Fall...cooler weather, shorter days and Halloween. That one ghoulish day when we can all pretend to be any character we want. And let's not forget about the fun parties. So I created a fun table decoration just for a Halloween party. So let's get started with how I made this project.
To start, I added a few glass beads to a Ziploc bag, then added in a few drops of Orange ZIG Kurecolor Ink. Then just shake the bag until all the beads are coated in ink.
Next, I used a ZIG Painty FX pen in Black to paint the rim and bottom of a glass. I used a small piece of decorative tape to mask off the stem of the glass, this way I had a clean paint line. Once the paint was dry, I simply removed the tape.
To add a bit of contrast, I used a ZIG Painty pen in Iris.
Now on to the medallions. I used my die cutting machine and steel die to make three medallions. I used my ZIG Writer in Arctic White to add a bit of detail around the edges. Then, I used my ZIG Writer in Black to outline the center portions.
Now to put it all together. Start by adding the beads into the glass. Next I die cut a couple of bats and used my ZIG 2 Way Glue pen to adhere them to the glass.
One medallion I stamped a short sentiment in the center and then simply laid at the bottom of the glass.
Next, I added straight pins to the back of two medallions. One of them I simply laid across the glass. The next I stood up in the beads and also added a bit of ribbon.
A fun project to create and how cute would this be sitting amongst your other Halloween decorations?
