I always love Autumn. It's the beginning of the holiday season, and the heat of summer finally gives way to the cool, crisp breezes that shake the leaves from the trees. Even though I can't experience the season, we always love celebrating the holiday here in South Florida! Halloween has to be one of the most fun holidays to create projects for! Not to mention all of the lovely treats to make, and the costumes? I loved putting together this small canvas to decorate our home for the season!

To create this canvas, start by first covering your 8x10 canvas with gesso.
To shape the corners, clip in with a scissors from the edge of the paper, almost to the edge of the canvas, but not quite. Fold one corner inside, and overlap the other corner outside. Secure with your favorite liquid adhesive. Allow to dry for a bit before embellishing.
Layer the chipboard hat over top of the same hat printed on the transparency. Embellish with two layered flowers glued together, and a small button added to the middle.
To create the broomstick: Clip a filter embellishment halfway across and accordion fold. Dab a small amount of liquid adhesive to the metal part of the paintbrush, and wrap the filter embellishment around. Tie a bow around with black ric rac.
Adhere broomstick to the canvas. Add the haunted sticker mounted on foam dots, and chipboard star with button in the bottom corner.
Layer the glittercuts and diamond rub-on in the upper left corner and add your letters.
There are so many fun elements in this collection that it would be so easy to create a canvas of your own design as well! Enjoy creating for the holiday!
