Halloween Tree

This is the third year I have made a Halloween Tree. My husband cuts some small branches from a bush in our yard and I create my Halloween ornaments. It's a lot of fun. Halloween is my favorite holiday and I guess the kid in me is alive and well.

 I looks a little spindly but that's the way I picture a Halloween tree. The Jack-O-Lantern is an antique; over 60 years old. When I was a little girl I had one like this one. I would carry it with me for Trick or Treating. Looking at the face, I wonder how the candy stayed in the container. I actually have memories of Trick or Treating when I was 5 years old. It was a cold, windy night but that didn't stop me from going out with my mom and dad and little brother.  Fun memories.

This year I used Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White and Summer Starfruit card stock and the new Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper. Toil & Trouble and Halloween Hello are the stamps sets I used both from the Holiday Catalog. I added Basic Rhinestones, and Champagne Glimmer Paper Stars to each ornament. For interest, I used Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie 1/8 inch Taffeta Ribbon. 
Punches used:
2 1/2" Circle, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, Scallop Oval, Owl Builder (for the ghosts), Label Bracket Punches.
