Halloween House

Awhile ago my MIL bought me a few of these:
Now.. I have been looking at them and thinking of what I could do with them.. but then they would kinda get lost in the stash.. and believe me there is some stash to get lost in!
So now that Halloween is here.. I thought it would be the perfect time to get one all done up.
So here it is .. my first paper mache Halloween House!
And here is how I made it!
I started by painting the top, bottom and edges black.
Next I cut out the shapes of the areas I was going to cover with scrapbook paper.
Then I glued the paper onto the house.
Last I added some fun little touches like a windows with a ghost, some scary jack o lanterns, headstones and the night sky with moon and bats!
And here it is on my shoe organizer.
And a few more shots.. cause I really LOVE IT!
Don't know why I didn't try this sooner.. silly me!
Hope you all have a Happy Halloween!
Oh and don't forget to enter my 3 giveaways going on now..

Upcycled Window Halloween Style.. and Super Giveaway Alert!

I think I may have mentioned a time or two that I am a complete procrastinator in life.. so yes I am STILL trying to decorate for Halloween!
But before I share my project.. I just want you to know that tomorrow will start the first of 6 giveaways that I have instore for you over the next two weeks to celebrate my 500 followers!
Now onto the decorating!  This time I used this old window
 from my neighbors house to add to the decor.
I just cut out some some spooky shapes like a headstone, owl, tree and bats.
Then I glued them in place in the window.
Next I painted the frame black and added a "spooky" banner and some gravestones.
Last I set it up on my table at the bottom of the stairs.
Hope to see you tomorrow.. for some giveaway fun!
