Wood Halloween Wall Hanging

Halloween is day after tomorrow !!!! EEEEKKK Here is a simple project I made with wood letters I got at Walmart. They spell the "word" BOO. All I did was paint them with acrylic paint. Let them dry, and then add dots with a dauber with glitter paint. I then glued the three letters together with a hot glue gun. Final step: decorate with die cuts, either made by you or store bought. And, VOILA, there you have your new Halloween home decor !!!

Have a HaPPy and Safe Halloween on Monday !!!!

Haunted Village

Hi !!! It's been a while since my last post, but here I am again. :)
I promised my daughter, that I would make a haunted village for my grandson Santiago, inspired on one that I saw on Scrapbooks etc magazine. Here it finally is !!!

First, make different size templates for the buildings.

Trace image over cardstock. Cut out windows and doors.

Cover the windows (on the inside) with parchment paper inked in orange.

Cut out silhouettes of bats, ghouls, cats, witches, etc., and place on the inside of the "parchment paper window". Add chalk shading to the walls and draw details into the windows and doors. Glue building together. Add a battery operated tea light to inside of the building.

Paint a block of styrofoam with shades of gray and black. Glue a fence around the styrofoam block and add some cotton to make "fog".


AT NIGHT !!!! .......... BOOOooooOOOOooooooOOO

I hope you have enjoyed my post, and make this "spooky" little village for your little ones. HUGS !!!! HAPPy HaLLoWeeN !!!!!
