I picked up a black printer's tray at Michael's a few weeks ago. I knew immediately that I was going to give it some Halloween touches. And boy, did I!
Score one for me that it was already black. Not painting here, yay! And even better? I had everything I needed to get busy.
Lots going on here. First I glued some vintage dictionary book pages and creepy cardstock to each slot.
Then the fun really began. I dug out random Halloween-appropriate items that could easily fit. The Halloween and Spooky flashcards I made a couple of weeks ago. The creepy bottles are also from a previous project.
I stole the yucky bugs from my son (sssh, don't tell him!).
A skull sticker I made from an image bought from Etsy, and a French flashcard. Craindre means "to fear" in French.
Spooky + poison bottle = so perfect for Halloween.
Can't forget the skull and crossbones. The stickers - including the 31 - are from a Tim Holtz set I bought a few months.
My only complaint, is there is no way to hang the tray the way it is now. Easy solution: I'm going to hot glue soda can tabs to the back so I can string some black seam binding to hang it up.
