Happy Halloween everybody.
Halloween is not something I have ever made anything for but the kids seem to be into it and by default auntie ends up getting into the, erm, spirit of things. Today I am doing two posts, this is the first and the latter will go live later on.
These are some MDF Halloween things that I have made and hung up in the house. All the MDF is by Dreamees and I was wondering how I could display the things without them looking a mess then I thought, suction cup hooks. These clear ones are ideal for where I needed them to be as I have glass doors and they would be fairly anonymous. Bits of ribbon to hold the letters and there you go. No mess and reusable.
Boo! has been made using some Dreamees embossing glitter which, if I am correct can be used as a glitter and an embossing powder, and I’ve been using them like glitter for a long time now. Once dry I sealed them with my staple of Crafters Companion Spray and Shine which protects and seals and is worth every penny.
The bats I love!! They were first painted black and then when dry I applied some Tim Holtz Distress Glitter in Black Soot on either side and then left them to dry before adding the black ribbon. I could have stood them up around the house but hanging on the door is lovely.
Finally there is my haunted house. Again I painted the whole thing black except the windows and door. The roof off the house had an extra layer so I used the Distress Glitter again to add some effect. The doors and windows were painted white and then I added some Distress Glitter in Spiced Marmalade to the doors and windows. I could have gone all out with cobwebs and such but my Halloween is a little more subdued than most.
Anyway I hope that you like this post and pop back for the next one today.
