Halloween Centerpiece

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!


Wow, where did the weekend go???  Hope ya' all had a good one! I would like to share this centerpiece I made.  I was shopping and found these items ALL at 1/2 off. So, I thought why not take advantage of a sale and get my juices going to create something. So, here is what I came up with:)



I took the washed out tray and added the sparkly purple~ little spooky garland and layered it on the tray. Then, I took these cute little lanterns and added some vinyl cuts to them. I cut the BOO at 1 1/4, the EEK at 1 1/4 and the GHOST at 3" all from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. I used white vinyl and had my speed on high and my pressure on med. I transferred them to the lanterns using transfer tape. SUPER EASY!! 


I added some webbing and some cute beaded spiders that I had in my stash. I cut a few bats at 3/4" and attached them to some wire to have them appear as if they were flying around. Just add a few tea lights.....kinda fun and yet an inexpensive centerpiece.

I am entering this is the following challenges:

1.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #11 ~ Halloween theme party or celebration
2.) Frosted Designs-Fabulous Friday  ~Color challenge
4.) Whimsical Wednesday Challenge ~Halloween Home Decor
5.) She's a Sassy Lady ~Stretch yourself
6.) Little Scrap Pieces  ~Copy Cat Friday challenge

Sherrie K

  19. Sherrie, this is FANTASTIC! It's truly a gift to put together a centerpiece like this out of the elements you did. You have such creative vision. :o) The in-flight bats are amazing, the beaded spiders are fabulous, and the garland is gorgeous! I LOVE that you used vinyl.. I'm eager to try that, but never have. Thank you for sharing what settings you used. :o) Marvelous creation, my dear friend. Thank you for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesday! :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
