October is here! It's my very favorite month! It's all things magical and FALL FILLED!
I am sharing a little Halloween decor with you today!
I created a little haunted house with some Maya Road (thank you for spoiling us!) and Ruby Rock-It products and I am going to show you how I did it!
Step 1: Using some Maya Road chipboard and some Maya Road packaging, you are going to create a ghost for the window. I used the backing for Maya Road packaging for both eh window and the ghost. Set the window aside, the beauty of this is you are going to cover the back so it doesn't have to be pretty.
Step 2: You're going to use the window you created to measure for your ghost. Using Maya Road packaging again, you can outline and cut out a ghost. Adhere it to the window. Line it up with the chipboard house (open window) and using a pencil mark where you are going to adhere your window and set aside.
Step 3: I was going for a rustic feel so I used a paper from the Summer Daze collection. Add adhesive to the top side, flip it over onto the paper, making sure that the wood grain is facing away from you. You want the wood grain to be the house. After you've adhered it well, take your craft knife and cut out the windows, running your knife along the windows. Take care not to cut through the window pane.
Step 4: I'm inserting an extra picture for you here:
Use the white border as an easy cutting guide, line the roof up with the paper, trace it and cut it out. As pictured in #4, adhere it on top of the woodgrain, and voila!...you have a roof.
The paper is from Ruby Rock-It's Graduation mini theme (You're A Star).
You can now adhere the ghost into the window. Line it up with the pencil marks you made and adhere it. Remember what I said about backing the house? Use another house that is the same shape in the Maya Road Chipboard assortment, line it up with the house, making sure they line up and then add adhesive.
Things I added to the house:
Using some clear adhesive and Ruby Rock-It wood veneer (Stars & Hearts Wood Veneer), I created a star chimney, to match the starry roof. Using the Maya Road Trinket Pins, I inserted them into the roof to have it appear like there was some Halloween magic brewing inside.
I added a little clipboard to the front of the house. I used some Ruby Rock-It and Maya Road, they coupled together perfectly. Using more chipboard, die cuts and embellishments! (I'm sorry for the blurry picture!)
This is the completed project, I'm planning on adding it amongst the Halloween decorations this year, provided Mackenzie doesn't swipe it for her room.
Here's a close up of the sweet clipboard:
