Boooooo .... 

It's October and it won't be long until little ghosts and goblins are making an 
appearance at your door.  Trick or treat?  

Halloween is one of my favorite times of year to create home decor.  My grandchildren LOVE to come to "Mimi and Papa's house" and see all of the ghostly delights!

Every year, I try to create a couple of new things to add to my decorations.  With DecoArt's new Media line of products, creating is easy because you get dependable results!

This year, one of the things I am adding to the ensemble is this spooky and fun to create mixed media witch's hat.

Very dimensional and fun, this witch's hat began as a very inexpensive plain paper mache witch hat you can easily find at most large craft stores.  With a little imagination, an array of DecoArt Media products, some die cut black cats and stars, some twine to create "spiderwebs" and some other surprise elements, you can create your own Halloween decor piece that you would find in higher end gift shops at a fraction of the price!

For the complete pictorial tutorial, head on over to DecoArt's Mixed Media Blog for all of the gorey details!


  1. Totally INCREDIBLE Candy - just a huge WOW. It looks FABULOUS on the DecoArt site - great tutorial. What a WONDERFUL addition to your decor. The grandkids will LOVE it. j.
