Beautifully Bewitching Pillows & Ornaments


I was spellbound by these beautiful vintage images of women. So I transformed them into perfectly bewitching pillows and ornaments.



I shared these last Fall, back when I was a baby blogger and had less than 25 followers. I'm celebrating surpassing the 500 follower milestone with a look back at some of my early projects.




Don't you just love that velvety black witch's hat? With the flowers and lace she's both beguiling and slightly sinister.



You can find the full tutorial for making these beguiling beauties by *clicking here.*



These vintage beauty witch ornaments played a starring role in my Halloween decor, and will again this year. {click here to see}

Bliss said...

I'm not sure why but I find this funny! I'm thinking I want to take some photos of my BFF's turn them into faded or just all black and white, and make pillows out of them. Can you see their faces when they come over and they are a Halloween decoration at my house? Might have to explain the witch part though huh?
