Welcome to Friday everyone. I am so excited to share with you this fun Halloween decor project that I created for Lori Whitlock Designs. She creates my favorite Silhouette and SVG diecuts along with my favorite papers from Echo Park. So let me tell you how I created this wall hanging.
First I cut a piece of chipboard 8x8 and covered it with patterned paper. This paper actually comes from a paper line created by Lori Whitlock for Echo Park called For the Record Bouquet. Actually I used it here on this project too. Different huh? Totally not a Halloween line but that is what I love about Lori's products. They are so versatile. Then I cut out a scalloped square from this file and attached it to the back of the chipboard piece so that the back of the wall hanging would be finished as well.
Then it was time to decorate the front. I used the file 4 Halloween Titles to cut the Spooky Title , Cat and House. I added some extra dimension to the house by running it through my crimper and then inking it up with Tim Holtz Pumice Stone distress ink. Then I added some orange glitter from DCWV on the back of the house so that it looked like it was glowing inside. And what do you think about the little eyeballs peeking out the window? The kids will love those.
I used Spider and Web set for the web and this Witch Icons file to make the creepy spiders. I used orange gems for their eyes. Love the details these give the spiders. The web is cut out of black glitter paper from DCWV. I love how glitter paper adds details and an extra dimension. I cut the spiders out of regular cardstock from Bazzill so that you could see them in the web.
The Halloween Garland Bats found in the Silhouette store were cut from black glitter paper in different sizes for variety and again I attached a small piece of orange glitter paper to the back of them so that they have orange eyes. Fun!
The last thing I did was to punch holes through the top of each corner and thread some black satin ribbon and twine through the holes so that I could hang it in my foyer. I think it's going to be a fun piece for the kids to see when they come trick or treating. I'm going to pull some fake spider webbing across it as well and cut some more of those bats out of black vinyl to stick to the walls around it.
