Hello, I'm so glad you could stop by today.
I've just put the kettle on to heat for tea.
Let me show you what I've been up to lately.
I started by printing off a copy
of an antique photo of
a little girl in period dress.
I glued her onto a piece of black foam board.
and cut her out with my Exact-o-knife.
She is wearing a hat with a wide brim
so I added a long narrow black cone to the back of her
head to represent a witch's hat.
I fashioned a little broom for her to hold
from a toothpick and some colored grass
cut from a floral pick.
I stood her up in a little girl's
black patent leather shoe
purchased at a resale shop.
A glittery pumpkin
and silk leaf are tucked into
the back of the shoe.
I cut the band off a
plastic bat ring
and hot glued it to a black wire
so that it appears to follow along above
the "little witch".
A little glittery orange tulle
and some black and silver garland
finishes it off.
All set for scaring up a Happy Halloween.
I hear the kettle whistling... time for tea.
Won't you pour a cup and stay awhile to look around.
Please leave a comment so I can return the visit.
