Halloween Silhouettes


I worked on a little Halloween project last night. I saw something like this in a shop and figured this section of my bookcase would be perfect. They had lined the back of their shelf with orange paper, but I figured the red would be close enough.
I made a tissue paper moon and taped it in front of the light. Then I cut silhouettes of creepy stuff out of thin plastic and spray painted them black. You could use thin cardboard too. I also painted some little fence sections from the craft store. I quickly stuck it on the shelf and took this photo. I hope to add a graveyard scene too. And a scary cat. I'll show that when it's done.
I just love Halloween and all the creepy decorations associated with it. Over the years I've collected rats, bats, crows, caldrons, pots of fire, tombstones, spiders, cockroaches, skulls, and pumpkins. I'll show you some of it in the next few weeks.
