Trick or Treat

Posted by Stacy Cohen

Here’s a layout featuring my little cheerleaders on Halloween last year. As the girls’ candy-filled pumpkins got heavier and heavier while trick-or-treating, my husband and I ended up holding their pom-poms for them. Isn’t that the way it always happens . . . they get the candy and the parents get stuck holding the pom-poms?

I made the fabric rosettes and colored the white muslin fabric with Shimmerz:
To make these fabric rosettes, I first cut long strips of white muslin fabric. I wanted the edges to be smooth edges without any loose threads, I folded both edges (lengthwise) in towards the center of the strip, and then I adhered the fabric in place with fabric glue (Fabri-tac). Starting at one end of the fabric strip, I rolled the fabric around itself to create a spiral, twisting and turning the fabric strip as I went along. I added a dab of Fabri-Tac every so often to keep the fabric in place. Once finished, I colored the rosettes with Licorice Shimmerz Spritz and Espresso Shimmerz paint.

I hope your Halloween is filled with lots of treats (but no tricks!).
