    Halloween Tableaux by Kristin Batsel!

    Wow! Kristin really knows how to Halloween!

    It’s Halloween season! Because I can never have too much Halloween decor, or do too much Halloween crafting, I had a blast making these tableaux to celebrate my favorite spooky holiday. Large Spiderweb Mirrors with Frames are the perfect backdrop for each scene. All they need is a little stand; easy to make with some foam core and tissue paper. I’ll show you how at the end of my post.

    What’s Halloween without candy and costumes? You’re invited to a Spook Party! For that tableaux on the left, I layered a cat head image on top of a black medallion and a gold medallion, and then could not help but add an extra paper medallion (tutorial on making the paper medallion can be found here). I wanted this scene to be busy and fun, so it features some happy kids, lots of candy, a couple of jack o’lanterns, and a colorful resin witch’s hat.

    I love these! Beautiful work, Kristin!

    Here’s Kristin’s supply list and you can see more photos and a tutorial on making those stands in her blog post!
