The Glam Witch, in all her glory!
I had an old dollhouse down at the antique mall that had been there for months. When I did this big reset of my space last week I decided I was done with it there and I was going to turn it into a haunted house.
Here is a photo of the house as I started to tape off the roof. I liked the dark gray slate color the roof was so I wanted to preserve it. Everything else I wanted black!
See. The lite green and red simply wouldn't do for a haunted house!
I am giving you a view from every angle so you can understand how much this needed to become a haunted house!
First coat of spray paint.
Ah ha! Haunted house base ready for embellishment!
So I found this little doll down at the antique mall and she was $5. Her eyes are kinda wild and her hair jet black so I just thought she'd make a great little witch. I remembered that I had that little cupcake topper jack-o-lantern bucket to hang off her arm and I found a tiny key to hang off the other arm. She ended up with a hand charm necklace as well. Lucky girl!
I made her the black hat out of construction paper. I added glitter trim, a silver star and feathers coming out the top. She is looking real witchy with her hat on!
Once I had the silver glitter out, it was all over! In the sense that I wanted to glitter-fy everything! So I added glitter trim to the house to give it some bling.
I added cheesecloth behind the windows and then glued in long black feathers. I added really small details that are hard to capture but I will try to show you. I had some agate beads that are black birds so I glued them above some of the windows. There is a bat hanging out in the eves, some spiders on the roof, a skull in a heart and limbs hanging in the windows!
The arm and leg charms are little Milagros from Mexico. They come in handy as spooky elements.
There just happens to be a lamp on behind the house so it gives the windows a nice glow.
"Why you call me Crazy Eyes?!"
Here is a view of the back. You can see how it all got painted black, wallpaper and all. If I don't sell this house soon I am going to be tempted to furnish all the rooms! Yes, I do have miniature vintage doll furniture. You know I do!
Watch out! She'll try to get ya! She has a bucket full of glitter and she isn't afraid to use it!
So that's the haunted house I have been working on. Upcycled, recycled, and repurposed. Good as new! I put a high price on the whole sh-bang for now because I wish I had the room to keep it and don't want to see it leave so fast but I will likely mark it down by next week if its still there.
Not a lot of sewing in the past few days. Worked on some baby gift items and have a lot of sewing projects planned but it all comes down to the amount of time I have to sew in one day, people. There just aren't enough hours!
Off to do some pasting,
