DCWV "Bewitched" Lighted Wreath!

For my Stampendous, "Pumpkin Fence" card post, please go to:
HERE!


Then please return and see more SCARY, SPOOKY, and FUN projects!

My resolution for Fall
(Yes, I am declaring September 1st to be be my "Fall Resolution Day"!)
is to embrace Halloween and enjoy it rather than cringe every time that dad-gum doorbell rings for the upteenth time!

So, I made this to cheer me up!
I used the "Bewitched" Stack from DCWV, and my "Heritage" Cricut cartridge to die cut the house and the gate.  A sheet of vellum was attached to the back of the windows, and three battery-operated tea-lights were glued to the wreath branches where they would shine best through the windows!
The "fringe" around the banners were made with the grass border punch from Fiskars.


I will hereby promise to hang it on my front door on/or before 
October 31st for all to see.


The bestest part? It lights up to appear to have flickering tiny lamps on in the little house...


It looks soooo cool from the sidewalk out front!  It won't have near the fear factor that the hog's head with a butcher knife stuck in it did the year I really went all out, but it embraces the holiday.

I'm just hoping we have cooler weather soon.
These 114-115 degree days are killing me!
Halloween will be welcome relief!

Paper;  DCWV, "Bewitched" Stack
Vellum; Chart-pak (Michael's)
