A Hama bead witch Halloween display

You can find all my Hama bead Halloween crafts here - Hama bead crafts for Halloween

Last year I blogged about the Hama bead witches that I made for Halloween, using the princess pegboard. I was really pleased with them, and when I was sorting out the Halloween decorations to put out this year I thought it would be nice to come up with a better way to display them to decorate the house and entertain any trick or treaters.

I gave each child a shoebox lid to make a standing display for their favourite witch.

First we painted the shoebox lids black and added some glitter paint and glitter while the paint was still wet. Then we stuck the Hama bead witches in using some foam pads so that they were raised slightly from the background. The children decorated inside the boxes using sequins and bits of Halloween spider ribbon. When it was dry we popped a battery powered tealight in the bottom to make light up decorations (obviously these decorations aren't safe to use with real tea lights!).
