Vintage Halloween Project for Say It With Letters

It's the last day of summer, so sad to say goodbye.  Thankfully, it's a beautiful warm day for once after a long stretch of cool days here in Rochester, NY.

One of the things I used to dread was creating a Halloween project when it still felt like summer, because I never want to rush summer out.  However, this Vintage Halloween Project I made for SIWL makes me so happy.  I had so much fun.  I could make more of this all year long!!!

I used vintage glass glitter which will tarnish over time,
however first I spray painted the letters silver first.
I used vintage book pages and made ruffles behind each letter.
I made a hat for each figure that I cut out.
I stretched out regular batting that you use to stuff pillows to
make fake cobwebs, using a tiny bit of glue to make them willowy.
Prima flowers on pop-dots and Prima lace!!!
Yay vintage!!!!

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your last day of summer.
