Welcome to the Falling for Halloween Blog Hop. Thanks for joining us for some crafty Fall or Halloween inspiration. You should have arrived here from Renee's i came i saw i created blog . If you missed the beginning of the hop, please go to Maria's blog to start so you don't miss any of the projects.
I am a BIG lover of the fall holidays but HALLOWEEN is my favorite ! Maybe it is just the thought of the air finally turning cooler or the cute little kids dressed in their Halloween costumes that bring a smile to everyone's face ? But I really think I have a passion for all the spooky images ...when at other times of the year I don't really like scary things. And I sure can't seem to resist the traditional Halloween colors of orange, black, lime green, purple together !
Every year I change up the Halloween decor on our entry hall table that greets people when they arrive in our home. This year I decided to make a Halloween Table Frame to put along with some other items I bought for Halloween this year.
Using one of my favorite Halloween Cricut Cartridges ever, "Happy Hauntings", I made the frame on page 68 cut at 6". I did make a chipboard backing and stand first so it is more substantial by using a deep cut blade on my Cricut machine. Then I did the cuts again using cardstock to cover the chipboard. The perfect Halloween colored glittery and shiny cardstock is from DCWV Bewitched stack. The "Happy Haunting" phrase is on page 46 and cut at 1 1/4" and the Ghost at 2" on page 47 in shiny lime green cardstock. The Ghost also has a black glittery backing that I offset slightly (hard to see that in the picture). The Orange Typeset paper is from MME Haunted 6X6 paper pad I bought at Michael's craft store recently. I used the left over chipboard cut out to put it on and added a little bit of Orange Marmalade Distress Ink on the edges. I tied some fun ribbon from my stash and added a few dangling gems for some more sparkle. A girl can't have too much sparkle in her home, right? LOL
Hopefully in this view you can see that the frame is made in layers using
pop foam dots to give it more dimension.
One of the images for the frame on the cartridge is the stand.
As I mentioned before, I not only used chipboard to the make the frame and
stand but I then covered both with black cardstock to give the frame a more finished look.
I bent the chipboard stand slightly at the score marks so that it sits correctly
on the back of the frame and adhered with double sided score tape.
And here is the final Halloween vignette on my hall table now.
The great glittery lime green skull head was only $2.50 at Target
and so was the glittery trick or treat flameless candle that I put on a
crystal candle holder base for some added height.
Now I just need to decorate the rest of the house so stay tuned for more Halloween Decor !
