Which Witch is Which?

The Halloween Hat Swap that I hosted is wrapping up. I had soooooo much fun with this one! I had the incredibly talented Donna of Under the Red Roof as my partner. Her work is amazing! Visit her blog for a peek at the hat that she made me!!! OMG! Amazing! She is also having a spectacular giveaway that you DO NOT want to miss. 103 sheets of vintage wallpaper!!! Imagine what you can do with that!?!?! Just think of the possibilities.... Sigh....


Here is my little creation for her. I used a paper mache base and decked it out with pretty scrapbooking paper, crepe paper, tulle, a feather boa, flowers, a sparkly spider web, pearly brooch, and of course the sweet little owl...

My hat (and the whole idea of the swap, actually) was inspired by this FANTASTIC hat that I saw at a local shop. Yum!!!

I am really happy with how it turned out... it is much cuter in real life... I promise! I'm not known for taking great photos...LOL. Hope you like it, Donna!!!
