Spooky Blingy Christmas!

Wow, what a title, right? Well, it's appropriate for the project I have to show you tonight! I'm entering this fun wall hanging in the Simon Says Sparkle & Bling! challenge and the Wee Memories Hootin' Halloween challenge!


Well, before I show you my fabulous piece of artwork, let me tell you the story of how it came to be!

Once upon a time, I made a new friend. We had fun getting together to talk for visiting teaching while we were in the single's ward. Then, I got left the single's ward and got married. Seven years later, my awesome friend and I reconnected on Facebook and decided that we needed to craft together! We wasted no time, and got together TODAY! And we decided to make cute wall hangings for the sisters we NOW visit!

It was sooooooooooo fun! We are gonna make this a regular thing! Anywho, we wanted to make a Halloween wall hanging, but I thought it would be cool to make a wall hanging that was reversible for Christmas! Thus, our craft was born! With my basement empire and her Cricket Expression, we cranked out these beauties!

Here's the BOO side for Halloween~

Okay, I admit. The ones we made were less blingy. But I cannot resist a good detail or two here or there!!! :) Unfortunately, my right pointer finger and my left thumb got a little bit burned...because I don't know about hot glue gun safety, apparently.

BUT, despite my injury, I hope you're inspired by these challenges and my little craft to create something sparkly today! Happy blinging!!! :)
