Monster Mash Bog Hop- Day 2

Welcome to the Monster Mash Blog Hop Day #2

 I was working in the lab, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash, he did the monster mash
It was a graveyard smash!

Let's get this Monster Party started!

I am so glad you joined us today. Here is my project. It is a pumpkin made from an older paperback book. It is very simple to make and it makes a really cute decoration. 

Here are the supplies. 
You will need a paperback book, a pair of scissors and make a simple template from a piece of tag board. 
All you have to do is trace the template with a marker onto the cover. Then hold a few pages together and cut them. Continue to do this until you have completed cutting the entire book. 

Once you have completely cut the book you can decorate it as you would like. I used the Heidi Swap colors. I decided to make it glimmery. I think it came out really cute. I added a small toule bow to the top of the pumpkin.

Well you have come to the end of your SPOOOOOOKY journey. We all hope you have enjoyed yesterday and today as much as we have enjoyed bring all our projects to you. Hopefully something you have seen this weekend will inspire you to get crafty!! Don't forget to check back on Connie's page later this week for the winners of the blog candy!

Have a great and SPOOOKY Sunday!!

Here is our complete line up for day #2 in case you get lost along the way:
