Halloween Tree Decoration Tutorial

First I want to express my sincere sadness of the passing of Steve Jobs, Co-Founder of Apple.  I've talked so much about the silly iPod the last few weeks and how grateful I am they replaced it for FREE.  I cannot help but think how much this man will be missed by so many.  He was a creative genius and changed our world in computers and electronics. I love Apple products and he has definitely changed my life for the better. 


As I said the other day I would have a tutorial ready for you on how to make the Halloween Tree Decorations. I am so excited that day is TODAY! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to stamp and every year I add a few new decorations to my tree and my Halloween display.  Let me share my Halloween display as well as the tree.

What's fun about this display is the many memories that go along with the items made.  So many of these fun decorations were made sitting with friends or even a class that I have taught. Every year it's a joy to pull out each decoration and put it on the display. What's better is adding more decorations.  My display consists of a Bakers Rack that I change out every season. There is another project on my display I cannot wait to show you. It's a banner that I made with my friend Denise.  We had so much fun creating it.  I'll share much closer pics soon.

Here a closer look at my tree.

You can see many of the decorations I've made over the years. On the video you will see another Holiday Decoration with the same concept only it's a Christmas Ornament.  Here are a few closer pictures for you:

I used the Christmas Lodge stamp set for this decoration. You can find all the products I've used here in my Online Store.  Make sure you check the Clearance Rack.  There are some great holiday items you can get at a GREAT discount. Don't miss it. 

Here is the video and I hope it helps you as you make a few handmade decorations fro yourself.
