another early Halloween craft ~All Hallows {eek} boxes

even {MORE} BOXES! These were again three un-finished boxes that were purchased at the dollar tree. I had this vision for them and could hardly wait to make them, so when the sis came recently we got busy. My sis said that we should add polka dots to the boxes.. HELLO, heck yeah! I had already purchased polka dot ribbon so we just did the polka dots on two of the boxes. SQUEAL…. I MEAN “eek”!!!! DO YOU LIKE?

After you paint the boxes with acrylic paint and add your polka dots… you will then do the glitter. HERE ARE THE BASIC steps for the glitter.
I also thought that it would be cute to add something sitting on the top. I found two cute blinking skull’s with crow’s at Tai Pan Trading for $2.39. The skulls eyes change colors…. It is just sitting on top, so it can be taken off if I choose.

so here is the RE-CAP Of OUR LOVELY CRAFTY DAY! P.S. this is my FIRST Halloween craft I have made this year. The other two I have shown were ones I made last early fall.  There will be more!

HAPPY “FALL” CRAFTING! and thanks for stopping by!
