Magic Hat

“When Witches go riding, and black cats are seen,

the Moon laughs and whispers

’tis near Halloween”

Ohhhh how I love that poem! It sets the perfect mood for a spooky Halloween night and it is just the mood I want you to be in right now……. (add a little howling of the wind and maybe some wolfs or thunder too 😉 )

Oh darn…..one of the Witches dropped her hat 😮 and what is this sorcery???? It levitates!!!

This out of this world cool Hovering Witch Hat from Simply Crafty Svgs is made from AC Cardstock in Black and decorated with papers from DCWV Inc. – “Le Noir” stack, “Ghost Stories” stack and “Curiosities” stack.

I also used lots of flowers and leaves from Prima and trinkes from my stash to embellish the hat along with a few spiders 😉

And what is the sorcery that makes this Magic Hat levitate?

A cleverly hidden box underneath the hat, also perfect for storing treats 😉

This hat is so easy to make it’s almost magic and would be perfect for treats, for small presents or even (if  you downsize it) for place cards 😉

Thanks for joining me today – I hope you enjoyed one of the last Halloween projects from me until next year 🙂

Feed Me, Seymour,

Feed me all night long
That’s right, boy!
You can do it!
Feed me, Seymour
Feed me all night long
‘Cause if you feed me, Seymour
I can grow up big and strong!

Remember these lyrics? If you do, you’ve definitely seen the Musical “Little Shop of Horrors” starring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin and Bill Murray. By far one of my favorite Musicals 😀

So you can imagine when I saw the awesome creation of Audrey II by Jan Hunter – I just had to scrap lift it and Sandy of Simply Crafty Svgs made it very easy.

Presenting: Audrey II (Venus Flytrap SVG File):

I had so much fun making the murderous little plant. I used AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWV Stacks Curiosities and Ghost Stories.

The leaves and the tongue are embossed with Embossing folder from Crafters Companion and Sizzix and all edges plus teeth and embossing are inked with Distress Ink in matching colors.

The plant sign is from American Crafts and I used vinyl for the text….it even has the bloody fingerprint from Seymour 😮

Finally I filled in some Spanish Moss in the pot and ….TA DAAAA…..Two-y was born (again)

This might be my only Halloween decor this year…let’s see if I have time to make some more and find the space for it.

I’ve seen several Audrey’s made lately – all look fantastic ❤

Thanks for joining me today….I think I’ll take some off from my chores and watch “Little Shop of Horrors” for the 50th time 😀
