Practical Scrappers Halloween Pinspiration

Today over at Practical Scrappers the scrappers are exploring the loads of Halloween Pinspiration to be found at one of my favorite hangouts, Pinterest! I chose this adorable project pin by Holly over at Ribbons and Glue. I already shared this Christmas version of a clothespin wreath this week, but it was so much fun to make I couldn't resist whipping out a Halloween version. 
I used some bold retired CTMH Halloween papers to cover each clothespin, which I painted with multiple coats of Folk Art Pure Orange Outdoor and Pumpkin Orange Extreme Glitter acrylic paints. Some of the pins I covered with some American Crafts washi I scored at Target. I swirled up some Black striped grosgrain flowers and built a bow,mixing in some orange polka dot craft ribbon. I covered some inexpensive black plastic spiders with glow in the dark glitter (!) and topped them off with wiggly eyes. 

I finished with something I never could've imagined. I despise how when you use hot glue gun there's little strands of glue stuff all over. I usually pick off every single bit. then I pick at it more. Hot glue is not always my friend...but for this project I went to town stringing bits of hot glue all over my pretty bow and sparkly Artbooking wreath sentiment. Ah, spiderwebs!

I'm linking this project up at the fabulous Paper Issues Halloween Hootenanny and the Dynamic Duos Color Challenge! I hope you'll pop over to Practical Scrappers and check out the all the spooky fun!
