the moon laughs and whispers,

1. Paint wood door hanger with black acrylic paint and let dry. Lightly coat with matte finish clear acrylic spray to seal.

3. Create a 3” scalloped circle accent to be the background for the paper pumpkin.
4. Apply a small square of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam near the bottom left of the door hanger. Attach the scalloped circle here.

5. Punch 14 to 16 – 2” circles from orange pattern paper. I alternated 2 patterns. Fold them in half with the pattern you wish to see on the inside of the fold. Using the High Tac Pro+ Adhesive, adhere the pieces together to begin creating the 3 dimensional sphere. The more circles you use the more full the pumpkin will look.
6. Once the half sphere is complete, apply Extreme Adhesive Squares to the back and press onto the scalloped circle.
7. Create the cone hat from a wedge cut from a 4” circle. Form a cone from this and adhere the edges using Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares. Embellish the top of the hat with silver pipe cleaner, a hemp bow, a button and clear gem. Use the Ribbon Adhesive around the base of the hat and wrap a small piece of silver pipe cleaner around this. Attach the hat to the top of the pumpkin using more Extreme Adhesive Squares and Micro Squares.

8. Make a mini banner using triangle punches, hemp and alpha stickers popped up with U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam. Fold the top straight edges of the triangles over and secure onto the hemp with Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares. Tie knots at the ends and secure to the door hanger with Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares just under each knot.

9. Tie several strips of black tool to the top left of the door hanger and trim as needed. Attach the “fun” cardstock element to the center of the bow with an Extreme Adhesive Square. Use an Extreme Micro Adhesive Square to secure the “happy haunting” cardstock element as well.
10. Adhere the ghost punch and the “Spooky Style” cardstock element using U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam.
11. Create a jack-o-lantern face from black cardstock. Touch the edges with white ink and attach to the pumpkin with Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares. Add gems to the eyes. Tie a ribbon bow and secure it under the pumpkin’s face again with an Extreme Micro Adhesive Square.

12. Apply a crackle liquid finish to the BOO alpha stickers and let dry flat. Add any additional gems, accents or finishes to complete the door hanger. Enjoy!

Suggestion: If you like to “BOO” your neighbors or friends, create a paper pocket to hold treats that you can adhere to the back of the door hanger.
