Halloween Decor

Thank you for joining us on My Cricut Craft Room's Blog Hop

Today I made a basket and luminaries for Halloween to share with you.

The cartridges used were:
Pumpkin Carvings- luminary images,  boo,
Word collage- haunted words
Designers calendar- leaf
Flower shop- leaf
Classroom Oct-Nov.- hat
Monster bash- witches brew
Teresa Collins Chic & Scary- spider,  mask,  spooky
Autumn celebrations- pumpkin

Each item in the basket was either done with print then cut on the Explore or cut normally and adhered to a wood stick before it was placed in the foam in the basket.  Some of the spiders were attached to wire and placed in and around the basket.
The luminaries are double sided, so pay attention in the picture.  The basket is the same, but the bags are different.  I actually made a set of 4 different ones, but I never got around to making the other 2.  I also created a lid to put on top so that I couldn't see the vellum that was adhered on the inside.  The lid could be placed on the top or bottom to help hold it together.  I decided not to glue the bottom so that they could be stored flat.

Here is a close-up of the hat and mask so that you can see the details.  I inked the outer edge of the band on the hat and I used my embossing plates to do the orange on the hat and the masks.  I also rubbed Perfect Pearls on the mask to add extra dimension. 
I hope you enjoyed these fun projects that I made.  Please leave me a comment and visit the other great ideas on this Halloween Decor Blog Hop.
