Mixed Media Halloween Medallion by Beth Watson


Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, with all of the candy and crafts – where could you go wrong?

I like to think out of the box when it comes to decorating my door and medallions are very trendy right now, so I created this over-sized medallion to take the place of a traditional wreath!

Now, on to my project!

Measure and cut with scalloped pinking shears a 12″ round circle from green patterned scrapbook paper.  Distress the edges with Tombow Dual Brush Pen #158 Dark Olive.  Measure and cut two 5″ wide by 12″ long rectangles from polka dot patterned scrapbook paper, fan fold and attach ends with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.  Gather fold tube in your hand, then push downward to create a rosette.  Attach rosette to 2″ chipboard circle with Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue.  Place heavy object on rosette until glue is set.  Once dry, distress rosette with Tombow Dual Brush Pen #933 Orange.

Measure and cut two pieces of 16″ by 16″ black tulle, tie in a knot, then fan out into a circle.  Attach tulle to green paper circle, then attach rosette to tulle with Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue.  Place heavy object on rosette sandwich until glue is set.

Measure and cut an 8″ circle from yellow patterned scrapbook paper to create a moon.  Distress edges with Tombow Dual Brush Pen #025 Light Orange.  Attach to rosette with Tombow Power Tabs.  Attach vintage owl cut out to yellow moon with two layers of Tombow Foam Tape to create dimension.

Create two medallion tails from orange gingham scrapbook paper cut to 12″ by 4″ and fish tailed at the bottoms.  Run a line of Tombow Xtreme Adhesive down both sides of each tail.  On a scrap piece of paper, sprinkle black glitter on top, pat down gently with your fingers, shake off excess and place back in container. Attach paper “ribbons and words” to center of medallion tails with Tombow Extreme Adhesive.
