For this month's Blog Hop the Creative Team has 

been working with a Halloween theme and today I have a 
SPOOKY home decor project to share!


I have created an 8-1/2" x 11" Spooky frame using the 
following Samantha Walker products:

5 Piece Shape Set Silhouette Store
Halloween Washi Tape Word Silhouette Store
Skull Cameo Frame Silhouette Store
Digital Cuts or Masks Halloween Cameos Coming Soon to js.com


Paris Girl 6x6 Collection


Paris Girl 12x12 Collection







Isn't it Spooky!?


Tutorial:
1.  Trim green cardstock to fit on the outside of the frame, leaving a 1/4" border.
2.  Cut the shape from the 5 piece shape so it fits the length of the cardstock.
3.  Cut the Skull Cameo to fit within the shape.
4.  Cut a second Skull Cameo, trimming away the frame.  Ink the skull with charcoal ink.
5.  Adhere the shape to the cardstock.
6.  Use foam adhesive to adhere the Skull Cameo to the shape.
7.  This photo shows where I have placed my foam.
8.  Place the Skull Cameo in the center of the shape as shown.
9.  Adhere the second skull on top of the Skull Cameo with foam adhesives.
10.  Cut the Spooky Washi Tape and then trim a piece of green cardstock to fit underneath it.
11.  Place foam adhesive on the back of the Spooky Washi Tape.
12.  Adhere the washi tape cut to the green cardstock then place foam adhesive on the back of the set.
13.  Adhere the Spooky under the skull as shown then ink the edges of the green cardstock.
14.  I like to reuse frames, so for seasonal items I place a foam square in the center of the glass on my frame then adhere the green cardstock.  This way, I can take the piece off and store it while using the frame for other projects :)
15.  This is what your frame will look like.  Decorate as desired.  I added spider webs, a plastic spider (covered in glitter), a couple gems, and of course some flowers!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
