Altered Witches Hat - I Am Roses "A Haunting We Will Go" BLOG HOP!


Hi everyone and welcome to the I Am RosesA Haunting We Will Go” Blog Hop. If you came my way via the I Am Roses blog, you are in the right place!

We're excited that you're joining us for today's blog hop and we can't wait to share with you our "spooktacular" projects using I Am Roses products! AND, you guessed it! We will be randomly selecting a blog winner from one of the designers blogs, so be sure to comment along the way to enter your chance to win some I Am Roses products!

So let's get crackin'... ♥

For my project, I created this fun altered Witch's Hat. I challenged myself NOT to use any design paper and to make the project black and gothic. :-) Well, I caved a little because I used a mini note card with sentiment from Graphic 45's Happy Haunting paper collection... but, I "think" I achieved the black and gothic look with this hat. hehe!  First, here are some pictures...




For a fun little share, my 8-yr old son Dylan thought it would be hilarious to try on the altered witch's hat... and he gave me a little "wicked" smile while he was at it... check him out!! LOL!


Here's a video tutorial "beginning to end" showing how I created this altered witch's hat:
