spooky monday post

I really miss doing Spooky Mondays with Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland. I had a lot of fun doing them one year (or was it two?) and I miss it this year. So in the spirit of Spooky Mondays I decided to do this post.
I love silhouettes. I like to use them in my art and definitely love them for Halloween. I have a set of owls, bats, crows, cats and a picket fence I cut out of black foam years ago that I still use every year.
I just came across a book by Jeffery Rudell posted on MAKE. A few years ago he transformed a client's home into a haunted house using spooky paper silhouettes.
I wish my house had the same amount of windows as this house does.
Actually I would love to have the house period.

But I think I can do something with the windows I have.
I love this one with the headless lady and her chair and tiny bird.

How about this creepy butcher's window?
I think I'll skip the hanging body parts but I love the kitties.
There are more pictures posted at MAKE along with a few downloadable silhouettes.
Or you can try to order the book HERE.

Let me know if you try it. I still have to put my old ones up and I'll see if I have time to try some of these in my front windows.
Happy Spooky Monday

I LOVE these!!! I will have to try these on a smaller scale....my house and windows aren't that big.....but I could make small ones.

That's the coolest idea ever. Too late for me this year but a definite for next year. Thanks for sharing that.

Dearest Anna,
My friend... you are just the most kindred spirit and hauntingly wonderful soul. I love the Ode to Spooky Monday. I wished so bad that I would have had my computer before October this year. I wanted to do Spooky Mondays this year, but you have helped me to realize that maybe it is not to late to do one final Monday before that Spectacular night of haunts. So Monday morning I will post a Halloween Spooky Monday.
Hope to see you there. ...By the way I love that headless lady also. So cool. I wanted to do a hanging man in the upstairs window this year. Did not get around to it, but next year is a must.
Wishes and Whimsy
Wendy from Wonderland
