have you seen these beauties in the Halloween Martha Mag?
they are amazing, right?
also, very expensive.
like $100-$200 expensive
I decided to try to make a mini knock- off.
this one is about 10" high
not quite as elaborate,
but cost me about $4
( I had everything but the glitter)
Make a few to set on a buffet or use as a centerpiece
and you can make the same spooky statement
I just used white cardstock and cut it out
I then used a sponge brush and brushed on Elmer's glue
and sprinkled Martha's onyx glitter on top.
I cut each piece, one from top to middle
the other from bottom to middle,
and put them together.
I did have to add hot glue in the cuts to hold it together.
does this make any sense?
tips to make your own:
use something thicker, maybe cardboard or foam core board
(mine is a little wobbly)
paint your paper/cardboard black before glittering
(I didn't, so it took about 3 coats of glitter to cover that white paper!)
I'm going to attempt a chandelier sometime in the future,
maybe for miss A's first bday party,
I'm thinking hot pink!

Here is more Halloween decor for you to enjoy!
all you need is a wood wreath form (got mine at Michael's)
I then spray painted it black,
hot glued on some mini pumpkins,
and added a black bow to my wreath hanger.
