Tea Stands for Tuesday - 10/27/15




Tuesday and once more time to join Elizabeth and the
gang for our weekly get together.  This morning I'm drinking water and looking back through some old posts for Halloween ideas.

My creative spirit has been hiding these last weeks so I thought I'd show you something I made quite some time ago.  A decorated candy tin that holds a pair of earrings.











"Dance by the light of the moon"

I made the skull from paper clay using a mold that I've had for ages.  I painted the tin top and added a couple layers of paper.  


I lined the tin container with black velvet and added a pair of earrings that should dance with every step.

I hope you having a great Tuesday - maybe even dancing.

  1. Water is always a good drink. After all, we need it and it's good for us.

    I really enjoyed this project you brought back to show us, and loved the earrings, even though I couldn't or wouldn't wear them. The tin you created to display them in is wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing and inspiring a Halloween project, as well as your water with us for T this Tuesday,

  3. Cool earrings and extra special in your wonderful altered tin.
    Velvet is such a yummy ingredient.
    Water is always my favorite beverage altho now that it is much cooler I am craving warm drinks.

  4. Your altered tin is the perfect holder for those skellie earrings! I don't know if it was planned or an accident, but I smiled when I saw the word "brains" in the paper background. Thought it was clever for a Halloween theme.

    Happy T Day!

  6. What an adorable creation, Darla. How did you like working in paper clay? I've been thinking something like this might be do-able with our GD for Christmas gifts for her to give. Happy Halloween!
