CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Foam core board
  • X-Acto Knife
  • Adhesive (glue & foam tape)
  • Brick embossing folder
  • Colorbox Ink
  • Paint (browns black)
  • landscape moss
  • quilt thread
  • Toothpicks
  • Clear distress crackle paint
  • Chip board
  • Brick red distress ink
  • Hot glue gun

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Using Happy Hauntings cut the tree at 10" out of chipboard. Traced onto foam core board and then cut using a craft razor knife. Paint the tree with brown acrylic paint and shade using black and a lighter brown. Once the paint is dry go over it with clear rock candy distress crackle paint.
Using Happy Hauntings cut two sets of four tombstones at 3". Place a piece of foam core board between the front and back stones to add depth.
To create the two vaults cut the tombstones at 4". Place a piece of foam tape between the front and back headstones (foamcore was too difficult to cut around the cross).

Make a foot stone by using the bottom portion of the tombstone only. For the center of the vault cut a piece of cardstock 3" x 2 1/2", scored at 1" and 2" turn a quarter turn and then score at 1/4" along both ends. Emboss the cuts using a brick texture and ink with brick red distressed ink. Form the piece to fit the head and foot stones to create the vault.
Cut skeletons from Happy Hauntings at 4". For the backside of the skeletons flip the cuts and hide all facial contours.

To make them moveable/poseable I adhered the front and back pieces together with a piece of off white quilt thread between the bones/body pieces.
Cut the top half of the mummy and zombie bodies from Moveable Monsters at 2". Again use the quilt thread (instead of brads) to make the pieces poseable.

At the bottom half of the bodies cut a toothpick in half and glue between papers. This will enable you to insert the pieces into the foam core board.
To make the base of the centerpiece: adhere a section of the moss landscape mat to a piece of foamcore board using a hot glue. The tree was glued to the center of the square. To create the graves cut four pieces of the moss landscape, fold it in thirds and glue all edges. Hot glued into place
Place the skeltons, mummies and zombies as desired, gluing the necessary sections to keep them in place.
