BOO! Halloween Decor

Here's another Halloween item I made this year. I found the BOO glitter letters kits at Michael's. They were somewhat pricey but I had big plans for them.

I have an Accucut Craft shape that looks somewhat like a headstone and that's what I wanted to use for this project. I cut them from heavy chipboard, painted them black, decorated them, attached them with hinges at the top and put black tulle in the middle. Then I attached the bottoms with "W" shaped hinges to give it some stability for standing.

I LOVE how this turned out! I made it a double-sided design. It's identical on both sides. At any time, you can click the pictures for a bigger view.

On the "B", the tree is an older Lifestyles Craft die which I covered in black stickles. The skull is a sticker from Michaels Craft Store and the word is a smaller Accucut Craft alphabet die that I have which I cut from red felt.

On the purple "O", I used a Lifestyle Crafts spider die and an Old Island Stamp Company haunted house that I coloured with Copic markers. I also put some green sequins on it that I got at the Dollar Store (either Dollarama or Dollar Tree).

On the orange "O", I used a Recollections witch stamp, coloured googly eyes I got at Michaels Craft Store and a broom from a snowman album die set by Accucut Craft. The bats are my own die cut design which I cut with my Brother Scan'N'Cut out of black cardstock which I covered in purple stickles.

One feature I'm really glad I worked in to this design: after Halloween, it folds up for storage!

If only I had the room to store an Accucut Craft large alphabet, then I would have letters big enough that I could have cut them from the glitter fun foam myself. I could make a JOY or SNOW version for Christmas and a LOVE version for all year round. What home decor pieces have you made with your craft?
