Today I was working on one of my larger halloween trees. I painted a large wooden box that measures 8 x 8 x 7 inches. I base coated the box with black. I painted a night scene with saltbox houses and a pumpkin garden. In the background is the moon and the swirling Milky Way. The Milky Way is sprinkled with a touch of glitter to give it a more dramatic effect. This is a Terrye French design. Inside the box is a 24 inch tree with a string of 50 clear lights and a maple leaf garland. On the tree are hand painted wooden pumpkins that have a touch of glitter, cats, and witch hats. In the middle of the tree is a paper mache Jack O Lantern with a long black hat. There is a ghost, a cat face, a pumpkin face, two small round Jack O Lantern pumpkins, and a large round pumpkin with a rusty leaf. Scattered around the tree are frosted and shiny orange and black glass balls. Towards the top of the tree is a rusty clip on tea light holder with a burgundy tea light and a small wooden sign that says Pumpkins. At the very top of the tree is a rusty star and a pumpkin fabric bow. The entire tree measures 30 inches tall. This would be stunning as a centerpiece on your table or a great eye catching decoration for your entry way. I will be listing it on ebay today. Thanks for stopping by!!!!
Happy Memorial Day!
