Happy Day, Everyone!
I am back with what will probably be the last installment of my Halloween house tour. Today, I amsharing my mantel décor.
This was a really simple project to throw together. Some thrift store candlesticks, Tim Holtz Configurations boxes spray painted black, and a nice bold black font printed on some Sassy Designs digital papers.
On the other side of the mantel are some more TH configuration boxes that I spritzed with spray inks, and stamped, and/or covered with washi tape. I printed and cut to size some really awesome vintage skeleton prints. These are displayed on a couple of bud vases from Goodwill.
This mantel clock has to be one of my best antique scores of the entire year. I purchased it for $20.00 at a local group shop. I had lots of fun disassembling the innards, with a bit of help from DH. I printed the witch image on a sheet of acetate, applied some Ranger Alcohol Inks and cut it to fit the clock. I stuck it in with poster tack, which is concealed behind the brass fitting. I didn't want to use glue, as I am certain that this piece will be used for every season. It looks so cool with the lights out and a candle flickering behind it!
I stamped the domino with a Tim Holtz stamp and black Archival ink. I rubbed on some Coffee Archival with a sponge as well. I also used a black Archival and a TH stamp on the little poison bottle. I have a ton of these tiny vaccination bottles that DD brought home to me when she worked for a vet. I filled the bottle with some of my self made paint spray, and stuck a label and game piece into the cork using a label pin.
The seasonal rosette features some acetate bats, a dollar store crow, and a cool skull button that I made using an image from the The Graphics Fairy, and my button machine.
Here is the final result:
Because I am linking up to the The Grapics Fairy Brag Monday Party, I wanted show you a close up of another cool thing I did recently:
This really cool spider is hanging on the antique window in my game room. I printed it on acetate, cut it to fit, and stuck it on with some of that clear gluey stuff that sometimes comes on plastic packaging. Believe it or not, I peel that good stuff off and save it in a milk jug lid on my craft table. It really comes in handy sometimes. It's very hard to deny my New England Yankee roots when I share stuff like that, LOL!
