Spooky Halloween

Today I have a Halloween home decor project to share with you.  I love Halloween! I love home decor!  So of course this was a perfect combination for me to have fun with!  As I began to decide what to make, I knew I wanted it to be more on the cute side of Halloween as compared to scary or spooky. 


I used two of my favorite Cricut Halloween themed cartridges including October 31st and Happy Hauntings to create this project. This project is also being featured on the Cricut Blog today too. 


I also used Mother's Day Bouquet to create the black roses!  I love making my own flowers, and Cricut has 2 great cartridges that will help you create them too. The other one is called Flower Shoppe.  Both of them are perfect for creating gorgeous flowers with dimension!  If you are interested in more information on how I created this project you can head over to the Cricut Blog to check out all the details.

Since I have a bit of a Halloween theme going on today, I also thought I would share another Halloween decor piece I made with you.  I created this last year as one of my first Cricut Circle Blog projects.  I will admit, that this was one of those projects that did NOT end up looking like what I had in mind when I started it.  It was going to be a Halloween wreath (you know one of those 18" foam wreaths you can get at a craft store) and then one thing led to another and this is what I ended up with...a haunted house complete with it's own boo crew!  You can see that the wreath was included, but this was no longer something that was going to hang on a door! LOL!!!



I even had fun naming the little spooks!
I introduce you to Wanda the Witch,


Vampire Val,


Scooter Skeleton,


and Frankie Frankenstein!


Aren’t they the cutest little boo crew ever?!


Those are strips of ribbon and patterned paper wrapped around the crepe paper covered foam wreath.


The house and the tree were first cut from chipboard and then from patterned paper. I adhered the paper shape to the chipboard shape to make them more sturdy for the diorama.
