Haunted House from Michaels
For now - I made the haunted house.
The house, paper, and decorating elements all came from my trip to M's with a lot left over.
I first painted the grass on the bottom, then the fence (this is difficult and takes some time to get all the rungs and sides coated in black. Then I painted the front and back of the houses (orange and purple).
Using the new Recollections Halloween 8 x 8 pack of cs I bought today - I measured each panel of the house and roof and chimney and glued them on With my Scott's quick dry glue.
Next I sponged some antique white paint here and the on the fence and houses.
Added the dimensional stickers and I think it came out cute.
Total time probably 3 - 3 1/2 hours.
I want to put a light in it but need to drill a hole in the back or bottom. hmmmm.
Next I still have to make the coffin... this one will be fun as it opens on a hinge so I have some thinking to do... I have a couple ideas.. but they will have to wait.
