If The Hat Fits!

Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Either way this hat has all of the glittery goodness, and just a touch of scary spookiness to fit the bill! I love Halloween, and decorating the house with fun macabre displays! I originally made this pointed chapeau for our Halloween corner st Stampcation, it now adorns a spot on a bookshelf next to all of our "horror" fiction. To be honest I find the daily news a lot scarier than anything I have read....but I digress...back to the witches hat!  The hat itself is paper mache' it was painted black and coated {every inch of it} in black fine glitter...oh yeah its sparkly!!!! The center oval is encrusted with mica flakes, and has a gorgeous bat  image. That stamp is from the Stampin' Up! set from the crypt.

The fringe I picked it up at my local party store and have it in almost every color! I LOVE using it on packages and .........well anything I can glue it too! {tell my dog not to stand still for too long} ...*insert evil witch cackle here!*


I have decided that I would kick off my October reading with a witchy story. even though it has been out for a long time, I'm just now getting around to it! What are your reading right now?
