Miniature Halloween Cabinet

I had fun decorating one of my absolute favorite pieces to work with – a GSL China Cabinet 1 to 12 for Halloween. It was fun finding and making spooky little objects to put in the display.

Here are the cabinet pieces laid out. The cabinet also comes with upper and lower doors but I wanted this to be an open cabinet so I set those aside for some future use.

Once it was assembled with tacky glue, I painted the walls and exterior with black acrylic paint.

For the back interior wall, I used two different papers – an orange dot from DCWV and Graphic 45’s An Eerie Tale floral which I fussy cut for the middle shelf.

To make the stand up ghosts I cut apart a scrapbook border I had in my stash and glued them to small wood blocks that were painted white.

I had a Haunted Mansion Madame Leota miniature game that a friend made me and I wanted to include, which gave me the idea of making a Madame Leota crystal ball. It’s made from a Idea-Ology snowglobe, a printed image and some teal roving.

I embossed the word ‘Boo!’ from the GSL Spooky Shape Set and glued it in place. I added a few printed heads in jars, a trick or treat bucket, a doll’s eye and a vial of poison made from a Christmas light bulb dipped in red paint and set inside a mini glass bottle.

Madame Leota was joined by a Hagen-Renaker porcelain frog and a plastic spider web. That darling GSL Miniature Ouija Board is available over at Alpha Stamps.

Those little ghosts went in one of the bottom cubbies, along with the Madame Leota game and a miniature skull.

The cabinet was finished with a bat sticker from Jolee’s Boutique 3D Halloween Embellishments – Animal Skeletons.

Happy Halloween!
