Creepy printable art decor

Spooky Halloween art decor (free!)
For our Halloween party (see more details here), we wanted our decor to feel one part Haunted House and one part 17th century Dutch Baroque. Ashley came up with the idea to print off some large scale engineering prints off at the local printer (we love Printmark–old Cougar Copy–here in Provo but Staples also works!) that run about $5 each. We simply printed them off and hung them up! You could even place them in some fancy gold frames.

Creepy Portrait Posters

Step 1: Go to Rijksmuseum and create an account.
Step 2: Type “portraits” into the search bar. A “portraits” collection should pop up under the search bar. Click it.
Step 3: When you find a portrait creepy enough to fit your taste click on it. Go to the bottom right of the enlarged version and click on the scissor icon. Click “download this work”. 
Step 4: Save your file on a flash drive and take it to your local printer and ask them for an “engineer print”. Staples or FedEx should do the trick! They offer a few sizes ranging from $2-$8. 
Step 5: Hang!

For our Halloween vanitas party (read up about it here and here), we had gorgeous Menu cards illustrated by Danielle Kroll, whose work I just die over (pssst: she has a line of products at Anthropologie like this and lovely prints in her shop!). 
And today she’s provided a free template that you can print off yourself for your own Halloween party. Click on this link to get the print-ready file (with the full menu printed. Stay tuned for the recipes!) or click here to get a blank menu.

Printable Halloween party invitation

For our Vanitas Halloween party (check out the full explanation of our theme here) we recruited the talented Danielle Kroll to design an invitation. We wanted something that was both beautiful yet a tad creepy and I love what she came up with. I think it really captured the feel of our event. We printed it off on an off-white card stock.

Print off your own invitation here (all blank version and partially blank version)

Watermelon peter pan collar

Speaking of fruits, (ahem, the pineapple favor bags from yesterday) we had to get our last fruit project in for the summer with this adorable watermelon Peter Pan collar. How adorable is it?! Kelly came up with this genius project after becoming enamored with the embroidery class she took (see here). It would be so cute to add to any solid dress or blouse. It would be especially cute for a little girl. Right?! And the best news is, if you’re not a crafter, she’s selling them on her Etsy shop. She has some darling designs (I love the apple one! Perfect for fall!). Her work is impeccable.

Materials: Free template here, fabric, embroidery floss, needle, scissors
For the peter pan collar using the template (download it for free here), cut two,
trace the design with an iron on transfer pencil and iron onto the right side of one.
 

Sew right sides of the fabric together. 

Start sewing the collar together about 1/2 inch from the ends. Leave about an inch or so open about an inch from the center of the collar, but not the center. 

Trim the seam allowance and snip about every 1/4″, then turn inside out.

Turn the seam allowance of the open part of the collar in and then press. 

Close the opening by hand sewing. Press both sides of the edges in a 1/4. Insert a ribbon of your choice into each end and then top stitch closed. Now you’re ready to stitch! 

For the green part of the rind, I used a #3 needle and 3 strings of floss. The white part of the rind, I used a #3 needle and 6 string floss. For the seeds, I used #3 needle and 3 black strings of floss. The seeds were done with the satin stitch, the leaves were done with the fishbone stitch and the stem was done with a split stitch. Learn more about how to embroidery from this post. 

Here are the initial photos, but for a more complete step-by-step visual guide, see this post
