Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares & Micro Squares
Glue Arts 3D Combo Pack
Cricut Expresssion
Cricut Happy Hauntings, October 31st Cartridges
Echo Park Paper Happy Halloween Collection
Tim Holtz Crackle Paint - Black Soot
Tattered Angels Shimmer Spray - Candlelight, Graphite
Wood Birdhouse Hobby Lobby
Martha Stewart Icicle Punch
Colorbox Chalk Inks
Stickles Red
Grey Paint


1) First paint all the areas that will be exposed with grey paint. Brush some grey lightly onto the black areas of the birdhouse. (some of the birdhouse was already painted black).
2) Next cover the birdhouse with the Echo Park Papers. Adhere using Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro Extreme Adhesive to assure good adhesion to the house. Use border punch for a drippy looking edge and add to house.
3)Once the house is covered it's time to create the cemetery scene using the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge. You'll need to cut images in black and grey cardstock to create the dimensional look. Add inks, Shimmer spray and touches of Stickles glitter to enhance and embellish. Glue Arts 3D Combo pack foam sheets are an absolute necessity for making and layers these items.   

4) Once you have the pieces cut start to adhere to the house using Glue Arts 3D Combo pack foam and the Extreme Adhesive Mirco and regular squares.
 5) Add fun details such as use Stickles to glitter on the eyes on the skull papers. Add more bit of Shimmer Sprays on and around the house as you continue to build it to give it that spooky look!
   6) Glue Arts 3D Combo pack makes it easy to add layered items. Simply cut the foam to fit...ghosts, banners...gives added dimension and adheres perfectly! And now you have one amazing decoration for around your house!!
