Halloween Tussie Mussie

Hello Friends!!
Happy Wednesday!!

Hard to believe that October is already here!
We have a new challenge going on at 

Our theme for this challenge is

I decided I wanted to do a Tussie Mussie, but not the traditional round one.  I wanted flat sides.  In here is what I came up with.
It is covered with fabulous goodies from 
First I created my own template, which took me 5 tries to get it to line up...lol.  Craziness is what I say!!
Here is my collage sheet for the cone.
You can find it in my Etsy.

I only used the cone portion for my project, but I did use my 
Vintage Witch Collage sheet too.  Which you can find in my Etsy.
Here is a shot of it from the side.
Here are a couple of close ups.
I used the black netting behind my focal image and a little lower on the cone front.  At the top of the cone's edge I used a layer of Juliet Lace and then Orange Micro gingham.  The lovely bow was done with the Chocolate Seam Binding.  I also used the orange leaves and deep ivory 15mm roses.
The sweet little button and Halloween Baker's Twine are also from Really Reasonable Ribbon :0).  Things that you can't see...but I used are the Tombow Foam Tabs to elevate my focal image from the offsets I made.  I did use the Scor tape to adhere some of my ribbons.  I used my Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue &
Ultra fine Metal Tip to apply glue and glitters to my tussie mussie.
I used  #188 Black Vinyl for the hat, spider, buttons and crow.
# 56 Pumpkin for the first offset dots, and #350 Butterscotch for the dots on her dress.
On the sides of my cones, I went a little more simple.  
I used Juliet lace at the top and a strip of orange variegated ribbon across the center.  Topped that with the micro black gingham, deep ivory 15mm rose and orange leaves.  Pumpkin glitter was used in the polkadots :0)
I used the orange and chocolate seam bindings to add streamers to the sides, and the orange seam binding for my hanger.  I finished off the inside top with the black sheer pleated ribbon!  Yummy!!
Here is a close up of the bottom.
A tiny piece of natural crochet lace on my Trick or Treats sign, black netting,  another Deep Ivory rose and orange leaves finish off the bottom.
