Throw Back Thursday with my altered Skeleton and Birdhouse….to begin with I made an altered Skeleton and birdhouse for my mantle. I purchased my skeleton at our local Michael Store. I made his top hat by cutting the rim and the top from cardboard and covering it with paper. All of the paper I used for my project is from the Graphic 45 Happy Haunting Collection!!!! I love Graphic 45 and felt this was perfect for my Halloween decorations
I tied some torn, tie-dyed gauze to the brim of hat, added a large sunflowers, spiders, a large crow and some skeleton hands to the top of my hat. I had to add some metal to his face, so the washers and bat was a must.
Every fancy skeleton should have a fancy bow tie and of course a key to his heart along with spiders and webs.
Here is a closer look at my birdhouse….
I took the witch at the top of my birdhouse and placed her on chipboard before I fussy cut her out. I placed it to the front of my covered roof and added an accordian folded flower that the sun head fits on.
On the bottom of my birdhouse is some of the images that I cut from the paper and layered to the birdhouse. I added some Tim Holtz, 7 Gypsy and Graphic 45 metals to my project. Don’t you just love the wheels.
Here is one side of the birdhouse. I found these fun, glitter spiders at Michaels
Just a closer look at the bottom of this side.
The other side of the birdhouse.
Another close up of this side showing the how fun it is to fussy cut. It always gives depth to your projects.
Again, a use of stickers along with more metals.
Don’t you love the metal spider. I know I do. I hope you have enjoyed my Throw Back Thursday project and try altering yourself a birdhouse or dressing up a skeleton for Halloween. Hugs Pammejo
