Confession: I have a thing for Halloween. I don't know if it's because it's a week after my birthday, or the childlike fun of it, or the creepy-cool elements, but it's definitely on my shortlist of favorite holidays. Those spooky elements (minus spiders) really tickle my fancy. As such, I'm often picking up craft supplies post-Halloween then stashing them away for a year to forget about them until the next All Hallow's Eve. I decided to break out some of those supplies before I forgot about them again and create a fun little decor piece.
You can watch all the steps I took to create DIY Stamped Halloween Lamp on YouTube.
Here, I'll just show you some of the pictures of the results and give you a little info about how I made the lamp.matte black paint. Then, I traced a template of the inside of one of the sections and cut it out so I would know what size of a stamp would fit in them. stamping platform and Staz-On Ink to stamp them onto off-white cardstock. watercoloring the outside of each of the images. Once the watercolors were dry, I tore out the images in a similar shape as the template I had cut. Distress Oxide in Black Soot and blended in. Then, I used sparkly sprays in Gold and Silver to add a shimmer to them.
Then, I punched holes at the top and bottom of each paper and used twine/yarn to tie them to the frame.
I also inserted a battery-operated candle into the tension bars inside the lampshade so that I can light it up!
The colors don't show up in the dark so that the paper looks like something similar to stretched skin (for that uber-creepy factor.)
Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about this project.
Have a Happy Halloween!
