Halloween Altered Bird House

Halloween is always a fun time for decorating.  So I decided to take out a wooden birdhouse that I got at Michael's over a year ago. Just in case the bare wood was going to poke out I painted all the edges black.  After that I went to town making myself a template, for all the pieces.

To decorate my little birdhouse I cut out the fun papers from the Happy Haunting paper pack from My Mind's Eye. Then edged all the edges with black ink.
I created these fun doors and WoW they look amazingly real!  The twin skeletons were part of some of the card stock, so I cut them out and attached them so they look like they are opening the doors.
I made some bats and some adorable little spiders. (can spiders be adorable?)  I found a cool looking clock and printed it out, cut it out, distressed it then covered it with glossy accents.  Cool, huh?
I added a strip of acetate to one of the bats then attached it to the back side of the doors so it would look as if it is flying out of the house. I also used the acetate to create the windows.  Using some acetate on top of orange cardstock then used strips of black to make the panes.
  This side of the roof was craving a scary big momma.
This is the back of the house, don't cha love the window treatments?  I added some cobwebs and a black cat. When my house was complete I added some little ball feet and a few more spiders.
Pretty cool, huh?!
