Halloween Subway Art & Glittered Witches’ Hats

This was my guest post for Miss Lovie's Spooky Scary Halloween series.  You will find tons of fun Halloween ideas there!

Happy Monday, my friends!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

I can't believe that this year I have been such a slacker.  I had the best intentions of decorating for Halloween over the weekend.  However, I woke up early Saturday with a nasty bug.  I was in bed all day long... so the Halloween decorations will just have to wait a few more days!

But I do have one little area nicely decorated and ready for Halloween...

Do you remember eighteen25's Christmas subway art and glitter trees from last year?  Well, they inspired me to make my own glitter witch's hats and Halloween subway art!

This sparkling display is brightening up my living room right now!

First, I created this Halloween subway art in Photoshop.

To make your own:

You can download your own 16x20 print here.

I printed it mine at Costco for the cheapest rate I could find.  I threw it in a frame, and I was done!

Piece of cake.

To create the witches' hats, I bought 3 styrofoam cones and 3 wooden circles at Hobby Lobby.

I glittered up each of the cones using a bit of spray adhesive (don't you love this stuff??) I used almost an entire container of glitter for each hat.  I chose to use black, orange, and purple.  I love this color combo!  And who says witches always have to wear black?!

After spray painting the circles black, I used E-6000 to glue the cones to the circles.  Then I mounted each hat to a candlestick holder.  I purchased these at the dollar store.

I added a couple of feather boas for a spooky effect.

I gotta say--I'm loving the sparkles!

Don't you think that even witches love a little bling??? 🙂
