Tealight Haunted Houses, New Collage Sheet, Sale & Free GIFT!

Filed under Collage Sheets, Halloween, Kristin Batsel, Nichola Battilana

There are TWO fun Halloween projects today, both using the Tealight Haunted House Kit with Base (and both decorated with round glass cabochons). I was inspired by both artworks so created a new Black & Orange Halloween Rounds Collage Sheet — and made a mini version of it as part of the new gift kit!

See the photo at right for the mini collage sheet (I included all 12 of the designs in the 12mm size, plus added a few of the 14mm size, and 2 each of the 18mm and 25mm diameter images). AND I’m including a 12mm glass cab and the Black Wood Frame for 12mm Round Cabochons shown in my hand in the gift!

The 12mm Halloween Cabs Gift Kit is FREE with all orders placed today through Saturday (ends at midnight September 3, 2022)!

Plus I made a new collection from the supply lists from both of today’s project — and put it all on Sale plus lots of bonus items, too! More info below (plus some popular miniatures are back in stock)!

Spooky Hallowe’en Candy Dish by Nichola Battilana!

I completely agree with Nichola on this one: How cute is that?!

Here’s a bit from Nichola’s blog post:

I made the candy dish using the Tealight Haunted House Kit with Base. Only I didn’t use the base as a base, I used it upside-down for something more important… candy corn (do not even try to debate me on the goodness of candy corn).

Not only is this project cute, but came together pretty quickly. Quick, easy and cute = extra awesome in my book.

I didn’t fiddle around with the house at all. I assembled it, added the window frames, applied a good coat of acrylic paint, then highlighted the frames in gold. To finish it off I added dresden trim, glass cabochon windows and wee plastic bat.

I love the gold paint on the window frames… it looks so rich (almost like gold leafing) but it’s just unevenly applied so the black underneath shows through a bit.

Here’s Nichola’s Hallowe’en Candy Dish Supply List.

Tiny 3D Haunted House by Kristin Batsel!

Kristin really adores Halloween… beside the extra Halloween projects she always volunteers for… her Halloween artwork is perfect!

Case in point: her Tiny 3D Haunted House. First of all, it’s made from the Tealight Haunted House Kit with Base; you can see mini photos at left and right (and that’s the back view at right… it has a big arch cut in the back facade to help with inserting a Tea Light).

See the “day and night” photo below: Kristin decided to paper over one of the 3 rectangular windows cut in the front so she could make a door (and I love that little “cobblestone” path through the grass to her door)!

And look at all the parts you get in this kit: it includes the platform and the fence pieces and the little tombstones! (Note: Kristin added a tutorial on how to paint the flat chipboard tombstones to give them a 3D appearance in her blog post!) Here’s a couple tips from that blog post:

The “stone” path in the front is cut from a cardboard egg carton. It’s got the perfect texture for pavers.

The windows in this little house are actually thin sheets of mica. Here in the front windows, I put the image of the child behind the mica, so it looks like she’s inside. The pumpkin is in front of the mica so it looks like it’s outside, sitting on the windowsill.

I used mica in the window because the house is designed to accommodate a tea light. When it’s dark, you can light it up and it looks so spooky!
