The halloween display

Today on the Heidi Swapp blog I am sharing my Aussie version of a Halloween display. Of course I had to add in some yellow to the traditional orange and black colour scheme. Wink!

I started with a digi word from Heidi's digi shop, I printed it off and wound it through my type writer for a fun twist!

I painted some goodies including a real pumpkin and these plastic skeletons with metallic silver spray paint! I made his little hat from paper from Heidi's Believe collection!

The little yellow frame I bought in Michaels when I visited the US in January, I spritzed a Color Magic letter in Georgia Peach Colorshine and added it to the frame.

I found the paper Mache hat in Riot Art and Crafts  and spray painted that in the silver metallic spray paint. The beautiful bloom was a gift from fellow team member Jamie Pate and I hot glued it to my hat. I finished it off with a crepe paper ruffle on the bottom of the hat.
I used the Halloween digi word again and created the subway art printable. I have provided it as  free download on the Heidi swap blog here.
I found the wooden words at Spotlight and covered them in various Heidi Swapp pattern papers. For the B I added a fun element using the Epiphany Crafts  Hexagon tool. The O uses another word from the digi words.

The last O I added a spider I cut with my silhouette.

I used the silver spray paint to cover my plastic skull and gave her a pretty bow using the Bow Die from Stampin Up!

I also wanted a place to share my past Halloween photos so I used  one of the Shadow box frames and spritzed it with Tinsel Colorshine.  I wanted my shadow box to be transferable to other Celebrations such as Christmas  so I  kept the pattern paper (adhered to the back of the frame) a neutral black  and white.

I hot glued a binding Mechanism to the pattern paper and then layered it over my photos and embellishments to decorate. I started with another Epiphany Crafts hexagon dome and tied it on with black craft wire that I wound around a pencil for  a fun look and then filled it with photos, banners and other goodies for a fun layered look!


I am loving this little Halloween vignette sitting on my dining room table. It makes me smile every time I look at it!
