Halloween Inspiration Day 3 - Shadow Box

Welcome to Day 3 of the 7 Days of Halloween Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew". We’re just a group of online crafty friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 7 day event to provide you with tons of Halloween Inspiration.

At the bottom of this post is a list of all the crafty ladies participating in this event. Visit all the blogs each day for loads of fun Halloween craft ideas, and a lot of fun prizes along the way!


Today I'm sharing a Halloween shadow box. I was inspired by Erin Madsen's amazing shadow box she made for DCWV and wanted to create my own! 

The base of the shadow box is actually the shipment container for Prima wood veneers. I painted it black and splattered it with white paint. I cut squares from DCWV "Spooky Time" paper pads and decorated each one. Most of the images (bats, skulls, 'boo', eyes) are just fussy cut from the Spooky Time paper. All squares were put in the shadow box with foam adhesive.

Now hop on over to these talented ladies to see what they have in store today!
