Bleak Boo-quet!

Here is a boo-quet I made. I used a Styrofoam pumpkin from The Dollar Tree and spray painted it glossy black. Then I sprayed it with Easy Tack and glittered it with MS Black Glitter. I then took brown coffee filters, folded in half twice then inked the edges black. I took a 12" bamboo skewer and inked it black as well. I twisted the bottom of the coffee filter and spread it out to make a flower and attached to the skewer using wire, then poked it into the pumpkin and tied a small ribbon around it and hot glued the skewer into the pumpkin.

Glued a skull into the middle of the middle flower.

Cut out a tag from Echo Park Apothecary Emporium Paper and used Scrappy Mom's Stamps Betwitched stamp set. I used Trendy Twine's Halloween Twine to wrap the skewer and place a bow on it.

 I hope you like this, I enjoyed doing it and will see black glitter for weeks I'm sure! :)

Happy crafting everyone!
