Halloween Wall Hanging

Hi everyone!  This is Kelly from kbiendesigns.  Today I have a Halloween wall or door hanging, which is a quick and easy way to decorate for the holiday!

I started with the new Happy Haunting paper Graphic 45.  I started with an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of black cardstock.  I then cut down the striped paper from Happy Haunting to 8 x 10 1/2.  I used foam tape (a lot of it) to adhere it to the black paper.  I did this for two reasons - one for dimension and the other for stability. I then added a layer of plain orange cardstock cut down to 7 1/2 x 10, then a layer of bat paper cut down to 7 x 9 1/2.  Each layer was adhered with foam tape in different directions, again for stability.




At this point, I knew I wanted to use doilies, but I haven't had success inking the white doilies.  I never seemed to get the right color.  Then it dawned on me - cut out your own!  So I went searching and found the perfect cut from Paper Lace. I cut the doilies out at 4.5", one in black and one in orange.
I then trimmed two other patterned papers from the stack to layer horizontally, to anchor the doilies.

I grabbed my Teresa Collins Chic and Scary and cut out "BEWARE" at 4.5" from black cardstock, and layered that with foam dots.


I then cut out the adorable little witch on a pumpkin from Happy Haunting and, you guessed it, layered that on with more foam tape!  Glued down a few buttons with baker's twine and I was done!

I will be hanging this on my door on Halloween night with the adorable Melissa Frances hanger!



Thanks for looking and have a great Halloween!

  11. I read your directions before I looked at your photo and 8.5x11 wasn't registering in my head at first. BUT, when I saw your pic I had to pick up my jaw from the table, lol! That is a great project and size for the door! It looks like a patchwork (and I LOVE patchwork)! Very clever!
