Halloween Decor – by Darsie Bruno

Those of us who had the privilege of getting a sneak preview of Darsie’s project for today have all gone totally giddy over it!  TOTALLY!!!  To make this captivating home décor piece, Darsie used a purchased witches hat and adorned it with circles cut from Halloween designer paper and then decked it out with a fabulous bow made from a variety of ribbons.  And as an added bonus, we have two more Halloween projects by Darsie after this one, so be sure to scroll all the way down!


Now is this CUTE or what!!!

The circles are just die cut from Halloween paper and a variety of ribbon create the gorgeous bow!

    This is so cool, you could have a party and offer the treat bag and candle as a door prize for a game such as bobbing for apples or figuring out what is lurking in a paper sack being passed around! The hat could serve as a centerpiece or hiding other ghoulish delights! Makes me want to have a party now!

  2. Darsie totally rocked this!!
