Hand Painted Witch Hats




The Witch Is In!!! I have been painting witch hats today. My family said I should paint one for myself !! Aren't they funny!!  NOT. I base coated the hat with black and painted a design from Terrye French's book Thyme To Paint. There is a crow pie, stacked pumpkin pull toy, a scarecrow face, horn of plenty, and a pumpkin. On the rim of the hat I painted a green vine with orange berries. I also painted some stars at the top of the hat. This is a great prim Fall decoration. You could used it as a centerpiece on your table. Place some pumpkins around it with some Autumn leaves. Or you could just set it on a shelf. They are listed on Ebay for $26.50 each. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!!

  7. Oh, Denise, these hats are exquisite. I just can't get over the beautiful talent you have. I wanted to paint in the primitive or folk art style years ago, like your Witch's Hat and the Saltbox banner at the top of your blog. I'm not sure which type those are, but I just love the soft blurred colors and shading/highlighting. I never seemed to develop the technique unfortunately. Seeing your work makes me want to try all over again, but I know I'll never get to your level!
