Using the Movable Monsters on CCR, I made a Halloween table decoration. Beetlejuice features a hanging skeleton, a vampire in his coffin, with several other featured characters from Happy Hauntings and October 31: a scarecrow, black cat, owl, flying bats and witch and sunflowers from Art Philosophy. I also used several Sizzix dies. The hat pattern come from splitcoaststampers. I also used many embossing folders to add additional detail.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Martha Stewart Holidays card stock

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Begin by making a base out of black cardstock cutting a 9" platter from Happy Hauntings. Cover base with black foam board and netting. Adhere a Tim Holtz Frame die cut. You will have three main areas to place objects on each side of the Frame. I chose to affix a branch tree Tim Holtz dies cut from grungeboard and embossed in woodgrain and painted dark brown. On second side, I affix the Sizzix mummy w/Tomb coffin in grungeboard and painted black and stained with white. On the third side add cobwebs and spiders with scarecrow from October 31 cartridge and attached sunflowers cut from Art Philosophy and affixed to the Frame. I also placed glass pumpkins that I purchased next to the scarecrow. In the area next to the branch tree, add the black coffin cut from Happy Hauntings cut at 4". Cut movable monster vampire and color with pearl paint to stand out from cuffin. Scatter area with bones cut from October 31, and add a pumpkin next to the tree cut from Happy Hauntings. Add a die cut car from Tim Holtz die cut and emboss with woodgrain and trim in aluminum. On the side with the mummy coffin, add a fence with a crow. Inside the fence add a piece of foam and place you 9" stick to hang your sign cut from Tim Holtz die cut and place Beetlejuice on sign printed from word processing. Affix an owl on the sign. Assemble a skeleton (Movable monsters) and hang skeleton from rope next to the Beetlejuice sign. I also added a bush, that was cut from Happy Hauntings and cut bats and attached them to the branches of the bush. Next to mummy coffin place a 3D branch tree embossed and colored brown. Place gears and pumpkins to decorate the areas.
I used CCR to cut my images. From Happy Hauntings I cut the 3D Platter in black with skull and crossbones as the base set at 9". Over the base I cut a 6" square and covered it was black netting. I cut double sets of the 3D tree in black at 2.5" and attached several black bats and hung the skeleton (movable Monsters) above the tree. The sign was a Tim Holtz die cut and added the label Beetlejuice to the sign. The sign was set in a piece of styrofoam painted dark green on a 9 "stick painted black to hang the sign. I also cut the 3D coffin in black set at 4" and embossed it with a wood grain folder from Happy Hauntings. I set inside the coffin the vampire (Movable Monsters) set at 4" with a red cap, black suit and white shirt and painted over in pearl accents to illuminate the vampire. I cut a 4" fense set to the side and cut a black car from Sizzix die and embossed it with the woodgrain and added aluminum trim. I cut ten flowers from Art Philosophy at 3', 2.5", 2", in two layers and added pearl accents and beaded centers. I used the Bigz die mummy w/tomb and embossed with woodgrain and painted it in black and gave it white highlights. I cut three Tim Holtz branch trees in grungeboard assembled two together for a 3D effect and painted dark brown. One tree is attached to the center die cut Tim Holtz frame cut from grungeboard and painted black. I place glass pumpkins around all sides of the display. The hat is cut from grungeboard and painted purple and embossed with cat and gears with orange eyelets and laced with orange string. To add strength to the stand, I purchased and placed six black blocks that spell SPOOKY under the stand. This took more than eight hours to assemble. I would rate the project as advanced.
