Fall Crafting---Martha Stewart Style

My crafty friends are at it again and we had so much fun today!  This month our hostess, Jennifer, found an easyMartha Stewart Video on creating temporary cobwebs on glassware. One of the tassel's made at last October craft day is part of the mantle decoration at Jenn's house.
She also has cute framed pictures of black cats, a spooky building and this boiling cauldron.  Easy, but super cute!

 You may remember Jenn's cake decorating skills from blogs past.  This time she made these tasty decorated sugar cookies for us.....YUMMMMMMMM.
We used cobweb stencils and taped them to the side of the glass ware,  then we painted or used paint pens to go over the lines of the webs.  This made the paint on the side that didn't come in contact with food and it was safe to use.  IF you wanted the cobweb to be permanent, you could use Porcelain Paint and then bake to make it permanent.  We opted for the wash off method.   
 And here we are with our finished products. 
 A quick look at the cute mantle decorations!
 Oh, and did I mention we got to make personal pizza's for lunch.  What's a craft day without food.......??
 And when I got home from Craft sweet cat Riley was basking in a little ray of sunshine she had found.....Too Cute! 
Happy Fall Ya'll!!!
