I've been hanging out on Craftster again and got a great idea for a Halloween craft.
I went to SCRAP to pick up some orange tissue paper & a few sheets of black construction paper. Have I mentioned how much I love SCRAP? I got a bunch of things while I was there (including a book about Japanese inspired quilts for $1), but the paper products cost less than 50 cents. Not too shabby. I grabbed a few old glass jars from the cupboard and got to work.
It's pretty self-explanatory, I ripped up the tissue paper and layered it on with the collage glue. I actually mixed a bit of glitter in with the glue, although I'm not sure how noticeable it is.
Then while the glued dried, I cut out the face pieces. Then I glued them on as well, and covered the whole thing with another layer of glue.
Stick a little tea-light in the jar and they're good to go!
Now, when I went to work today and was bragging about my newest little craft project, my coworker listened polite and responded "Yeah, I think we did those in kindergarten." Oh well, it's not the first time that I've displayed the artistic ability of a 5 year old. =P
