Our Haunted Hollow

Here are some fun decorations I made for Halloween this year. I had a blast creating and they were all so easy.
I got a pack of Halloween paper and used my Cricut cutter for my EEK! sign. The picture did not do it justice. It is very vibrant and all of the black shapes on the toxic green colored paper had glitter. Total Time: 15 minutes
For the Happy Hallows Eve sign I refurbished an old white picture frame to black and roughed it up. Then I found a spider web transparency, Halloween paper, and some black Thicker's at Robert's Crafts. After cutting the paper to the sizes I wanted, I distressed the edges with black ink. I positioned everything and glued down with GlueDots. Then I flipped it over and hot glued some bright green grosgrain ribbon.
Total Time: 1 hour

For the Our Haunted Hollow blocks I used chopped and sanded wood painted black. Then on the front of each block I Mod Podged a square of distressed Halloween scrapbook paper cut to size. Next time I need to use a roller so that it doesn't bubble. I then cut out and distressed the letters using the Cricut cutter and black ink. Mod Podge again and display.

Here are some close ups

EnJOY!
