Idea No. 1 – Pumpkin Project
For this first idea, I’ll be creating a small pumpkin décor piece that will be embellished with the Halloween Damask pattern.
To begin, use the Halloween Damask transfer and Black Velvet Chalkology Paste to add the pattern to the surface of the pumpkin cutout.
Be sure to cover the surface of the pumpkin body, leaving the stem unchalked.
Immediately remove the transfer and let dry.
Next, use the color Anchor to paint over the area you just added the pattern to.
You can see below how you can see the raised texture of the pattern through the paint.
For the stem, add gliding wax in Gold.
Next, use the gel color Tobacco Road to stain the surface of a wood block.
Then, water down some of the color Terracotta to create a wash.
Apply the wash you just created over the stain to give it more of an orange tone.
While that dries, you’ll need to cut the wood grain transfer from the Farmhouse Patterns transfer.
Then apply the transfer and use Black Chalkology Paste to add the pattern to the wood block.
See how that adds a little spooky detail to the piece!
I also used some of the color Anchor to paint the sides of the wood block to make it feel more finished.
Once everything is dry, glue the pumpkin cutout to the center of the wood block.
I also added a clear gloss finish to the stem to keep the gilding wax in place.
And this is the finished product. It’s the perfect subtle Halloween accent!
Idea No. 2 – Door Hanger Project
For this project, I began by staining a round door hanger blank with Tobacco Road Gel Stain.
Then I used the Hocus Pocus Broom Co. Transfer to add some fun accents to the top half of the piece.
I used Black paste and my artist tools to add the surrounding elements including the bird, “witches wanted” and “broom co.” accents.
Then I used white paste for the words “Hocus Pocus”.
You can get a better look at exactly what parts of the transfer I used below.
Once the top portion was done, I taped off the bottom and painted the entire surface with the color Whitecap.
This part will require two coats of paint.
Once finished, I removed the tape to prep for the Halloween Damask.
Then I applied the damask transfer and added a piece of painter’s tape across the top. This will give me room to add a line accent once I’m finished with the damask.
Next I added the damask pattern with black paste.
Once dry, I grabbed the Hocus Pocus transfer and used the line at the bottom to add that accent to the top of the damask portion that I taped off earlier.
Once everything was dry I added a string for hanging and displayed the final look.
Idea No. 3 – Candy Corn Project
Finally, you can see here how I added the Halloween Damask pattern to these candy corn décor pieces. They were cute as-in, but the extra pop of embellishment makes them extra unique!
