Halloween craft number one is completed - another "jar" of items for witches brews or potions. With some help from my daughter this one features eyes. She found a bag of plastic eyeballs at the dollar store and I came up with the jar, the label and the fabric topper and twine. Label is mod-podged onto a recycled glass jar; it is a free printable downloaded from the internet. Do wish the interior eyeballs displayed better in the photo. Fun new decoration for my spooky "apothecary" shelf this year.
Can't leave out Christmas as I did work on a Christmas card as well. Trying the "Use what you have" challenge I created this card from items in my scraps and stash. The image is one I've had for many years tucked away just waiting for the right opportunity. Very simple card, a strip of gold shimmer paper and the image backed with green paper and taped onto a precut white cardstock. Just a straight forward "Merry Christmas" sentiment inside.
