Use your crafty supplies to scare up some haunting Halloween decor!
Hello all you fab-BOO-lous people out there! It’s Lisa here with a spooky fun Halloween table scene — that comes together super fast!
I started out by stamping the ghost from the Halloween Treat Tags set several times on watercolor paper, then I grabbed my Daniel Smith Essentials set and colored away! I tried not to be too careful about it — I think it looks so so much better this way — just go wild with the color. I stuck to quinacridone rose and new gamboge from the set for most all my projects this release, but use what suits your fancy! Who says ghosts have to be white, right?
Once that was done it was on to the Pyramid Box. I cut it out of black cardstock, then used the Starry Night die to cut some stars in the sides. I tried to angle the box so that I would get most of the stars long the bottom sides since I planned to put the ghosts up top, but it’s no big deal if you don’t.
Note: at first I put two boxes together, but I found the light showed through so much better with just the one! Plus it made it easier to get the battery powered tea light candle in and out. Bonus!
Then I cut a bunch of Essential Stars out of orange, coral and gold foil cardstock — love the look this gives!
Next I stamped the “BOO” and “You’ve Been BOO’d” from Tag-It Halloween and scattered them here and there.
Then it was time to add those battery powered tea light candles and impatiently wait for it to get dark…
I tried hard to get a good photo to show you the lights in action — but it was impossible. Guess you’ll just have to make one yourself to see this spooky fun in person!
Also! Just had to add that I cannot wait to use the Pyramid Box to make some Christmas trees! Or maybe even a whole advent calendar!? We’ll see! Until then, have an amazing fall, y’all! — Lisa
