Halloween!!! Shadow box Oriental Trading Company

Shadow box
Oriental Trading Company

Hey crafty friends, today I have an amazing spooky shadow box and display to share with you.

I started out with these small unfinished wood boxes that were sent to me from Oriental Trading Company.
I glued 4 of them together
After that I used gesso to seal the wood.

I then painted the boxes black
Using DecoArt black paint. 
As I was painting I decided to go over the tops lightly to give it a spooky look. 
I found some neat Halloween paper in my stash to back each box.
I also was sent out these cool wooden skulls which also painted with gesso. 
I started adding different peices of halloween themed papers and stickers and other embellishments until I was happy with them. I used my punches for the trees, hot glue for the spider web. And popsicle sticks to bring things out 3D. 
I cut the spider web out of the spider glitter tape, I was sent and placed it on top of my hot glue web. 
After everything was attached I decided to do more around my shadow box to make a display. 
I used these beautiful Frosted vases and attached labels to them.

Adding to the display I used these unfinished wood slat pieces to which I cut out these cool sign looking papers from my Halloween paper collection I had.
To top it off, I added lights I had laying around to make the display look even spookier. I was very happy with all these products. It took a little creativity on my part, but I'm really happy with the outcome.
Here are a few more close up photos
