DAY 22- 31 Days of Halloween, Countdown to halloween, Real witches of Halloween

Welcome to Day 22 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN, as well as day 22 of the COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN, and Day 22 of THE REAL WITCHES OF HALLOWEEN.

Today's Halloween funny:

Today's Creation:

once again the main object for this creation I was just in the right shop at the right time, these wooden pumpkins were in a baggie at the same thrift store that I  got that red cedar Plaque the other day, I got all of this plus more one shopping day back in August. Anyway, all 4 pumpkins were only 75 cents...brand new unused wooden ornaments.
 First I gave them one coat of Gesso, then 2 coats of orange paint. Once dry I used my black Staz-on ink and I stamped BOO! with the Headline Alphabet by STAMPIN' UP, the web from Web Wishes, the bat or spider both from Best Fiends, both sets also from STAMPIN' UP. Then on the other side I used a Black SHARPIE and drew on my own Jack-O-Lantern faces. The Hubster bought me tiny screw in eye hooks, which I had a hard tome with, they actually shipped away a bit of wood on two of them, and I had to glue it back on.  These are kind of thin, I am not sure if there was a smaller set at Ace, but, they worked out ok, over all. so there is one on the tops coming out of the stems (that is where I had the issue) and coming out of the bottom. Then I used hemp and orange and green pony beads...I had wanted to use black, but when  I wen to the very old bead container from when my girls were younger and made friendship bracelets etc. there was only 2 black, and 3 of that kind of sparkly charcoal, so I had to go with green. The hubster, liked it, and actually said so when he came home from work and saw it hanging there. (other than me having to ask him how he liked it)
Hope you all like it!
