Happy Haunting!

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

This week the Joy's Life Design Team has been showcasing Fall Home Decor projects using those fabulous Joy's Life Stamps.

I decided to take the leap and attempt to make the haunted house from the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge.

I love Halloween! I cut my house out at 7.25" and my trees were cut out of the same cartridge at 4.75" as well as 5". It took a little time to cut out all the pieces and then assemble but it was worth it. For my windows, I cut those out of vellum. I will be adding a flameless candle underneath the house as October nears and the flickering light will shine through the vellum to give it a spooky look. I bought some spider webbing from the dollar store and draped that over the house. Hubby thought it looked cool with one of the plastic spider rings being on the house, so that got added as well. I used my SU bitty bat punch to punch out some bats to attach to the trees.

Here is a view from the top so that you can see how dimensional this project is:

No haunted house would be complete without a little flag flying overhead right?
This cute little saying comes from the Joy's Life Halloween Puns stamp set:

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation. I really appreciate it.

Don't forget, the Joy's Life DT will be showing you Fall Home Decor projects all week, so head on over there to check them out :)

I hope you have a great crafty day!
