As a finale to my week of Halloween tags I decided I was going to decorate a cardboard house I found at a local craft store. This project took a bit longer than I thought but I love how it turned out! I hope you have enjoyed the week of Halloween tags! If you want to go back and see all the Halloween tags in one place you can do that here.
I just love these Cosmo Cricket chipboard shapes! And I'm not just saying that because they posted one of my tags on their blog!
I didn't do a tutorial for this house but just to give a run down on what I did - I painted the entire house black first (yes I finally went out and bought black craft paint!) I then covered the roof in white vintage buttons - this took me HOURS - seriously way too long! (side note - I used glossy accents to adhere the buttons - this stuff is an amazing adhesive!). I then cut out strips of paper - cut into rectangles - inked each piece and adhered them to the front of the house - YES those are tiny rectangles of paper - and YES I am crazy because that took HOURS as well! I then added the trees (which i found on clearance at a local craft store) and the Cosmo Cricket chipboard pieces and there you have it!
