Alison Osborn is an art director here at BlueMountain.com, and when she’s not creating beautiful eCards, she loves to put her crafting skills on display at home. We’ve shared some of her creativity in previous posts such as the surprise 70th birthday party she threw for her mother, as well as past craft roundups. Lucky for us, Alison especially loves decorating her home for Halloween, so we had to take a peak inside and share what we found!

1. Halloween Star
Decoupage scrapbook paper shapes on to a metal star. You can even sponge the edges of your paper shapes with paint before applying.
2. Marquee BOO Letters
Letters are from Heidi Swapp Marquee Love Collection. So easy, just paint and decoupage scrapbook paper. You can even add glitter, ribbons and more.
3. Witch Hats
Paint Paper Mache witch hat. Cut out scrapbook paper shapes to decoupage on to hat—a circle shape for the rim of the hat and paper strips to cover the cone horizontally. Dilute black acrylics to paint a wash over the hat. Add ribbon, acorns and paper cupcake flowers to decorate.
4. Trick or Treat Sign
Decoupage designer tissue paper on to canvas. White wash canvas then paint on black stripes. Letter “Trick or Treat” in black then in orange acrylic paints. Decorate with handmade fabric flowers.
5. BEWARE Banner
Glue orange, handmade fabric flowers on black canvas flags. You can also use canvas flowers or Halloween rosettes from local craft stores. Glue on glitter lettering.
