Terrifying Trio - on 6"x9" oval blanks

Maybe I should call them the Terrific Trio. They are so cute it makes you want to invite them in for a Trick or Treat snack. They are perfect for households with small children who might be frightened by really scary faces. Hang them in the front window and turn off the lights when the little neighborhood goblins start up the sidewalk. The faces will "glow" brightly, thanks to the use of Glow in the Dark Mod Podge for the complexions of Frankie and the Witch.

The only problem is--the 6"x9" blanks are discontinued. This does not put them out of the running as Halloween projects. When you are at the party store buying costume accessories and decorations, pick up some of the clear plastic plates in the large size. Enlarge the designs following the directions on the Message Board on the right side of the home page and create the designs on the plates. I prefer the scooped ones without the band around the side because it gives you more room for the designs. Then melt a hole in the top with a heated paper clip, ice pick or wood burning tool, and hang them with a orange ribbon or fishing line. You can also make the designs a little smaller as "Clings" and use them to decorate the windows on the front porch. They will be the envy of the neighborhood Mom's group!

  1. These are cute halloween displays. Stained glass looks even better when reflected by light,it is smart to put it on your windows or doors.

  2. It's so cool that you can make these fun stained glass pictures. I think it would be really cool to get into this as a hobby. How did you decide on trying this out? My school is putting in a big stained glass window and I think it would be cool to help on that project. http://www.pnrscreens.ca/en/services.html

  3. Glad that you are interested. However, it is not real staned glass, which involves cutting glass to specific shapes surrounding the pieces wth lead and soldering the lead pieces together. So you probably won't be able to help on the school's project, but you can certainly create your own stained glass motifs by outlining a design with Liquid Lead and filling in the spaces with GG Windw Colors. Go the home page and you will see a lesson on making "Clings". It is great Beginner project. Thanks for your interest.
