Spool Plinth Halloween Bottles


Mandy here sharing a Halloween themed project for August.

I created this project by altering a large wooden spool, altered with Lindys Stamp Gang Embossing Powder in "midnight copper", black lace by Papermania, sprayed white lace with "squeezed orange" by Dylusions.

The box part was created with thick cardboard/chipboard, I made a box that measures 4.5" x 2" x 3".
I painted both sides before I glued it together while flat with black craft paint.  I used Graphic 45's "An Eerie Tale" to cover both sides.  I created a scallop edge for the bottom with some purple paper from this collection too and a top pelmet with covered chipboard using  the "ornate" large die by Tim Holtz.

The top was covered with Prima flowers, a clock paperclip also by Prima and a skull.  The inside was done by filling a large glass bottle with a broken up skeleton and by colouring some Glossy Accents with "fired brick" Distress Ink reinker.  This was dripped over the bottle for a bloody effect.  I also filled a small bottle with the reinker.  I layered over paper labels using the embossing powder and tags from the paper collection.  Some black lace was used along with black gems to embellish.

I hope you liked this project and it inspires you to start your Halloween preparations.  Thank you for looking.  I have included a video on the kit I played with for this project so you can see the product that is available in the Cardz'n'Scrapz shop in more detail.
