Halloween Village Combining Villiage, Bungalow, and Manor Tim Holtz Dies, Moss, Popsicle Sticks, and lots of Embellishments
Every building has 1-5 battery powered tea lights - I combined several of Tim Holtz' Village dies (including Vintage Village, Village Bungalow, Village Brownstone, Village Manor, Village Rooftops, Village Bell Tower) to create my own version of a haunted village. Also used his Cobblestone, Gothic Gate, On the Fence), and Sizzix Where Women Cook Box House Die.
Used 4 Vintage Village houses, 2 Manor toppers and the Manor door, 2 of the Bungalow windows to make a fun "big" scary manor, The little mailbox actually opens to reveal a tiny envelope. Inside the envelope .. yep, a letter to the witch. Tim Holtz Idea-ology Pumpkin Pieces & Boneyard Bones, some moss and mushrooms from my stash and I made a resin molded cat, skull and "brick" fence piece. The "siding" is broken up popsicle sticks.
Every HAUNTED village needs a Witch Apothecary where the citizens can get their potions and herbs. Combined 2 Manor doors, a Bungalow window and 2 Brownstone houses. A resin skull face wearing a great plastic Top Hat welcomes you in after you've looked at all the herbs (bones & snake) drying in the yard.
pulled glue to give the cobweb appearance
I made some resin skulls and tombstones that are guarded over by a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Salvaged Doll
A manor house with bone steps
The fence-topped Manor roofs are NOT attached. That way I can just pick them up to turn the battery operated tea lights inside each manor topper off and on.
Thanks for looking. :)
