Halloween Spider House

Hey everybody!
 
 
I used Eileen Hull's really adorable Sizzix ScoreBoard XL Birdhouse 3D die.

 
This is how my little "bird" house changed into a Halloween Spider House.
 
Sorry if it "creeps you out!"
 
We start with plain old chipboard, Metal Foil Tape with sticky backing, and Vintaj Patinas.
 
The Patinas are perfect for applying to metal. Here I used them on the DARK side of Cut-n-Dry foam. It's less absorbent than the WHITE side and really makes a smooth application.

 
First I ran a few pieces of metal through the Vagabond using a couple of Halloween Texture Fades.
 
Then I started adding different colors of the Patinas with a thin amount of the ink. If you get too much on it will seep into the embossed areas.

 
This shows how I added just a very thin line on the foam. You need to re-ink  it several times per color as it dries very fast.

 
I used the lighter colors first, and then added the darker colors over the edges where the color meets.
 
I heat set for a few seconds. Don't torch it or the glue on the back won't like it. And remember...METAL GETS HOT WHEN YOU HEAT IT!
 
I'm just sayin'.....you don't want to BRAND yourself.
 
 
Find the sections you like best from your pieces. This is one of the sides.

Trace around the sections of your embossed metal, cut out the shape, and add it to the house. I cut my metal about 1/8" smaller so the black edges create a frame.


 
This shows how I  run a Chisel Tip Sharpie marker around all the edges making a large border. This will make your colors pop and give you room to bend your chipboard.
 
I also edge the metal with the Sharpie.
 

 
Trace the birdhouse hole onto the backing paper for that piece. I used a hole punch slightly larger to keep with the black framing around each side of the house.


 
I cut the piece for the roof leaving the cute scalloped edges alone so I could add Stickles to them.

 
 Next you add Wonder Tape to the edges per the Sizzix instruction information.
 
This is how the house looks with all the metal, and with the Wonder Tape added.
 
I also added some Alcohol Ink to the "31" Plaquette, punched holes, and added it with brads before I put the house together.
 
 
The Spiders are easy to attach with black foam squares.
 
So there you have a fun little house. Make a Village or add a name on the front as a Place Card for a Halloween Dinner.
 
Put a piece of Fishing Line through a hole in the middle of the roof line and hang it from your Studio lamp. I have several on my lamp of different sizes, shapes and styles!
