I wasn't sure if this should go under paper-crafts or what, but I made a halloween window silhouette! I got my cutting paper bug, but it wasn't snowflake season yet! This is all one piece of paper.

Some details!

(sorry this is sideways!)

All these little branches took friggin forever, but I think they are the best and most spooky part, so worth it.

From outside at night it glowed awesomely:

And here are the rest of my decorations for the halloween party--punch served out of the cauldron in my hearth:

my witchy mantel with lots of spooky things in glass!

Zombie brainz! Everyone loved this and so simple to make!

THis was my Laboratory (aka gin & tonic station) Tonic glows under black light, rose's lime in the test tubes, and gin in the beaker-thing.

Thanks for looking!

Wow. I can't even imagine having the patience to do that. It looks awesome! And the decorations for the party look equally awesome. I love the cauldron in the hearth!

 Shocked This is totally awesome  Grin

I love this - I can't imagine how long it must have taken but it is truly amazing!!!!

I couldn't pick a favorite part - the spooky tree or the grim reaper, or the noose, or the skeleton, or -you get the picture!
