Spooky Halloween with Glue Dots® Adhesives

I'm excited to introduce my first Glue Dots® Adhesives Design Team Dottess Project.  Now that October has come it is time to decorate for Halloween.  I was talking to my grandchildren Saturday night and they were in the middle of getting their house all fun spooky for Halloween.  My H said she wanted to be a Hershey Kiss.  A girl after my own heart!!

I love putting up home decor during the different seasons holidays.  This is actually my first Halloween canvas and it was so much fun seeing just what I could do with my Glue Dots®.  

Here are the different ways I used Glue Dots® Adhesives.



The spider web was made with Glue Dots® Adhesives Continuous Line and covered with Martha Stewart black flock.  I laid down each line of adhesive, rubbed it with my finger then removed the plastic.  Rubbing the adhesive down before removing the plastic assures that the Glue Dots® Adhesives is evenly adhered to the canvas.  I took the black flocking and spread it across the adhesive, lightly pressing it into the Continuous Line.  Tap off all excess.  Because your Glue Dots® Adhesives is not wet you can use a soft brush to remove any flocking that is on the canvas.  


The foil accents around the edges were make with Glue Dots® Adhesives Craft dots by stretching them onto the canvas, rubbing the foil on top of it.  If you wait a day the strength the adhesive will cause it to reshape itself giving the foiled accent a distressed look.  You can go back over it and rub a little more foil onto the adhesive after it "distresses."  I thought is ended up so cool. 




I used Glue Dots® Adhesives Craft dots stretched across the witches hat and broom.  I wrapped the edges of the adhesive underneath so it would leave a smooth edge.  I added the Our Craft Lounge Platinum Sparkly Fluff by pressing it into the adhesive. By using
Glue Dots® Adhesives Craft Dots I got a much thicker look and feel to my fluff. 
 


Glue Dots® Adhesives Pop dots are fast becoming my favorite Glue Dots®.  Instead of just being "sticky" on the top and bottom of the dot Glue Dots® Adhesives Pop Dots are all "sticky" top, bottom and sides.  They are not too thick and I can add one Pop Dot to another to build my height to where I want it. I used the Pop Dots for my signs on the lamp post and on my spider.  

Again, I had such a fantastic time trying new techniques with my Glue Dots® Adhesives.  Now I have a new wall decor to add to my Halloween decorations.  

I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots® design team.
