Trick or Treat Door Hanger

One of the first things my eyes landed on when I opened the box of goodies from Canvas Corp was the Twinkle Yellow and Valencia Chalkboard Glimmer Mist and the canvas Canvas Minis triangles.  Instant inspiration = candy corn!! 

First, I rounded the three corners with scissors then, using a piece of paper as a mask, I misted the Twinkle Yellow and Valencia.  Here's how it turned out...

Cute, eh?!  There was also a Canvas Shapes rectangle in the box so I thought it might make a cute door hanger. 

The first thing I did to the rectangle was mist it randomly with some Charcoal Chalkboard Glimmer Mist.  Next, I trimmed a piece of the Spooky Diamonds on Ivory patterned paper and laytered the trick or treat tag, fussy cut from the Trick or Treat Sampler on White, and inked the edges.  Then, I grabbed 2 Canvas Corp mini clothes pins in natual and misted them with the Valencia Chalkboard Glimmer Mist and added them to help hold my trick or treat sign in place.  I used a Stampin Up! punch to cut out the Oct. 31 from the Trick or Treat Sampler then misted it first with Valencia Chalkboard then Charcoal Chalkboard Glimmer Mist and adhered it with dimensional foam over the candy corn.  I thought it could use a little bling, so I added some Want2Scrap swirls then finished it off with the Canvas Corp black cord.

Here's a closer view of the candy corn...

I really like how this turned out and can't wait to hang in on our door for Halloween!
