Spooky Halloween Holiday Decor

Hey there Peeps! I'm having a spooky good time creating Halloween decor with my GSL chippies! I'm sharing a project today that started out as an exploding box (coming soon)....but took a turn for the better and became a really fun 3d holiday decor piece. I can just see this sitting on a mantle or shelf as part of a vintagy vingnette.

All of the most fabulous Halloweeny things all in one place!
Who doesn't want a spiderweb filled trophy in their holiday decor?
I used the Exploding Box to create a sturdy base.
The layered on all the fun and festive embellies.
Finished on all sides it's fabby from any angle.
I coated the box in Flat Black Gesso.
Then added layers of patterned papers.
The square side panels made it super easy to measure and cut the papers for the base. I finished the edges with black ink.

Even just by itself the base is really cute.....this mix of patterns is so vintagy!
Bringing in some embellishments to build up the height.
This spiderweb String Along is too tall : (
So I clipped it and re-attached it so all the great detail would sit just on top of the trophy. I painted it black...but missed the picture.

A little embossing powder heat set to finish these chippies and I was ready to assemble.

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts~ Gothic String Alongs, Spooky Shapes, Exploding Box coming soon.
Okay that's all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
