Halloween Lanterns - Is it THAT time of year again?

I've been in a Halloween mood.  I am not sure why, but I am ready to see some spooky projects on crafting blogs/boards.  Of course I haven't ordered my kid's Halloween costumes yet, but eh, I'll get around to it.  This morning I decided to do a bit of glass etching on a lantern, spooky style.

One of the hardest things to do is photograph a lantern or a mirror so I apologize for the the pictures.  Also, this is not my best etching work.  There are a few imperfections, and again, I'm seeing this grainy etched surface in a few places.  I am beginning to think that that batch of etching creme I was using was defective in some way.  I am so full of excuses today! No worries though.  It's good enough for display on the porch on Halloween and around the house until then.

Happy Hauntings, October 31st

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Hey, I like it! Very ambitious piece of work! I can't see the imperfections so it looks great to me. But etching is a very unforgiving process so I understand how hard it can be to get the results you are looking for. BTW, how do I add that nifty Reactions line to my's very cool!

  2. Ha! I set it up when I started my blog and haven't been able to figure out how to get back *there* to tweak it since. So I'm no help. I bet Pam would know though. Lol. Thanks for the compliments. It will do, and I'm working with vinyl again so that's a plus.

  3. wow dayna! These turned out awesome!. Where did you get those cool lanterns!

  4. Thansk Pam - Ikea is the place! But I've heard people have picked them up from Lowe's as well.

  5. Nice and scary! Great job!

  6. Great job! I love the way it turned out.

  7. Hauntingly adorable! I am feeling kinda Halloween-ish myself these days. I think it is the leaves that are starting to fall in my yard -- how is that possible already????

  8. This is so awesome! I love the images you used! I've never tried etching cream but this is inspiring me to do so! Love it :)
