We got an embossed heat tool a few years ago and have barely used it. We have so many craft supplies hidden that sometimes we forget what we have. But thankfully, it hit us to add a little sparkle to our vintage lab charts and glitter seemed too messy.
We’re really patting ourselves on the back with this one, because we made a craft without a trip to Michael’s! Thats a big accomplishment for us!
All our chart images were found online with a quick Google search and printed on cream colored cardstock. Then we embossed some highlights with some bright blue, pink, purple and gold embossing powder.
We turned them into hanging charts with small square dowels that we distressed with gray acrylic paint and hung them with thin twine.
We can’t wait to show you our first Halloween tree tomorrow!

I love the video , especially the fact you wore yellow washing up gloves to decorate your tree!

Honestly it was a lot better than it sounds.
