Halloween sneak peeks...

After the girls went to bed Monday night, I wrapped up my Kim K. witch hat and festive goodies for my partner.   I'm participating in Viv's Halloween Swap which involved designing a custom-made witch hat filled with Halloween goodies.

 Lori...don't look if you want to stay surprised.    

My hat started out as a hand-made party hat that was redesigned with a glittery witch's brim.

This is the back-side of the hat.

As you can tell, I have a thing for crepe paper ruffles.  I must have gone through 2 rolls of crepe paper on this hat. Other embellishments include glittery spiders, a darling witch girl graphic and "eek" tag.

I'll be including these other Kim K. treasures, along with a glow-in-the-dark-beaded bracelet and Halloween candles.


It was a lot of fun to participate in this swap and I can't wait to see other people's witch hat designs over the next few weeks.  I promise to share a few other Halloween Kim K. creations with my blogging friends in the very near future.  As I've said earlier, I love giving away my creations as much as I enjoy making them. A no strings-attached Halloween giveaway will be happening sometime next week.  

Halloween hugs!
