Another inexpensive find at Michael’s, this little wooden haunted house cutout is from Lara’s Crafts – think it was $2. I covered it with paper from Bo Bunny – my son gave his opinion about not understanding using the word paper (which he thought was way cool though) on a house, but I just liked how the color transitions came out in “house form”. You know, I keep buying these detailed wooden cutouts and then covering them in paper and THEN remembering why I told myself not to do it again. It’s seriously a PITA. If you really want to try this, just plan on spending some quality time with your Xacto knife. And be careful – it’s easy to slice into the fingers while trying to get all the nooks and crannies of something like this, lol!
I had originally planned to try to get all the details separated out, but the cutout is a little odd in spaces – I wasn’t sure just what parts were actually intended to look like. so instead I took the easy route and added a bunch of EK stickers. Those are always fun to play with – several of them have been moved several times (those poor birds) so once I’m SURE I like them where they are (yes, they even got moved while I was photographing, lol), I’ll need to use a secondary adhesive on them for permanence.
I’ll be putting it up with a candle behind it. If it’s safe. Right now I’m thinking it might need glitter…or something… See why I never get anything done? I keep wanting to add to it later. And add to it. LOL!
