Wicked and Boo banners

I have been working hard on banners and such for the Glitterfest show and here are two of the banners which are complete. Unfortunately I only own a point and shoot camera and the photos are not as good as I would like...in person they are really charming and have lots of texture.
This first one is the BOO banner. It is sewn onto a gold tassel fringe and is made using illustrations from a vintage children's halloween book. There are felt flowers, glitter, vintage cupcake toppers and more used to embellish it.


I love this image of the child wearing big gloves and a pumpkin head!

You gotta have a tiger costume....
Here's the whole gang:
And some homemade masks are important!

Trick or Treat!


This banner is selling for $25 and each of it's penants is an individual collage.
Next is my WICKED garland. This baby is a witch themed garland using fun vintage images of witches. This garland is sewn onto a black opal bead fringe and decorated with lace, buttons, glitter and more:


Here is a baby witch holding the number #31

And a haunted tree.....


An evil old witch!


A bewitching young witch:



A mezmorizing leather -wearing enchantress:


And some darling little witches creating some Hocus Pocus:


Of course you need a haunted house!


And to finish it all off, a spider priestess:

This banner is selling for $35.
I have had a wickedly fun time creating these....I hope you enjoy them too!
If anyone is interested in buying one, just leave me a comment and I will get right back to you! Have a happy start to your week! karen....

These banners are really cute!

Nope I'm not in the year of color nor in any Halloween swap. I am so busy with doing things I should have done months ago as well as redecorating the childrens' rooms and some decluttering, so I decided not to swap for a while. Hope all is fine with you and your mother. xoxo LiLi

Hey, sorry, looks like I left the exact same observation as my best friend, Beth did! Guess we think a lot alike.
