Half Moon Witch Light Fixture Cover Up

I have a light fixture in my Kitchen that has been missing the glass cover. I know it was missing last Summer when we stayed in my Father-in-Law's rental house and well... Put it this way if the mechanics of something is working properly that is all that matters!
So, here is what you see if you look up:
Oh, so pretty right!

So, Since I am having Family Dinner at my house Sunday and I am going with the Halloween theme. I made this light cover up!

So, Do you want to know how I made it?

Using my Cricut and the A Child's Year Cartridge I cut out 4 of the 2 different style witches. I varied the sizes too. The largest was cut at 5", then I when down to 3 1/2" and then two cut at 2 1/2" - The witches represent our family members. Hubby, Daughter, Son and Me....oh and there are two cats on one of the designs. So, my two dogs are represented.....maybe under a spooky spell!

Next, I tied the witches with one strand of embroidery floss in an ivory shade.

I just guessed that I needed about 4 half moons & mounting strips in Yellow. Using my Creative Memories Custom Cutting Tool - Jumbo Circle. I cut out 4 half circles in mulberry paper.

Attached my yellow cardstock strip, which was cut 1" x 12" and to the back attached mini glue dots. Using the mini glue dots facing the edge of the fixture I stuck each section up.

Adjust as I when around the fixture and TA-DA, Hocus Pocus, Al-shsam!
