Halloween Treat Stall

I finally combined some of the Halloween treats I made into a stall.  I don’t have any new tutorials today, but I linked tutorials to make items in this stall, so I hope that helps.

I made the stall pretty much the same way I did with the potion stall except for the design. Foam board is awesome, I tell ya!

For the decoration of the stall, I used some Halloween stickers. Hey, don’t say I cheated! lol

Tomorrow, I will announce the winners of the giveaway.  Since I had more people enter than I expected, I decided to have 2 winners.  Keep your fingers crossed!

 

Potion Stall

First of all, thank you so much to all those who entered the Halloween giveaway! If you haven’t, it’s completely free on your part, so give it a try! Remember, the deadline is end of this month.  Check it out! -> “Halloween Giveaway!”

Anyways, today’s post is on the wooden stall that I made for the Halloween festival. This should also explain how to make a wood looking surface with a foam board.  (If you are interested in what else you can do with foam board, check out Diorama 101, many of the crafts there use foam boards)

So this entire structure is made out of foam board. I’ve said in many of my past posts that you can do a lot with these dollar store boards, and you can even mimic wood, especially weathered looking kind, which happens to be perfect for Halloween.

I cut out the 5mm think foam boards into pieces, and peeled off the paper on both sides.

Then I brushed the surface with a steel brush.  You can find these awesome brushes for about a dollar at DIY stores.  This gives a very nice wooden texture to the surface, not to mention, very quickly.

Then with a pencil, I drew lines so the board looks like a panel of multiple wooden planks.

This is how it looks like when you put the boards together before painting. I recommend painting each panel first, then assembling the stall together once the paint is dry.

For the painting, I simply painted black acrylic paint all over for the first coat.

Then for the highlight, I brushed on some light gray.  Make sure that your brush is dry for this coat, and not to put very much paint at all.

For the assembly, I just hot glued everything together.  I left the roof unglued for easy access to the inside.

I added a shelving unit on the back.

Pretty easy, eh? Believe it or not, it doesn’t take much time at all to make this stall.

I had some small glass vials, so I put various materials to make them look like potion bottles. Beads, clay, fur…anything will do, really.

To top it off, I printed some free printable potion labels I found online at shrunk size, and glued them onto the bottles.

This is where I’m thinking Halloween festival is going to be held….I hope everything will come together okay.

Let me remind you that I am not that great at sewing nor miniature food, so don’t expect pro-quality. I am only sharing the Halloween fun with you.

Oh, did I tell you you get these actual dolls, too? Yeah, it’s true! I will of course include their original outfits in the package too.
