|Creak 'n' Shriek Collection from Bird's SVGs|
Not only does this project go together very easily, Bird's assembly tutorial has several helpful tips along the way, including one suggestion for avoiding wrinkly vellum on such a large piece. Honestly, I love listening to both Bird's accent and her handy tips and therefore watch all of her videos even if I have a pretty good idea how things go together!
I followed Bird's suggestion and used some antique gold Rub and Buff wax to highlight my pieces and it really has a fantastic effect. You can see it much better in this picture. I love the worn, vintage look this added to the piece.
On the base of the luminary, I added some dried Spanish moss to make it look like this crypt was a bit overgrown. I used some antique gold brads to the RIP plaque.
Last but not least I decided that a black rose with some gold wax highlights was the perfect finishing touch.
I've really been enjoying looking at my creepy coffin luminary every night. It's just so cool!
Be sure to check out the full collection from Bird's SVGs - there are several amazing projects for Halloween. I think the pop-up bat card might be next on my list.
Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think.
