Halloween


Halloween Toxic Treat Boxes

I'm a big fan of Halloween and while the cute versions of Halloween characters are fun to craft with, it's the eerie, spooky side of things that I love! Luckily my kids are finally old enough for the fake spiders and skeletons I've been dreaming of decorating with. I like my decorations spooky and creepy without going overboard or giving anyone a month of nightmares. These Halloween Toxic Treat Boxes will make the recipient think twice before gobbling up the goodies and are a quick enough project to make in multiples. Use the Halloween silhouette borders on scrapbook pages as well.

Hanging Halloween Mobile

We wrapped up our Haunt Your House series last week and after four weeks of Halloween home décor it is hard to stop the creative wheels from turning. Pazzles Owner and Designer Holly put together one more project to share with you today, a hanging Halloween mobile. This mobile looks more time consuming than it is and it is easy to assemble. It makes a stunning statement hanging among your other Halloween decorations and is a great project for using up scraps of paper.



Spiders Halloween Wreath

I always have a lot of fun creating projects, but something about this one had me buzzing around the office chasing people with these super cute glittery, hairy legged spiders!! Don’t exterminate these bugs! Instead, lavish guests with spooky fun the moment they step up to the door. They’re bound to get caught up in your web of creativity when you host your spooky Halloween party get together. Let the smiles and maybe even a few frightful screams begin… when you have this spider wreath hanging ready to greet all who dare enter!


Halloween Shadow Box Tray

Inspired by the fun paper collection Steam Punk Spells by Graphic 45 and the Authentique Enchanted Halloween Collection, I decided to decorate a shadow box tray with Halloween pictures and several cutting files. All the cutting files can be found in the Pazzles Craft Room Library. To decorate the top of my shadow box tray I used the Flourish Hardware file backed by chipboard and to accent the flourish I added some sequins for some sparkle. I cut out the Spooky cutting file to add on top of the spider web coaster.


Spiderweb Cupcake Wrappers and Stand

Spider Web Cupcake Stand And ...

Halloween decorations are popping up all over and party plans are in full swing. What words come to your mind when you think of Halloween? I think: black and orange, spider webs and bats, pumpkins and, of course, sweet treats! I thought it would be fun to combine my favorite Halloween themes into a spooky cupcake stand that will make your party treats look "spook-ta-cular"!



Eerie Victorian Wall Hanging

Add an eerie, yet elegant look to your Halloween decor' this year. This Eerie Victorian Wall Hanging will look great hanging anywhere in your home, even the formal dining room or living room. I cut out Pazzles Iron On using the gold and white from the solid pack. When I applied it to the Velvet Canvas from Canvas Corp, I found I needed to support it a little from the back, so I used a box behind it to help. I put the gold on first, then added the white. For more instructions on using the iron on, I recommend watching this Iron It On video.



Autumn Harvest Collection

This collection pulls together the best of the season in this fall-inspired set of titles, cute characters, beautifully detailed images, and even a dimensional gift box.



Make Your Own Tags

You have got to love tags! The are such a simple idea and yet they can add so much to a project. Tags can stand alone on a gift or be the accent to a card or page. They can be made plain and simple out of solid or print cardstock or they can be over-the-top with layers of paper and dimensional flowers. Whether the tag is basic or elaborate they all start with a simple shape. Maybe that is why we love them....they are so uncomplicated.


Candy Corn Bug Bag

Candy Corn Bug Box

You may have seen this cute little Candy Corn Bug in the New Images folder. When I designed him, I immediately knew that I was going to have to include him in a project. He is just too precious to pass by! I backed his wings in vellum to give them a fairy-like feel. This Candy Corn Bug Box project is probably not quite a 15-Minute Project, but it is really close! It depends on how much inking and decorating you want to do.


‘Boo To You’ Halloween Treat ...

A mason jar full of chocolate eyeballs in a cute carrier. If you think your friends are in need of some chocolate eyeballs as well, then this project is for you.



Haunted House Mansion

Haunted Village Part 4: Haunted ...

I have to admit that I am a little sad that this Haunted Village project has come to an end. It has been a lot of fun to work on. The team effort has been worth it and we all want to do group projects more often. It has also made me grow in my dimensional engineering skills!


Halloween Spooky Cemetery Overlay Card

Spooky Cemetery Card

I’ve been really excited watching our Haunted Village come to life. I loved the spooky cemetery so much that I decided to create my own! Whether you need a card, overlay, or spooky invite to your next monster mash, this 15 Minute Project is for you!


