Halloween is getting closer and if you haven't completed all of your Halloween crafts yet, here's one that is super easy and so cute. Today I would like to share with you a quick way to make a Halloween door hanger.
First you want to start off with a 12x12 piece of patterned paper of your choice. Cut it into 6 strips, each being 2x12 inches.
I want to accordion fold these strips, so I used my Score-Pal to measure and score, making the folding much easier. I scored every half inch. If you don't have a scoring tool, you can measure with a ruler, mark and fold.
Here you can see the scored lines.
Next accordion fold your strips by folding on the up side then again on the underside.
Here is what it should look like.
Here are all of my strips...all accordion folded.
Next attach and adhere all of your accordion folded strips together.
Adhere the two ends together to form a circle.
Cut out two circles one 4 inches and the other 3 1/4 inches.
Next, turn over your accordion folded circle and squeeze it together and adhere the larger 4 inch circle to the back. This will keep your accordion circle together.
Turn it back over to the side you intend to use as the front and adhere the smaller circle. By the time this drys, it should hold together nicely.
Next I used a doily to cover up the circle. You could put anything you would like on yours.
Next I picked a couple of Clear Scraps acrylic shapes to go on my door hanger...the Large Star and the Mini Clear Bat.
Next, I cut out a star using my Silhouette. I wanted this to go on top of my clear star. The cut was 5 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches.
I adhered it to my acrylic star and inked the edges with black StazOn ink.
Using more black StazOn ink and a sponge, I colored my bat. I wanted a cloudy look to the bat, not a straight black look. So, by using the sponge, I achieved that.
Now to finish up! I added my star and bat using a little foam adhesive for dimension.
I also added this chipboard title on the bat, but you can add whatever title you would like.
How fun is that? I love the fact that I can dress up my Clear Scraps Acrylic shapes anyway I want. Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have fun crafting your Halloween with Clear Scraps! Check out the Clear Scraps Website to see all of their amazing products!
