Last year I saw these rick rack trees from A Pumpkin and a Princess and I fell in love, I also never got around to making them. But! I decided to use the same technique with a Halloween spin. Here is some proof that I can make a Halloween decoration without spiders! (Ok technically there is a tiny spider on the witch sign but I didn’t do that!)
I used an old frame I picked up at a garage sale, mod podge, a piece of textured purple card stock for the background, some paper accents from a Halloween stack, black and green jumbo rick rack and my hot glue gun.
I started by using the mod podge to glue the card stock to the glass, I’ve got a huge stack of picture frames from garage sales so I wasn’t worried about not being able to re use this one.
I used a really scientific method to cut the rick rack based on the humps. Enjoy my diagram:
The key to getting the shape right is paying attention to the ends, make sure they go the same way.
The little good witch/bad witch sign was cut off a piece of scrapbook paper and glued on.
Simple, easy and adorable! I love my little Rick Rack Witch Hat (it’s easier to make than it is to say I promise!)
