I have been keeping a secret.

A while ago, I saw an invitation to contribute a project to Creating Vintage Charm magazine for their fall issue.  With a menagerie of tart tins, crochet and glitter, I decided to cast a spell for tutorial on how to create a vintage inspired Halloween ornament and submit it to the magazine.

I am so excited to say they decided to publish it!
It is such an honor to have the opportunity to contribute to this beautiful publication.

The stern lady image was found on The Graphics Fairy blog.

For a simple Halloween tree, I gathered some branches from our back yard and nestled them in an ironstone pitcher with some champagne tulle.  I think I may utilize this tree again for Thanksgiving.

Please check out Creating Vintage Charm's beautiful publication and all of the inspiring artists and designers within HERE

Wishing you a magical fall season ~ xo's ~ Heidi
