UnBOOlievable Blog Hop

Welcome to the UnBOOlievable Blog Hop. 
I want to thank Lisa for hosting. 
If you came across my blog 
wanted to start the hop from the beginning click here 
if you came from Anna's Blog you are at the right place.

This time of year is one of my favorites. 
I love the fall colors.
The Halloween colors are the best. 
Black, Orange, Yellow
think candy corn

I'm taking a class over on Christy Tomlinson's Blog
 she made showed us how to make these
little trees she saw on Pinterest.
so, I just had to make them too.
I made this cute little scene 
with some bottle christmas trees

I had these christmas trees from last year 
that I didn't use and
 I bleached them with 
equal part bleach and water

I soaked them in the solution for about 5-8 mins

This is what happens when you leave
 them in there to long, LOL...
I left that one tree in the solution
 for about an hour...I got sidetracked!

I cut the bats from the new Tim Holtz 

I glues two onto a thin wire and
 wrapped it around the tree.
I think it looks so cute.

I sprayed the trees with some glimmer mist. 
I started at the bottom with the yellow then 
I covered the yellow and the tip of the tree with 
some paper towels and hit it with the orange mist

The bottom is a round shaped wood piece 
that I got at Michael's. I glued the trees to it,
painted the base black and then 
covered it with german glass glitter.

I hope you all have a great Halloween!
