Halloween Garland

By: Julie Lewis

Julie Lewis
Julie Lewis was destined to be an artist…at least that was what she was told from Kindergarten on. Born outside of Cleveland, Ohio, she was blessed to have been given an incredible art education all through her school years and from her creative and talented parents. Growing up in a world where every day brought some new creative adventure, it was no surprise that she went on to graduate from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a B.F.A. in graphic design. Her professional life included working in many fields from industrial advertising to American Greetings. Most gratifying was working as a designer for the largest craft company, Plaid Enterprises in Georgia where she now resides.She paints and creates felt soft sculptures inspired by said paintings and now sells them through her shop STELLALOLA on Etsy. She is inspired by many things around her…most importantly, a wonderful family, an insanely happy German Shepherd and one stoic Alaskan Malamut.
A fun addition to your Halloween decor.

Instructions

1.      Using flat brush, stroking from bottom to top, paint one ornament Fresh Foliage and one Wicker White. Alternate Pure Orange and Autumn Leaves for pumpkin.

2.      Apply facial features and details with liner brush and desired color(s). Create any dots using handle end of a paintbrush or the liner brush tipped with paint.

3.      On remaining two ornaments, paint stripes with round brush using all colors except Wicker White. When dry, paint Wicker White starbursts with liner brush. Glue 5 gems randomly on each striped ornament.

4.      To create garland, start at center and lightly tie one ornament. Working out from center, attach rest of ornaments approximately 5” apart.


TIP:  Insert a paintbrush handle inside ornaments to hold as you paint.
