Easy Weekend Project from Simply Handmade

Decorating your home for Halloween is a chance to set a spooky mood for the holiday. Going handmade not only gives your d├ęcor a cozy, homespun feel, it’s often a great way to save some money – especially if you use supplies you already own.

If you still need a little something for a shelf or table to finish off your Halloween decorating this year, take on this simple weekend project, a fabulous triptych by Hilary Kanwischer that is featured in the October-November issue of Simply Handmade. Turn to page 30 in the book for step-by-step photos, or use these sneak-peek instructions to put your own Halloween triptych together.

1. Cut six 2 ½ x 3 ½” pieces of chipboard, paint them white, let dry. Distress the edges with brown ink and some sanding.

2. Stamp a flourish and Halloween sentiment on each piece of chipboard.

3. Lay three of them face down about 3/8” apart, glue ribbon across the back, and sandwich the other three pieces on top to create your base. Knot the ribbon ends for a finished look.

4. Embellish with pre-made white picket fences from Michaels (or you could use craft sticks that you’ve painted white and fasted together with thin jewelry wire), big chipboard letters spelling “boo”, rub ons, stamped and cut out Halloween images, or whatever other accents you have on hand.

5. Stand the decoration up by angling the pieces slightly. Because the back is finished, you have more display options.
