Spooky Tag

It's only in the last few years that Halloween has really gained popularity here in Australia, which means I don't have a lot of decorations come October 31st. Each year I've been slowly adding to my collection with a combination of purchased items and a few homemade projects. This year, I made a spooky tag to hang off a fabulous big key I bought somewhere in my travels.


I used the long sentiment from the Witch Starter Kit set, printed on plain card stock and then distressed with paints, water and ink. I separated a length of twine so that it would be thin enough to pass through a needle, then sewed the printed card stock onto a piece of black card... à la Frankenstein's monster.

It isn't really a thing here either. There are some decorating items available in Dollar Type shops but craft items are hard to come by. I love how you did this tag and it goes perfectly with that key - what a find.

Thank you Donna! Thanks also for letting me know about the issue in the store... you were right about the product not being visible. All good now though.
Cheers,
