Happy Halloween


Jack Skellington window decorations for halloween this year – low tech but easy to pack away. Jack was mainly cut with my Silhouette but since the size was limited I had to glue his hand and legs to make it large enough to fit our window. The rest was hand cut.
  
Not too shabby for teeth on a cavity-inducing night. We used a grapefruit spoon with its serrated edges to scrape in between the teeth, then the handle to smooth the surface. We also happen to have linoleum cutters to help remove the white layer so the candle can be seen better at night. The perfect “O” for the little pumpkin snack was made with an apple corer.
Here’s where we got our inspiration:

And lastly our bat cave, thanks to Dana-Made-It.
The witch brooms were signature Martha, Martha, Martha.

    Hey Cecelia! Awesome Halloween decorations. I need some advice on cutting machines. Angie mentioned you “researched the pants off these things”. I’m considering the new Silhouette Cameo…email me if you have the chance.

    I absolutely LOVEEEE that Nightmare Before Christmas scene! And gosh, it looks like I really need to work on my pumpkin carving skills, because the pumpkin I carved looks like a 6 year old carved it, especially compared to yours and so many others I’ve seen, lol.

    Holy cow. Amazing Halloween decorations. When my company has a pumpkin carving contest next year, can I copy your ideas ? :-). Our pumpkin was really lame this year.
