I Love to Create – Wee Witch Shrine

I have had this little wooden Crafty Chica shrine sitting on my shelf for quite some time. From time to time I would glance over at the wooden frame thinking one day the perfect project would come to me and today it did. I am currently seeing the world through orange and black colored glasses with Halloween just around the corner so today when I looked at the little shrine I saw the silhouette of a haunted house. My friend Vickie Howell had just used Tallulah as a model for her PBS article so I thought for I Love to Create I would create my own little Wee Witch Shrine.

Liquid Fusion Glue
Crafty Chica Little Paint Pack
Decorative Ribbon & Trim
Hambly Home Decor Overlay
Aleene’s Glue Gun
Paint Brush
Googly Eyes
Crafty Chica Wood Frame
Extra Embellishments

First things first I needed to paint my shrine. I used my Crafty Chica paint pack and mixed colors when I had to like for instance to get orange. I used a trick Kathy Cano Murillo herself taught me on an episode of Craft Lab to achieve the polka dotted legs. Dip the end of your paintbrush into the paint and use it to make dots.

Using various glues I attached rickrack and ribbon to my shrine. I also traced a Hambly Overlay into the shape of my shrine and cut out with scissors. I brushed a thin layer of Liquid Fusion glue onto the painted shrine and attached the overlay.

Using my glue I added a few little last minute embellishments to the shrine like vintage plastic flowers, googly eyes and a witch sitting on a crescent moon cabochon. All that was left to do was frame my picture and set the shrine on a shelf. Buddha is borrowing Tallulah’s witch hat until Halloween.

    Ok, since I took your birth announcement picture AND the cutest witch picture ever in the history of the word, I should totally be your official family photographer! 😉

    Man, I wish I had another Crafty Chica shrine–I need to make one of those for my kiddos. Love it!

    First of all, the books behind your shrine perfect the idea. Can you imagine if there were a stack of encyclopedias there? It would have given a whole different look, and taken the whimsy out of the craft!

    I was just given a really hideous frame and I wanted to dump it or hide it. This will breathe new life into it, I think.
