Skelly House


Happy Saturday, everyone! We've all started decorating for Halloween, right? Today I have a quick project to share that adds to my collection of decorations for the holiday. This cute little assembly came together in a jiffy and used a lot of Halloween paper scraps from my stash.

I started with a GSL Tiny Little Shadowbox House 1. I cut the rear wall paper to size before assembling it with tacky glue. I painted the front edges with black acrylic paint and papered the interior walls and ceiling.  The shadowbox house fits this miniature skeleton perfectly.

I added a moon sticker to the inside of the house and glued that on top of a GSL Bagatelle Box 1.5 x 3 inch that was also decorated with paper scraps.

To foot the project I grabbed some wooden beads and painted them black. They fit perfectly onto a Q-Tip which made them easy to paint as well as supported them while the paint dried.

Miniature glass bottles were filled with different kinds of dried moss. I used straight pins to hold crystal beads in place on top of the bottle corks.

The bottles got tiny labels and were glued in place next to the skeleton house. I grabbed some green Flower Soft to embellish the surface of the piece with a coating of moss.


A bit of white glue sets it in place.

Thanks for stopping by!
