Pin-spired Monday: Haunted Treehouse


Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday. Ghosties, goblins, bat and cats, boney feet and witches hats. Who can resist?? Not me!

So off I went to Pinterest and this is what I found - a haunted house!


Which led me to create...
a haunted treehouse!

The treehouse itself is built with a Configuration cabinet, lined with papers from our Enchanted line. Once the sections are covered in paper and the edges covered with paper tape the real fun begins - creating each scene!

The Apothecary's Shoppe is my favorite. I loved mixing potions and poisons for these tiny bottles.


All of the potion bottles have labels made with stickers from the Enchanted collection.  
I used a combination of different things to fill each one. 

~ Allow 24 hours for the bottles that use Glossy Accent in them to set properly. ~
~ Sand and distress the stickers before adhering them to the bottles for extra creepiness ~ 
~ Rub ink on the corks to make those look older too ~

~ Potion Recipes ~

"Slate" alcohol ink
Glossy Accent
cat litter
~ pour a small amount of Glossy Accent in the bottle and add cat litter. 
~ twist and turn the bottle to mix and coat the inside of the glass
