The First Bat Wing Halloween Cardboard House
This whole house design is inspired by the base and bat wings. I conceived of the base when I heard someone use the term "slippery slope" and it hit me that this was the perfect concept for a Halloween house particularly a bat-winged Halloween house.
Your slippery slope looks amazing and so does the beginnings of the house! Congratulations on being a pinworthy at A Vintage Journey with one of your previous creations too! Anne x
Thank you, Anne. I am so excited about being recognized on A Vintage Journey. What an honor.
Nice to see the base in progress. Interesting to see how you are forming it!
I love your idea, it’s going to look fabulous.
One question the base looks like you actually put rocks on the design, can you tell me how to achieve that look.
Keep up the good work
Myrna, what looks like rocks is just paint. I just play around with the layers of paint until it looks like rocks. I think I painted over it several times. To get that effect, I will smear and streak the layers because rocks are so variable and irregular. I will re-read the post and see if I can give you more specific instructions later today or tomorrow (work, you know.) Lucy
I really love how your Count's Lair came about, I'm trying to do some air dry clay houses for my daughters and would certainly use some of our ideas.
I am so glad you like this house. I haven't ever made houses from air dry clay houses, but I'm sure you could make them in a similar manner.
I would love to see your versions that you are making for your daughters.
