Halloween Daisy Bouquet ~ Crafty Secrets

Good Morning!
I've got a fun project to show you today using the new double sided Halloween Greetings Creative Scraps by Crafty Secrets.


I made this tin flower bouquet out of little tart tins I've picked up at flea markets here and there.
They can be old and dingy or rusty, it doesn't matter, the Copic markers color them right up, so pretty!
I punched these cute images from the Halloween Greetings Creative Scraps with my 1 3/8" circle punch and glued them in the centers. I put some Amuse clear stickers over the image to protect them and give them some shine. I colored the lollipop sticks and a taller bambo skewer with a Copic marker and I glued the sticks on the back of the flowers with E6000.
I tied some olive organdy ribbon around the sticks to look like leaves.


These are the Copic markers I used. I got the cute terracotta pot on clearence at a gift shop after Halloween last year, I added some black pom pom trim around the top.

Here are a few of the tins. You could also use the bigger Jello tins or the tiny candy tins. These would make super cute fridge magnets with pictures of your kids or family, used on altered projects, or make ornaments like I did here. I used tin snips to cut each flute and flattened them out to make the daisy.

See that old door hinge in the background? I got that at an antique store in Leslie, AR. last Saturday. I had to have it, the detail is just gorgeous. It has a corner broke off, so I got it for cheap. I didn't care, I won't be using it for anything other than to look at {:) I ones that weren't broke were $40 and $45 each.....Holy Smokes! I guess is would be soooo worth it if you had an old victorian house to decorate though!

I hope you have a great day, thanks for checking in on me!
