I’m not done yet…..

….I have one more thing up my sleve today 😉 Once again I’ve been playing around with Dreaming Tree’s newest bundle and this time its the Firecracker Tea Light Topper. No need telling that I didn’t have much use for a hat from Uncle Sam, so I made it into a Mourner’s Hat:

I stayed true to most of the design leaving out some items though. I did make another brim for the hat so it looks a little more spooky 😉 I used black AC Cardstock and Graphic 45 paper – Rare Oddities and An Erie Tale. The flower is made from the Blossom Basket SVG also from Dreaming Tree (I made all 4 flowers and put them together and added a little bling) The trim is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology. I found some bats in the Silhouette Design Store (Design ID #49733 and Design ID #49734) which I glued on both sides of some purple pipe cleaners and rolled around a pencil. I glued them on the inside of the hat. Finally I inked the edges with a grey inkpad from Prima Inc.

Now Uncle Sam’s Hat has gone Halloween and is ready as a centerpiece on the table for our Halloween parties 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to leave a small comment for me ❤

  1. I really admire that you can see beyond what a project looks like now to what it can be used for at another time. Sometimes it’s hard to see past the original use. Great ideas!👍
