Dottess Post - Halloween Window for Glue Dots

 Hello Everyone! Here's my post for Glue Dots. This is an old antique barn window that I cleaned up. The people that own a barn near my property gave me 40 antique windows! I couldn't believe it, so this is what I did with one of them. The green on the frame was original and I liked it so I just gave it a wash with some watered down black paint and I added the drippage at the top too. I cut out the canvas from an 11x14 framed canvas. I used glimmer mist to get the colors I wanted. The flowers are all attached with Glue Dots Craft. The chipboard banner was glimmer misted and attached with Glue Dots Pop Up Dots as well as the sparkly spiders and the skeleton. I used Glue Dots Craft Dots to adhere the canvas to the glass and it worked great! I used the Glue Dots Lines to stick the felt Halloween on the canvas as well as the spider web at the bottom to the sides of the window. I used the Glue Dots Mini Dots to keep the spider web in place.

 The Glue Dots kept everything well adhered to the canvas even with the glimmer mist on there. I love how they keep all the flowers stuck together. Whether they are felt, paper, silk, velvet it doesn't matter. They are well attached to each other and to the project.

 Here's a picture of it in the window so you can see how the glass shows through.
 Here it is on my mantle in my living room.
Even the hubs likes it!  :)  The best part is that everything is well attached and you can't see one bit of adhesive. Love them GLUE DOTS!
