Spooky crafts from the past!!!

This month Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team is sharing new and old creations for Halloween/Fall using Eileen's dies!

Today I have two from the past, and rather than repeat my tutorials, I'm just posting photos with links to my prior posts!

I die cut her Cup Cake Stand and turned it into a spooky apothecary table from a witches laboratory for Halloween!   I presently have this cute decoration on a side table in my living room!  It measures 3 1/2"h x 3 1/2" w.  I posted this first almost exactly 1 year ago!  
See supplies listed below.  You will find all the details here.
Here are all the pieces cut from the die.  I didn't end up using the banner piece.

I made my second project in August of 2016 using Eileen's then newly released Twist & Style Tool to create the twisted wire to hold my flying bat and dangling skeleton hand on my potions bottle!

Here's the Twist & Style Tool - with the wire wrapped around it just before twisting!
 I made 3 pieces with 3 different charms on the ends.
You'll find more photos and details for this project on my post here.  Supplies are listed below.
So please check out Eileen's blog all this month for some wonderful Halloween/Fall Inspiration using her Sizzx dies!

I remember the spooky apothecary table you posted last year, Julia! This is so cool! It takes time to make each item and put them together, but you can enjoy the table every year. I love your 3D projects!

I was just about to protest that I was sure I'd commented here, and then I read it properly to see that yes, of course I was right to think I remembered that fantastic Cake Stand... it's just from longer ago than I could have imagined. Where does time go to? Sorry to have missed so many great posts... but I'm glad I've had a bit of catch up time, and I hope to get back in the swing of things a bit over the winter.
