Stashbusting September Project #10: It's A Witch Thing

The "Open House" link party is still going on until midnight Pacific time. I've had so much fun seeing what's been linked up.

After busting open a package of wood plaques for an earlier Stashbusting project, I got an idea for a quick girlfriend gift for some friends I'm seeing this week. I also found I mean I knew I had ( I did!) a package of wood embellishments that I bought after last Halloween for like $1, if that. Forgot to take pics along the way but pretty basic.


  • Wood plaques and cutouts
  • Scrapbook paper scraps
  • Mod Podge
  • Cream acrylic paint
  • Printed sentiment ( again with the Avery clear label paper)
  • Wire
  • Ribbon scraps
Cover plaques w/ scrapbook paper using Mod Podge. Sand edges when dry. Paint / wipe off cream acrylic paint. Edge and stipple  w/ black ink. Adhered sentiment to finished plaque

Painted wood cutouts black and dry brushed w/ cream acrylic. Went over the top of those with some  Stickles iridescent to give a glitter effect (doesn't show up great in photos).  Super glued witch hats onto plaques. Drilled holes on either side and attached wire and to the plaques and then tied ribbon scraps on. 


Oh and let no surface be unblinged....dotted the "i's with gold adhesive rhinestones!

Cute! I need a sign like that for my house!

I also need to bust my stash. I am getting ready to organize and maybe if I am brave I will take photos and blog about the stash.
