+ Halloween Decor Blog Hop

 

Halloween is always a fun time to host a party. This year, I got to host our monthly Bunco Party for a vamptastic Halloween Girls’ Night! It was hauntingly fun and I cannot wait to share it with you.

If you have never played Bunco, you are missing out on some serious girl-time gaming amusement. Don’t worry, you can get into the game easily enough, I have downloads and FREE printables that will arm you with everything you need. Check them out below.

Since my party was at the beginning of October, I wanted to give it a Halloween theme. My house is all spooked out with the decor, I added Halloween names to the Bunco tables, and of course, I served a frightfully tasty Halloween-themed dessert, Vampire Cupcakes.

Jeepers Creepers, let’s take a peek!

I had a ton of fun creating my Halloween Mantel Decor, and am absolutely in love with the Orange, Black, and Purple color scheme. See the post HERE. This was a perfect focal point for my Halloween Girls’ Night Bunco Party.

I set-up a super cute buffet table for some extra snacks and my delectable dessert.

These Vampire Cupcakes are easy-peasy to make and are quite a crowd pleaser — definitely a perfect Halloween-themed dessert. CLICK HERE for the RECIPE!

 

All of my Bunco supplies had a Halloween twist. From the goodie bags for my prizes to the table tags denoting which table was which, to the pencils. Even my prizes were renamed: Master Vampire = Most Buncos; The Headless Horseman = 1st Place; Mummy in the Middle = 2nd Place; The Cackler = Most Smileys; and The Body in the Basement = Most Losses.

Aren’t these spooky Candelabra Place Cards adorable? They were perfect for marking my tables and placed beside my cupcakes.

Ready to Play Bunco?

Bunco is a very EASY game, anyone can play it. There is no skill or strategy involved. If you can roll dice, you can play. This game is a great social mixer since you change partners and tables all night long, so you get the opportunity to chat and giggle with everyone.

Very few supplies are needed to play Bunco: dice; paper; pencil; and a bell (or something to make noise with). You will also want score sheets. And, if you are starting a Bunco Group of your own, you’ll want the Monthly Paid Schedule and the Rules, Prizes & Game Play. I have FREE PRINTABLES for these!

The score sheets come two to a page. Each player needs to have one.

Haunted Mirror – An Eerie Halloween DIY Decor

If you are looking for Halloween decor that gives a big fright with little bite then the Haunted Mirror is the DIY project for you — easy and eerie!

 

Haunted Mirror

A Hauntingly Spooktacular Halloween DIY Decor

 

Today, I have something really fun for you. If you have hung around here for any time at all, you know that I love Halloween. So, I am thrilled to bring you this eerie craft idea for Halloween decor.

This DIY Halloween project is really very easy to create.

Haunted Mirror DIY

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 Can – Krylon Looking Glass Silver Spray Paint
  • Tape
  • 1 – 8″ x 10″ Picture Frame
  • 1 – Image to fit an 8″ x 10″ Frame

How to Make the Haunted Mirror:

  1. Choose your Image
  1. Scan Image and create an Inverse Image
  1. Print out two copies – 1 Original Image, and 1 Inverse Image
  1. Take Glass out of picture frame. Clean Glass very well.

  1. Tape the Inverse Image to the front or outside of the glass (image side facing the glass). This allows you to see exactly where your image will be once it is in the frame, and will help you during the spray painting.
  1. Place glass image side down on your spraying surface. You can see the image through the glass.
  1. Shake Krylon spray paint vigorously
  1. Spray the entire glass with a fine mist of paint
  1. Then add more paint in small spurts, especially to the areas around your image. You want there to be enough paint to create a mirror, but with a lighter spraying of paint on top of the image so that it shows through.
  1. Let the paint dry for at least one hour
  1. Remove the Inverse image from the front of the glass and clean glass carefully.
  1. Place glass back into the frame–Glass side out, Painted side to the inside.
  1. Load the Original Image into the frame

Time for some Tips

  • Clean the glass, then wipe it down with alcohol. Any fingerprints or oils will interfere with the paint sticking properly.
  • Blushing: If you get blushing with your spray paint, don’t worry. The Krylon Looking Glass washes right off easily with a little soap and water. (What is Blushing? Blushing occurs when there is high humidity in the air. The moisture settles on the not cured paint and causes a milky whiteness or flat white look in the paint. This happened to me on my first attempt, because I did the spraying after the marine layer came in from the ocean–silly me.)
  • Tips for your Image:
    • Areas not showing up well – I had a large white area on my image over about half the face. So, I used colored pencil to draw it in better.
    • White is showing up to bright – Again, this was the case for me, so I sprayed a light coating of the Looking Glass spray paint directly onto my image to tone it down. This worked great, and also gave the image another dimension.
    • Be sure that you have enough paint around your image to make the glass really look like a mirror. That way your image will appear to be coming through the mirror–a very spooky effect. (You can clearly see the apple in the reflection.)
  • So, just play around with it, until you reach your desired effect.

Being that this project is making a mirror, it is difficult to photograph (at least for me anyway). But I think I managed to get some pretty cool shots of the Haunted Mirror–take a look…

Notice the reflections in the mirror…

The reflection here is a hutch. It almost looks like the lady is pushing her way through the wood.

Look at her reaching for that apple–Who is the fairest of them all…

Imagine catching that face out of the corner of your eye…spine-chilling.

 

I hope you have enjoyed our little Haunted Mirror Halloween DIY project. We had a blast making this for you — now, make you own. Have a Hauntingly Spooktacular Halloween!.