Haunted Village Part 3: Creatures ...

It has been an exciting process putting together our Haunted Village—I can’t wait to see what pieces we come up with next. We've had fun creating these monsters for you. Chris was making each of the monster noises as she glued them together. The rest of the Pazzles staff has enjoyed playing with our village as well. I know this, because each time I go in to take a quick peek at everything, it’s been rearranged! It got me thinking, if adults are enjoying playing with the Haunted Village I can’t imagine how much fun all the kids are going to have. After all, with projects this cool it kind of turns us all into kids… our office staff is proof!



Quick and Easy “Boo” Banner ...

This started off as a quick 15 minute project but in true Pazzles fashion, it turned out to be much more! We loved these pre-cut canvas shapes from Canvas Corp and knew just what to make with them. We started the project by creating candy corn pieces using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and a vinyl masking stencil cut with the Pazzles Inspiration.


Haunted Villiage with Graveyard, Trees, Headstone, Fence, and Horseless Hearse

Haunted Village Part 2: The ...

I must admit that when we were talking about the Haunted Village, that I put in 'dibs' on the graveyard. I hope you enjoy putting together the graveyard, trees, and fence to add fun to your Haunted Village. I have given you some different epitaphs and names to put on the headstones. Don't forget, you can create your own epitaphs, so be sure to have fun and personalize your project.


Haunted Village: Backdrop

It is no secret that the Halloween season is upon us. Haunted House attractions are springing up in the community, neighbors are stringing spider webs in the yard and costumes are occupying a prime location in the stores. This year we thought it would be fun to create a 3D Halloween Village. Each week, for the next four weeks, you will get another part of the diorama. It will be designed so you can fold it up and store it away for Halloween next year. After you put all the loving details into your project you will definitely want to use it again!



Dr. Seuss Day

All over the country, kids are celebrating the Birthday of Dr. Seuss. We have been enjoying his books since I was a little girl- which is a REALLY long time ago! The first book I ever read was 'Green Eggs and Ham'. I also have fond memories of reading his silly rhyming books with our kids before bed. (Although, I have to admit that some of them didn't really settle the kids down to sleep!) My grandkids could dress up like Dr. Seuss characters for school today and I was, of course, thrilled when my daughter asked me to help with the costumes.


Mad Scientists!

Happy Halloween!! We hope you are well prepared for a night filled with trick or treaters, scary movies, adorably spooky costumes, and of course candy! Here at Pazzles we thought we'd celebrate Halloween by sharing our mad scientists with you. I often refer to them as "the techie guys" but I think the term "mad scientists" applies quite well. In fact after seeing them at the Pazzles Retreat I don't think I can think of them as anything else! Get this cutting file in the library!


Dimensional Haunted House

Children of all ages love the idea of a haunted house for Halloween. The younger ones take a special delight in pumpkins and ghosts; just as long as they are not too scary. This dimensional haunted house can be as scary or cute as you want it to be. I have created one that is definitely on the cute side, but you could change the props and add spider webs, bats and monsters to make it more creepy. I will let your imagination take care of the details. :)



Boo! Pop Up Card

Halloween is the perfect occasion for Pop Up Cards. After all, you almost expect spooky things to pop out and surprise you. Pop up cards are not hard to make and add an extra dimension of fun to the card. If you have a grandchild who lives far away, a pop up card will remind them of how much you love them. Of course, pop up cards can be used for any occasion and can turn a ho-hum card into a "Wow, would you look at that!" card.


Witch’s Brew

Halloween has become less about the candy over the years and more about the food, and good friends at our parties. I always like to bring the hostess of the event a little surprise and I thought this would be a perfect gift for our Halloween get together this year. What a great way to dress up a bottle of sparkling apple cider or your favorite bottle of wine to go along with all the goulish snacks and dips. I even included some wine tags with some cute sayings on them so that you don’t lose your glass at the party. It’s another great way to customize your glasses with either your guest’s names, or just to put a smile on their faces. “Witch”ever you decide to make, I hope you and your friends enjoy a very spooky, Happy Halloween!


Make a Simple Luminary

Luminaries have been a common Halloween and Christmas decoration for decades. It isn't hard to understand why. They are easy to make and can create an eerie glow for Halloween or a warm holiday welcome for Christmas. Traditionally they were intended to line the sidewalk as a greeting leading up to the front door. Usually they were made from plain paper bags filled with sand to weigh them down and a candle provided the light. While the luminaries in today's lesson are for the indoors only, they make an easy, spooky greeting for the Halloween season.
