Enter if you dare

Hello creative friends!

and the Halloween fun goes on :-)

I was on a flea market and found a orange bamboo place mat, 
the color had something of Halloween and an idea was born in my head.


How you can make

 an easy eyecatcher for your Halloween project


place mat 

the upper edge can be easily cut with a fine saw 
and for the thin bamboo sticks a pair of scissors is sufficient

 after i have cut the right size, the two lower threads have to be knotted several times

... and now  you can give her a weathered old look
to let the paint peel off you can use sandpaper or a fine saw 

you can paint them, stamp them or even write on them 

'Shock your parents, read a book' :-)

some details

The magic book

I want to share this
I used clear acetate for the broken window pane

Update: Spotlight

#64 Kerstin – Andrea says: This is filled with all sorts of spooktacular textural goodness!  What a treat for the eyes!  And the fact that a place mat inspired this made me all the more impressed.  What an excellent reminder that inspiration can come from anywhere!

Happy crafting!
