OH MY!


Happy Halloween!! So great so see you! Love your costume! ha! just kidding!!!

Just wanted to put up a quick post to show you Tween Hearts fabulous Halloween projects and share with you a couple of holiday projects I finished last night and this morning. So lots of photos and little jabbering ha!

I took Tween Heart to Michaels and this is what she picked out (no coaxing from me...really!)



And she created this gorgeous Halloween wreath...





She also silver leafed a faux pumpkin....





Tween Heart behind the sceens getting ready for the big reveal! ha!



Voila!....



Here she is with her personal stylist (my beautiful daughter)



She wanted to add some festive trimmings to her silver leaf pumpkin...





She is so much fun and isn't intimitated by anything (she has 3 brothers ha!). Tween Heart has my heart!

Now for my project update

Book wreath with red glitter tips ~ bit cloudy here this morning, so I tried a couple of different settings on my little camera.







This one took just over 150. The red glitter is a very Christmasy red, unfortunately it shows as a deep red. Oh well *sigh*

Remember this tease?



It has been transformed to this....







I made this kissing ball using a 4" round styro form and it took just over 50 of the 3.5" scalloped punouts, and is about 7" in diameter.

I am thrilled with all three! I need to stage them a bit for the etsy photos, so it will be a few days before I can post them.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you and your loved ones have a safe and fun Halloween!

Cheers!

Tina- Holy Cow! Those are fabulous...and I love that your Little Miss Tween is so spunky! Loving that little netting around her shirt...she is my kinda kid! She did a wonderful job on her wreath. Just wondering (not knowing how old you are) Is she your daughter or your granddaughter?

Your paper wreaths are absolutely WOWers! What a great job and I think that was a lot of work!! I think I read somewhere before in your posts how you glittered just the edges...I gotta go find that again. They are perfect-absolutely perfect...and I think it might be fun to make some for the teachers using out-of-date school books. Great idea! Hugs-Diana

Happy Halloween Tina Sweetie...
Boy have you been a busy gal. I love seeing Tween Heart and her gorgeous creation. She did an awesome job making her wreath and picking out her own choices. She must take after someone. Anyone? Anyone?

What a beautiful job she did on her pumpkin. I would say that it will be gorgeous for the holidays. Just gorgeous. Tina her little face is just priceless.

I love, love, love the wreath you made with that little touch of red, it is so cute. I also love the kissing ball. You always have a craft cooking in your kitchen. I love it.

Thank you so much for sharing today. I have so enjoyed my visit.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

First, your tween is absolutely darling and i feel like her personality is written all over her, she looks like way to much fun!. The silver pumpkin is wonderful and all of your wreaths and ball, it looks very labor intensive!

Hi Tina, They look fantastic and what a clever tween. I love her pumpkin. The wreath and balls must have taken you so long to do, they look amazing.
Take care tina

That pumpkin looked great and then she added the gorgeous bling bling and it was even better. Loved the kissing ball. That is such a fun little addition for holiday decor and so sparkly.

Hi Diana, just wanted to let you know that Tween Heart is my grand-niece. She is very much her mother's daughter, whom I also adore!

Cheers!
