Today I've created a door hanger for Halloween using the Crafter's Workshop Summer 6×6 Template and 6×6 Mini Chevron Template, Smooch Accent Ink, Glitter, and Smooch Spritz from Clearsnap, and a Door Hanger from Magisitical Memories.

First I laid the Mini Chevrons Template on a wdie pruple ribbon and sprayed it with Smooch Spritz in Silver Foil. This put a cool, spooky pattern on the ribbon! I moved the template down and did 6″ sections of the ribbon at one time. Since Smooch Spritz dries super fast, I could immediately tie the ribbon into a large bow.

I painted the Door Hanger with a mix of cream, white, and black paint. Then I laid the Summer template onto the Door Hanger and sprayed it with Smooch Spritz in Silver Foil to get an out line of Summer. I then painted the face with cream paint and lips with Smooch Accent Ink in Siren. I then laid the Summer template back onto the image and painted over it with black, to make the outline of Summer stand out. I added white accents to her eyes with a Uni-Ball Signo pen. 

I then added the letter stickers. I painted the tops of the the white American Crafts Foam letters with Glue Gloss and then sprinkled on some Clearsnap Glitter in purple. I added the bow with hot glue and voila – a spooky door hanger!
