I could not buy anything because there are no Halloween minis around in my country
So I had to improvise with stuff from my stash of Halloween gifts I recieved over the years from my US and UK friends and "borrow" a few things from other projects and that is why I named it the beg, steal or borrow Halloween project.
The Hutch came from my stash and got a coat of grey paint. I used some printies I found on the net to decorate the back of sheleves with. I think that really adds a nice touch. It also makes the shelves look more full in case you do not have enough real items.
I "borrowed"a chocolate cake from another project and added a plastic skull. The skull got covered in 3 D snow paint and I also used that to make the arms, With some grated cork for earth and some green stuff from my box of floral stuff I think is looks pretty good.
Never knew that Fibre Fill from a pillow would make such great cobwebs till I saw this tip on a Halloween website and tried it for minis.
Pearl beads and a bit of blue and black paint made nice eye balls. I dropped them in a dish filled with red glass paint.
I think this shows that you can make a very easy and fun decoration in no time at all by just begging, stealing and borrowing !
