Halloween Project

Coming to terms with the fact the lazy days of summer are almost behind for another year (even though it hit low 90's today ).
I have had the urge to get ready for the arrival of fall.

From changing the colors that are in my home decorations, to checking out all the new styles of fall sweaters that are showing up in the stores.
I am ready for a cool breeze and some local Harvest festivals.
Only natural that my creative thoughts are leaning in that direction also.

A little project that I worked on yesterday that took no time to make, with a limited amount of materials .

The frame used was a plain black plastic frame purchased from the "Dollar Store".
Applying a coat of Gesso so my paint would adhere to the plastic, used Acrylic paint for my colored squares and outlined with black window paint for dimension.
When the paint was set I covered with Mod Podge to protect.

Using felt and some embroidery thread and some buttons,this Halloween decoration was fun, fast, and easy to come together .

This little frame has already found a home with my Mother,her first Halloween decoration in her new place. :) She insisted on the grumpy Pumpkin !
