Haunted Mansion Holiday... New Halloweenie!
Haunted Mansion Holiday!
We are leaving this morning for George's birthday trip to Disneyland. This will be our first trip since March...I know! We usually go once a month or so...that's how crazy we are! This time of year the park is all decked out for Halloween. I am hoping to get some inspiration for my "Haunted Mansion Holiday" theme I want to do in my office. I've made a couple of things I can show you...just know it's a work in progress...
Desk top décor...just getting started.
The banners are made from a Halloween version of the Haunted Mansion wallpaper. I hope to make a shadowbox scene based on "Nightmare Before Christmas." I picked up a cool cemetery gate yesterday at Joann. The store is selling Christmas and Halloween fairy garden accessories...with fun miniatures.
Each pennant has a Disney Halloween picture. This one's so cute!

"Wicked Witch Treat Shoppe"
My friend Lynn from the "Weinee Ranch" blog sent me a bunch of craft supplies one day. This hideous witch head was included in the package. I love it! I bought a small carve-able pumpkin at Dollar tree and decided to make it into some kind of shadow box. I don't know how I got the idea to make it into a candy shop...it kind of designed itself. It's hard to find miniature candy that isn't Christmas colored, but I found some suckers and some candy-shaped buttons at Hobby Lobby. The candy bars I made myself with little pieces of wood meant for doll-house shingles. They are about 1 inch in length.

Not quite to scale...but who cares, right?
Trick or Treaters Beware!
I wanted to show a few more new Halloweenies...but it's time to go. I will have more things to share when I get back from the Happiest...Halloween...Place on Earth!
