A Halloween House.....
Friday night at my house was Stamp Club night - and my birthday!! So I took two of my favourite things - stamping and Halloween - and put them together! I had black and orange balloons tied to the fence out the front, light up Halloween pumpkins scattered around the yard, the front door was festooned with fake spiderwebs and spiders, the door was decorated with a handmade black wreath made from a garbage bag and a gorgeous purple spider, there was Halloween lollies from the U.S. in cute little Halloween bowls and my kids dressed up as a friendly witch and the ghost face from the Scream movies to greet them as they arrived....it was a bit of fun, and they enjoyed it!!
I saw a pic on pinterest about a garbage bag wreath - so easy to do!
Just few samples with some of the Halloween lollies...
(forgive the walls - we are prepping to paint )
And our project for the night was this really cute little Halloween House Luminaria. If I'd had time during the week I would've cut out a lot more than I did, and just have the girls put it all together, but with school holidays, birthdays, the Royal Show and assorted other activities, time just flew! So the girls ended up doing a lot of the work themselves and it took them a while lol!! Two of them have since gone home and made more of the houses, some of them Christmas themed, so I didn't scare them off to much haha! Here they are:
Here is a closeup of the first one I made:
How cute are they?? There are three house windows, one door window and three roof windows which all let the battery tealight shine through, looks so cute in the dark! How cute is the little broom?? That's my favourite part of the house!
So I am offering this little house as a class! I will do ALL of the cutting out, all you will need to do is assemble it, which will cut down on time and effort considerably! There is no hot glue involved, but it is fiddly, so this class will be child-free. I will supply everything you need, you just come along and have fun! Bring a friend, and if they are new to me, you will get a free gift! If you get between 3 and 5 friends together, and book a class with me, your class will be FREE!! How's that for an offer!! Here are the details:
Class is a prepaid $40 pp - prepayment guarantees your spot, as spots are strictly limited to 6.
You can choose the colour of your house - exceptions may apply - so ask for your colour choice when you book!
There can't be last minute attendees as supplies will need to be ordered and I will need time to make up all of the kits.
Refunds cannot be offered as supplies will have been paid for - but you are welcome for someone else to take your spot if you can't make it, otherwise you will be able to collect your kit to assemble yourself at another time.
For your comfort and the comfort of others, children are unable to attend for any reason. You are welcome to host a class in your home if you need to look after children, but this class is for adult participation only.
The date of the class is Wednesday 24th October at 10.30am and repeated on Thursday 25th October at 10.30 am. RSVP is essential , and no later than Monday 15th of October by 6pm. This is to allow the ordering of the goodies and the making up of kits.
If you would prefer another date, feel free to get some friends together, or just you and a friend if you prefer and I can even come to you!
If you have any questions about this class, feel free to contact me! I would love to chat with you!!
I had a great time sharing this project with my stamp club ladies, and I would love to share it with you! Hope to hear from you soon :)
Until next time,
So we have a new catalogue out today, did you hear about it? So of course Stampin' Up! is going to spoil us with more goodies ...
