I adore Halloween. I love creepy, kooky and ooky things. Old, grimy, scuffed and icky sticky things are my favourite. And so, here's a wee horrific project created with Petaloo goodies for Halloween.
The base is a book box that are fairly easy to find this time of year in most craft supply stores. I've painted it black and green with a bit of cracklish aging.
These DIY burlap flowers have been distressed slightly with some murky water. If you work in washes, allowing to dry between layers, you can a achieve a really great stained look. They look great next to a little cheesecloth that has been stained and stretched.
Add some bugs and Darjeeling leaves and blossoms and your all set to store some spooky supplies in your embellished Spell Box!
