Halloween Pillows and Silhouette Savings!
Oct 23, 2012
Sometimes my brother does nice things for me, such as building me a bench out of a headboard, like I've always wanted. All I had to do was buy an old headboard and leave it thoughtfully on his front porch with the explicit instructions to 'BUILD ME A BENCH OUT OF THIS HEADBOARD."
This is what he returned to me:
And here it is after I painted, and attempted to glaze the details.
Pretty cute, huh? (I started glazing it one time at about 1:30 in the morning, when I was home alone, and then I got a little freaked out and started wondering why the heck I was out in the middle of the night painting a bench, and who was watching me, and I scared myself and ran back inside, and so it's still only about halfway glazed).
But that's not the point! The point is, do you like my burlap Halloween pillows? I made them myself, and you can too! My fabulous sponsor, Silhouette, has a bunch of great Halloween bundle deals going on right now, so I've been playing with a few of their heat transfer products and this is what I came up with.
So much fun. I just love that you can use your own fonts with the Silhouette machines. And the bat and the witch shapes were only .99 in the online store! They literally have billions of shapes and graphics in there. Slight overstatement. But there really are tons.
Here is everything I used:
(Also, you need an iron). (Also, I used the Silhouette hook, which is really helpful for getting into the nooks and crannies of the design to pull off the excess).
Here are just a couple of the great bundle deals that are going on now; they truly are an awesome way to save if you were planning to buy a CAMEO, or just wanted to stock up on some supplies.
Sweet, sweet savings! Click HERE to see the rest of Silhouette's Halloween bundle deals on vinyl, cardstock and more.
Don't forget to use the code AFTER at checkout or you will be haunted by three ghosts! Not really! But you won't receive the sale price unless you doooooooooooooo!
