Mad Hatter’s Mourner’s Hat with a Twist?

Hello – I’m back again this Sunday with more Halloween spookiness. This time from SVG Attic.

I really can’t decided whether it’s a Mad Hatter’s Hat or a Mourner’s Hat. It’s definitely a hat!

I wanted to make the Mourner’s Hat from the JGW Raven Quest kit this Halloween but as I progressed, the project changed due to my hyperactive brain. “I wonder if this can be done…..?” “Hmmmm can I do this…..?”

The answer: Yes! I did it. Presenting the Halloween Mad Hatter’s Mourner’s Hat with a twist:DSC_0006

The hat is made from AC Cardstock in Black and Charcoal and inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink in White.

I made the panels and the little shelves myself with the Silhouette Software. The Panels are embossed with a Bark patterned embossing folder from Darice.

I made small holes in the back of each shelf for the light to shine through.

I added a scratch mark in one of the panels and backed it with vellum – also for light to shine through. I found it in the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #118964 by Sophie Gallo.

Then I got busy decorating the hat with all sorts of nick nack Halloween style I could find in my stash.

The flowers are from Prima, several of the decor pieces are from Ideaology  and the gem swirls are from BoBunny.

I wrapped “Mummy Cloth” around the hat as a band and also around the bow.

One of the most awesome feature, is the Zombie Hand that holds the lantern. It’s also from Ideaology and I love it to bits….It’s so cool.

It’s pretty creepy in the dark:

Skellington on a Stick

Hello – hope you’re having an amazing Tuesday today 🙂 Mine’s been pretty lazy so far but I guess soon I’ll have to go stretch the old bones and go for a walk.

Talking about bones….I was so inspired by Annita Kristine Schøtt Pedersen’s cute snowman on the SVG Attic Fanatics FB page yesterday, so I had to make one myself. I don’t know how the idea popped into my head, but I realized that I wanted to make him into Jack Skellington from “The Nightmare before Christmas”

He is made from the Spring Spiral Snowman from the  JGW Made of Snow kit. All I had to alter was the face (found one in the Silhouette Design Store #156604), make the butterfly by welding two bats from the Silhouette Design Store (found here and here) and draw some white lines with a Sharpie.

I also cut some “hands” in white and added to the arms on both front and back and finally I made a button from the skeleton on the Mourner’s Hat from JGW Raven Quest.

I used AC Cardstock in Black and White along with AC POW Glitter paper in Charcoal and a tiny bit of black floss for the button.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave that little special comment for me to read 😉
