    A Sugar Skull House for Halloween by Design Team Member Lora Mahaffey

    Wow! I love this project! (And be still my heart: we’re getting closer to Halloween!) From those backlit eyes to the skull itself (and how it just fits in the house)… it makes me happy!

    Here’s a bit from Lora’s blog post:

    I know it’s only July, but I am all about Halloween lately, and most everybody knows how much I love doing houses, so here is a Sugar Skull in a house.

    With bats.

    And some scary tree bits.

    And with glowing eyes.

    I started out with the Mini House Room Box – 4×4 Open. I took away the attic floor to make room for the Sugar Skull #1.

    Good tip!

    I laid the skull on top of the large center piece and marked where I wanted to drill holes for my glowing eyes. [Note: see below for a photo of this step... and another good tip!]

    Beside the few photos shown here, visit Lora’s blog post for lots of tips & more photos (including adding wires to the chipboard bats so they can fly)!

    Here’s a link to the supply list. Note that Lora mixed up branches from both sizes of Creepy Trees. And see the right side of the wide photo below for the Chipboard Fleur Border running across the top of the roof, and the shingles.

    Scroll down for TWO more NEW chipboard sugar skulls and a sugar skull rubber stamp!


     

    Now don’t forget: new goodies and new art coming tomorrow and Sunday, too! But I’d suggest grabbing some of the clearance items (with an additional 15% off) ASAP as they will not be around for long! Psst: these are HALLOWEEN items on clearance.
