Haunted Halloween Birdhouses

I must confess- I started these last year and didn't get them finished in time for Halloween. But this year they are proudly displayed on my sofa table! These were a lot of fun to make.
 
To make your own, you will need miniature birdhouses, dowels, and small wooden plaques for bases. Mine came from Michaels.  You will also need wood glue, paint, skeletons, scrapbook paper, Mod Podge and plastic bugs if you like.
 
 
 
My sweet hubby drilled holes in the houses and the bases and set the dowel rods for me. Then I painted them with orange and black acrylic paint. Then the really fun part began. I decorated them with Mod Podge and scrapbook paper and various cut outs made using my Slice and the Spook Alley cartridge. I added some minature skeletons (taken from Dollar Tree garland) and mini plastic spiders.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm so glad I got these finished!
