October 2014 016100

Hello and welcome to the DCWV Too Cute To Spook halloween Hop!! TODAY the current DCWV Design Team is bringing you a group of projects that were made using the newest, cutest DCWV halloween stack, Eek-a-Boo! Halloween is quickly approaching and it’s time to turn your spooky crafting up to high gear!

Now I don’t celebrate halloween but we are doing a trunk or treat at our church for the neighborhood kids so I decided to make this sign for our car! I don’t know what else I will use yet but I am sure it will be something fun!


You have until Monday to make your blog hopping rounds! The winner will be announced Tuesday on the DCWV blog! 

Here’s the hop list:

Rita – you are here 😉

I used these sheets from the EEK A BOO stack! Here’s a fun little technique I used.

October 2014 011100
I cut them down so they would fit inside each other then used a border punch for the stars.

I flipped it over and used a little duck to cover the star border.

I couldn’t find any black glitter paper so I came up with this technique instead. I flipped it back over so the sticky side of the duck tape is ready to have glitter stick to it! And then making my own glitter background! You will find tons of more goodies on the rest of this DCWV Too Cute To Spook halloween Hop!! Bonus* DCWV is having a DT call!

    1. Rita, great project! We celebrate Halloween with over 100 trick or theater’s every year. It’s so fun to see the costumes and know that it’s still safe where I live for this celebration.

  1. It’s always fun to find other creative ways to add details to a project, like the duct tape glitter idea!

  2. Love your sign! Very creative use of duct tape to make your own glitter paper! I will have to tuck that idea away for future use. Thanks for sharing!

  3. We don’t do Halloween, either. I love your sign! The papers you used are perfect. I love the banner you added. It all came together beautifully. Using the duck tape for the glitter is fantastic! I’ll have to remember that the next time my glue and double sided tape goes missing.

  4. FUN & FABULOUS sign Rita 🙂
    LOVE how you made your sparkly stars, LOVE your banner too!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing your CREATIVE INSPIRATION!!!

  5. Something like this would sure look good on my craft room door. Thank you for the great inspiration-and love the black glitter tip.

Thank you for leaving your sweet comments, I love to hear what you have to say!
