Here's a close up of the Beistle Witch -
I didn't use glass over her as she's a bit too large for the 8 1/2 x 11 frame but that just shows off her colors and character better, and since she's adhered with foam dots, she looks like she is flying out of the frame.
Right above the witch is a light switch. Ugh! Why do builders place light switches and thermostats in the most inconvenient places? Can't they place it next to the door frame instead of 2 feet over? Things that make you go hmmm.....
But that's ok, because I covered it up!!! We have a membership to Birch Box and I simply glued the bottom of one of the boxes to a 4 x 6 frame (after I had placed the print in it) and covered the box with ribbon. Two straight pins are all that was needed to keep it in place over the light switches.
The adorable Happy Halloween print came from Artfully Musing.
Here is the vignette with the light switch showing -
And without the switch - Much better don't you think?
On the other side of the tree are two Beistle reproductions that I printed and framed.
I printed both on cardstock and then affixed the print to a piece of black cardstock before cutting them out. The owl got a sparkly moon set behind him.
The tissue paper fan with the jack-o-lantern came from Dollar Tree and I think it must have been last year's stock, since I only paid .25 for it. It looks perfect with a pennant banner and a paper straw and pom pom garland.
I've always had a thing for stained glass candle holders and found these two about 10 years ago. I glued one onto a glass candlestick with E600 to give him some height. They are the perfect vintage accent along with my paper mache cat that my Mom gave to me a couple of years ago. It came from Hobby Lobby and they have them again this year in case you are looking for one.
I found this candle holder at our local thrift shop and gave it a little height with a home made pedestal. The owl came from Target a couple of years ago and gets a lift from a couple of glass tea light holders glued together with E6000. The holders were painted black after they were glued together and a fan of scrapbook paper added on top before the owl was glued on to it.
I know it's early still, but I'm so glad we have this up because I want to enjoy it as long as I possibly can! We will probably be out of town for Thanksgiving this year, so this will probably be swapped out in November for a Christmas Tree. I'm kind of looking forward to being able to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving!
I hope you are enjoying your Labor Day Weekend! Have a great one with as little labor as possible!
