Halloween home decor

Warning:  This post is photo-heavy! 

To start my project, I printed out four past Halloween photos of my boys in costume on my Canon Selphy.  It has an option to add a border to the photos and I really liked the look of the border with the black and white photos.  (I converted them to B&W using PSE).    

(I took multiple photos of my photo tray.  I kept trying to find the perfect light.  Not sure if I ever found it!) 

I picked up the photo tray at Hobby Lobby for $6!  It was originally $9.99 but I had a 40% off coupon.  I thought this was a steal.  I used lots of paper scraps that I had at home.  I also used a few Cutting Cafe files.  I used The Cutting Cafe's Halloween time, Halloween mini colored set, and the 13 piece Halloween set.    

(Don't forget you can click on photos to make them larger.) 

The Bingo card is from the Cutting Cafe set Halloween time.  I used a couple of Copic markers to color in the title.  I also used some PTI tea dye ink to make it more vintage-y.  (Not sure if that is a word!  hehe!)  The black paper was embossed using Stampin Up's new web folder.

The pumpkin was cut out using the 13 piece Halloween set.  I added in some ribbon I had laying around.  

The colored witch boots are from The Cutting Cafe's Halloween mini colored set.  They are already colored in.  All I did was hit print and punched it out with a 1.5" circle punch!  I die cut some felt using one of PTI's mat stack dies.  The buttons are from my stash.  I used embroidery floss to attach them to the felt.  The doily is from the cake decor aisle at Hobby Lobby.  I used some tea dye on it also. 

Don't you just LOVE the spooky trees?  They are from the Cutting Cafe's Halloween time set.  Can you imagine having to hand cut those?  All I did was put a black piece of paper in my cricut, set up SCAL and I was done! 

The candy corn was easily cut using the 13 piece Halloween set from The Cutting Cafe.

I hope you enjoyed this post - sorry it was so long.  I had a fun time making this little photo tray and it is now proudly hanging in my living room.  I can't wait to make one for Christmas!

  3. Hobby Lobby ripped off the design from 7gypsies. Pretty sad they can't think of designs them selves to sell.
