Halloween Decor 2012
at Alderberry Hill
This year I have added turquoise to my Halloween decor, just a touch of the famous blue goes a long way. And it mixes so well with orange but I thought I’d use red in this display along with silver for a modern Halloween feel!
I picked up the Halloween Tree at Michaels and decided on simple bats cut with my Silhouette Machine as decoration for the tree.
I coated them with Mod Podge and sprinkled red, silver & turquoise glitter on them and adhered them to the tree with double sided tape.
I didn’t have any real old fashioned keys so I made a set!
I cut them out with my Silhouette and covered them in glitter too!
Remember the Halloween Glass Blocks I made a couple of weeks back? Well, I was left with a stencil that I used to create this wooden sign. I cut a piece of pine down to size and sanded the edges.
1. Paint white/cream and let dry
2. Adhere your stencil to the wood (my vinyl was adhesive so I stuck right on, but you can use spray adhesive on your stencil too)
3. Paint your letters black
4. Distress with a little black paint
I am in love, it turned out so good!
I picked up this cute frame from Goodwill, it wasn’t always turquoise & there was a terrible canvas print in the frame with no glass. So I spray painted the entire thing, canvas and all and added the sweet “Happy Halloween” which I cut with my Silhouette Machine.
I made the Halloween wreath using cupcake liners last year. You can view the tutorial here.
I added in my Glitzy Halloween Coffin, tutorial here.
And a Halloween Printable, found here.
This little bird house was hanging out in storage so I spooked it up with a little turquoise, silver & black paint and gave it some height by placing it on a candle stick holder.
And the look is complete!
This little nook is in my craft room, I’m all ready for Halloween!
When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.
