    Halloween in Wonderland & Related FREE Tea Gift Kit!

    Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Art Projects, Back in Stock, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Halloween, Sale, Teri Calia

    Eek! You are going to LOVE the new Halloween room box by Teri Calia! But first a tiny reminder about the sale ending TOMORROW. (And more info on the Alice/Tea FREE gift related to Teri’s project is below.)

    Continuing from Thursday and ENDS TOMORROW night, October 16th:

    EVERYTHING in the Paper Theatres Collage Sheets section is on sale for 50% off!

    Laura Carson’s House Of Ghosts from Thursday’s newsletter included lots of windows and other architectural trims (all distressed to look old and abandoned). So I picked out a collage sheet section that includes windows (or curtains)… 87 options! The sale ends Monday night, October 16th!
     

    Halloween in Wonderland Room Box by Teri Calia

    Everything about this project is sooo perfect for Halloween: the color palette is loverly, the reupholstery of the footstool in an orange and black checked fabric is too cute, all the treats on the table (including tiny painted cookies) are bright and colorful (see a close-up below), and the little scene on the wall shelf with painted figurines in purple… a purple Cheshire cat is inspired!

    Today’s project is one of my favorites as it combines two of my favorite things, Alice in Wonderland and Halloween. I started off with a Corner Room Box, then covered it with some Halloween in Wonderland paper. A little black paint and some black Dresden to give the outside a polished finish and I was all set to add a scene.

    I chose to do a tea party in my scene because I love miniature tea sets and sweets. There wasn’t a lot of room in my box for a tea table, soooo… I used the table parts in the Round Table & Chairs Kit to build half the table. I followed the instruction provided in the box and literally only built half of the table (the supports under the table need to be cut in half but everything else is already in halves).

    I also needed a chair for my tea party, so, I built one of the chairs in the kit and added some spooky extras… a Tiny Resin Skull was glued to the back of the chair and two Resin Boneyard Bones were glued to the sides of the chair instead of the supports from the kit. I sanded down the backs of the bones where they glued onto the chair, with an emery board, so they fit well before I glued them in place with Non-Toxic Cement for Plastic Models.

    Read more in Teri’s blog post (including how she sprayed all the pieces to be painted with primer). And here’s a link to her Halloween in Wonderland Room Box supply list.

    And be sure to come back and enter the Giveaway, to win lots of supplies from Teri’s project!


     

     
    New FREE Gift: Teatime for Halloween Gift Kit

    Ah… super cute: a teapot, one set of teacup plus saucer, and 2 mini scrapbook papers:
    - Halloween in Wonderland – Square Hare
    and
    - Moonlit Masquerade (that I think would be perfect to cut into tiny placements).

    Except for that last paper, all of these items are also used by Teri in her room box! (Note: I’m showing fronts & backs of the 2 papers in the photo — and both sides are useful for Halloween.)

    ALL ORDERS on Sunday through Wednesday, October 15-18 (2017) will receive one of these mini kits FREE (until we run out)!
     

     

    Hooray for the Teatime in Wonderland Giveaway!

    I just had to zoom in on that fabulously spooky chair that Teri made! I love how she replaced the chair arms with bones (and see the little inset below for how it looked before being painted).

    So to start off this Giveaway: the bones, and table AND chair kit. (See Teri’s blog post for info about how she used just half of the round table, to save space.)

    Next up: the paper set that is covering front, back and floor of the room box.

    Moving on to that table: You may not have recognized the teapot as Teri changed the colors from white and pink to black and orange: that teapot and a set of teacups is included, too! (It’s so cute how Teri painted 3 of them in different, bright colors and stacked them.)

    Note: those teacups and the teapot are the same ones included in the Teatime for Halloween Gift Kit!

    Finally, check out that close-up in the lower right of the large photo: Teri made a skeleton flamingo! I’m not sure what little plastic flamingo figurine Teri painted, but I’m including the pumpkin and the Spun cotton mushrooms!

    Psst! Here’s a link to everything Teri used for her project, though not everything listed is in this Giveaway.

      What a wonderfully creative little scene,I would use it in one of my Halloween houses.

    39. Traci Says:

      Great project I love Alice in Wonderland. Graphic 45 papers are the best for a halloween themed Alice. I love Teri’s chair and the flamingo-would love to make both of those but I guess I would make the whole room as what good is a chair w/o a place to put it. >^..^<

    40. Kathlene Ford-Walters Says:

      Halloween’s Alice in Wonderland – who could ask for more. Both are favorites. Thanks for sharing.

    44. Kate Meyers Says:

      What a fabulous give away!!! I see me making a witchy setting, perhaps a Halloween party inside a carvable pumpkin. I’ve managed to amass a great deal of spooky stuff over the years from Alpha stamps, so it will be quite a party. Fingers and toes crossed here.

    45. Lindy Says:

      I would totally create a little scene like Terri’s! That little flamingo is perfect

    46. Jo Says:

      I love these pieces and ideas! Would love to incorporate them into my miniature Halloween house!

    59. Michelle G. Says:

      I would love to make something like Terri’s. I love Alice in Wonderland and Halloween, what an awesome combination.

    64. sheila AR Says:

      I adore Teri’s project! G45′s Halloween in Wonderland is my fave collection of theirs, and Teri used it here in a way I will borrow from. These tiny miniature scenes with their tiny accouterments are exquisite and always suggest many stories to me. LOVE!

    65. K Toews Says:

      I love the idea of a witch’s nook with a fireplace, comfortable chair and ‘witchy’ books.

    66. Sylvia L Says:

      I would use some of the ideas & items to furnish the interior of a haunted dollhouse I’m working on. The chairs especially are so creative & creepy.
