Home Decor - Halloween

This week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is to make a home decor project with a fall or Halloween theme. These types of projects are challenging for me because I spend most of my crafting time making cards. It was good to step out of my box, though I'm not sure I'm 100% happy with the outcome.

I painted a 6x6 canvas with some purple paint. There is a black mat behind the patterned DCWV paper. The bird was cut from the same black solid paper. The patterned paper is raised away from the black paper with foam tape. The bird is also on foam tape. The bird is from the October 31st cartridge and was cut at 3 1/2". I did put a scrap of yellow behind the eye to make it stand out (plus it upped the creepy factor quite a bit!). 

One of the things I like about these particular canvases is that they are quite deep so I can hang this if I want to, or I can set it on a shelf/table. It makes for a more versatile piece.

I hope you are inspired by someone's project this week and decide to join us for this challenge. 


  1. Cute Halloween decor. Love how you made it.

  2. This is great! The yellow eye does up the spooky factor! I also love that it can set on a table or hang on the wall!

  3. I think your canvas turned out terrific! Great work!! I like the papers you used and the brads were the perfect touch!!
