Halloween Glitter House Minus The Glitter

Halloween Glitter House with fence

Hello everyone! It's been a busy few weeks around here. I have been involved in some projects around the house instead of working on little houses.  :)  But today I am sharing this Halloween house now that it is all finished.  This is another pattern by Howard Lamey. He is so generous in sharing patterns and techniques.  I was also inspired by the amazing Halloween houses by my friend and fellow blogger Lucy at With Glue and Glitter. I enjoyed creating this house - quite a departure from the Christmas themed houses I usually make.  This house has no glitter on it, just different paint effects - with the exception of the tiny Jack-o-lantern beside the door. Got to have a little glitter!

I enjoyed distressing the fence. I started with a store bought fence, took it apart, added some texture and then painted it with a little black and brown acrylic. 

I added some "moss" from the floral department at the craft store to the roof and the yard.

 This pic shows a close up of the roof. I cut some shingles from cardboard, painted them and then added some moss to the roof. This moss came in a flat sheet with a peel off backing that allows you to stick it on.  The adhesive was VERY strong! Sometimes it was difficult to get off my fingers but I like the effect.

I created the sconces on either side of the door from cardboard.  In this view you can see that they are dimensional.  I also added some texture to the purple paint for the door frame.

I used an orange velum for the door and window.  I like the way it glows when the house is lit up.
Overall this his turned out to be quite a fun project!  

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you found time to be creative this week.  :)
