Giant Skull Tag - Chunky Charm Dangle on Tim Holtz Lantern Die - - Handmade Witch Wand

Been having some fun on some recent Halloween projects and thought I'd post them to share.  For a chunky charm dangle swap with creative presentation, here's the Tim Holtz Lantern all gummed up and the dangle.
the light is just a self-lit tea light for Halloween Jack-o'-Lanterns
 Alcohol inks and patina on the "windows" - inside is part of the Tim Holtz graveyard die and the hand off a cheap skeleton.

The next two projects were challenges from The Craft Hole, a FB crafting group

Trash to Treasure Challenge - took a bent metal clothes hanger and made a wand! Transformed with acrylic glue, alcohol inks, paint, resin, beads and findings
The one below was a challenged called The Skull vs The Craft Hole, a variety of stamped images had to be used.  So I decided to take a Halloween Steampunk twist :) - the size of the tag is a 5"x7"
