Countdown to Halloween

Poison at the ready! One more day until the spooks coming knocking, claiming "trick or treat, give me something good to  eat." 

To make the sparkly stars, I came up with a technique modified from one I learned at Convention this summer. 

Supplies: tomboy green glue, dazzling diamonds glitter, blender pen

Squirt a small amount of glue into a container (I use an empty embellishment container) add a pinch of glitter and apply  with the blender pen. 

Because the green glue is thicker you get chunky looking stars. 

Alternate (learned at Convention): glitter glue and a blender pen or aqua painter. You can get very tiny sparkles with this technique.

And yes I fussy cut the bottles! I am not a fan of fussy cutting but I will sacrifice for the cause. 

I am going as the Frightening Neighbor Lady tomorrow. Not fussing with a costume this year. 

Happy haunting, Sandy
