Evil Fairy Wand

Tonight I bring to you what ended up being a family project, my daughter's Evil Fairy Wand.  My oldest daughter is dressing up as an Evil Fairy for Halloween this year and every fairy has to have a wand. Well since she is an Evil Fairy her wand needed to represent that too.

The scull is Styrofoam and I bought it last year on clearance at Walmart, in fact I bought 2 with no idea in mind as to what I was going to do with them. My mom found this fantastic lower arm with a hand attached to it and a bag of (plastic) bones, I believe 50% off at Savers. My oldest daughter had the gems in her craft stash. I had the tulle and ribbon in my stash.

So it went like this: my husband attached a bone from the bag of bones to the lower arm and attached the scull to the hand. He used hot glue and floral wire, then some craft paint to make it all look cohesive. Then we chose the gems for the scull and glued them into place. Lastly I made a head band for the scull with the tulle and ribbon.

Here is a close up:

Here's the can see the scull resting on the hand:

It now rests by the front door until Halloween night, when my Evil Fairy can take flight.

Happy Halloween 3-D Witches Hat Decor

Halloween is my favorite holiday, unfortunately my creative juices just haven't been flowing. Lots of family and health stuff weighing heavy on me. I did muster up some juice with my 3 year old daughter to create this 3-D Witches Hat Décor.

I used  the leftover half of the paper mache hat from last years Witches Wreath. First we painted it with Neon Green craft paint and before it dried we sprinkled on some Martha Stewart Peridot Glitter. I then adhered the webbed ribbon around the hat and then hot glued the feathers and green spider. I also adhered some black tulle to the bottom of the hat. Finally I found the perfect Halloween paper to be the background for my hat and attached the hat to it. Lastly I just popped it in a shadow box display but without the glass and tada!

Here is a view from the side:

I am very happy with the way it turned out and my daughter was super excited that we made it her favorite!

Plus, it looks good with the green I already have in my kitchen.
