"Spooky Hollow" House

Good Morning!!!!!!
It is that time of year when the pumpkins, scarecrows, witches and broomsticks come out of their boxes to decorate the front yard.  I quickly put together a witches house that I am going to share with you.  The house itself is made from very strong cardboard which I found at Micheal's.  I thought it was really cute so I decided to decorate it for Halloween.
I  first painted the entire house with black gesso. I then added various Halloween items that I found in a sale bin - a witch's hat on the chimney, a couple of large green sparkly spiders, pumpkins and a weird-looking bobble tree (I think that is what it is called).  Anyway here is the completed house.

I applied large art stones (Finnibair) onto the front of the house and painted them in rust and browns.  I wanted it to look like a fungus or worts were growing on the house.  I added a bat to the window which is a sticker and  upside down sticker foot on the left side of the door. As you can see I adhered yellow cardstock to the windows on the inside.
I adhered the witches hat onto the roof just on the right side of the chimney.  Some pumpkins here and there and the bobble tree on the left side.
A couple of closeups are below.
Front of the house

 I added a sticker foot and some pumpkins to the hat for colour.

This is the left side of the house.  The spider web I drew on with silver stickles. I also put webs on the fron of the house and right side. I hope you can see the large green spider on the roof and another one at the back side of this section.

And there you have it.  Until next time,
this is Donna wishing you a safe and spooky Halloween night of fun.
