october artful bag challenge

Happy wonderful magical October!

My most favorite month of all. I just hope it doesn't go by too fast.

For this month's Artful Bag Challenge Alter It theme I decided to go with the obvious.

I grabbed a little plastic cauldron from my too large collection.

Primed it with Gesso.

Then gave it a rusty pewter look with paint.

I added black crepe paper ruffles around the top edge and imagined it to be a fancy woodland fairy witch bag for a tea party under a Halloween moon!

A little tulle, moss and a glittery owl.

Velvet flowers, autumn leaves, glass fairie berries and a few magical items to go inside.

I'm ready  for our Witches Tea Party!

Remember our theme this month is to alter an item and make it into a bag. You can have fun with a Halloween theme if you like and use anything from cauldrons to tick-or-treat bags. Or you can choose something different all together but have fun with whatever you decide to alter.

Have a boo-tiful, magical, bewitching month!

I'll be back with the winner of my Practical Magic party giveaway.
