Haunted Mansion Shadow Box!
Haunted Mansion...How it appears in dreams.
Can you believe how quickly the month of October has passed? It's practically half over! I will soon be packing up my Halloween crafting supplies and moving on to Christmas. I have a lot of gifts and such that I have committed myself to making this year. I want to start giving more meaningful gifts. My most treasured gifts in the past have been those that are hand-made.
I still have a few Halloween topics that I want to blog about...so I will try not to get into Christmas before the Haunted Mansion clock strikes thirteen! I finally finished putting together the little Disney Halloween display in my office.
Haunted Mansion Holiday...
Jack Skellington welcomes guests to his Haunted Mansion Holiday.
Shadow box was a wooden tray.
Handles became windows.
Not seen are the teal shutters on the outside...like at Disneyland.
Putting the scene together.
I found the figures at Disneyland in the toy department of the Emporium.
I bought another set of Snow White figures for a Fairy Garden.
A fun little display to brighten my office!
Target Dollar Spot Craft....
I must have bought every one of these cute wooden signs at my Target.
I almost passed them by until I got the idea to decorate the unpainted back sides.
Wa La! Vintage Post Card Billboards.
I haven't done it yet...but you can make these into billboards that will fit into a Department 56 Halloween Village. Just add a dowel or two and a base to make it balance.
Some painted stacked spools would work as well.
Two Posts in One Day!
I am on a Roll!
Note: Since horizontal postcards are harder to find...I have included a few of my favorites...enjoy!
