Happy October friends and welcome to another edition of our Int’l Bloggers Club challenge! We are a bit early this month, but our theme this month is, you guessed it, Halloween! So to give you some time to get inspired and have fun with our posts, we decided to go ahead and post our ideas today! I’ll be showing you my DIY spooky Halloween shadow box. Last months theme was fall, you can find my fall craft for that here.
Here where we live, in the South of Spain, Halloween is not really a special day. No trick or treating, no decorations, it’s not celebrated here. In our house however, we like Halloween and while living in Canada, we used to love to go trick or treating and had decor up everywhere! I don’t decorate a lot now, a bit here and there because my girls really enjoy it. Very close to where we live, is an American Naval Base and our American friends had invited us to go in with them last year, as there they do always have lots going on for Halloween. We don’t have plans yet for this year, but we will have a fun night for sure, even if we end up staying home!
I made this DIY spooky Halloween shadow box for my girls, while we were sitting down together at our dining room table, each one preparing something for Halloween. The girls each had to make up a Halloween quote with a poster for school, and it was such a fun afternoon.
Here are the easy steps for my DIY spooky Halloween Shadow Box
Paint box roughly in black
Cover background with fabric
Add fabric to bottom
Glue on moon, spooky house and bat [I used my hot glue gun]
Glue on twigs, ghost and spiders
Arrange the pumpkin lights in the twigs
I used all items from around the house, except for the spiders and lights but they were both really inexpensive.
I hope you enjoyed my little spooky shadow box and maybe got some inspiration to make your own or something similar… Make sure to check out the other ladies’ posts, I can’t wait to see what they’ve made for Halloween in their neck of the woods!
As always, Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it!
