Trick or treat!

Happy Sunday Tando fans! The blog has looked fantastic this week! I am delighted to be sharing something spooky with you today!

My knock a door run! Will there be a trick or treat hiding behind the door... who dares to open it !

For the base of this door I got creative and used a frame and panel from the {Layered Rowing Boat} I loved the long elongated shape.. just what I was looking for!

Layered Rowing Boat with Oars

No need for any basecoat or Gesso.. I wanted rough and ready! The messier the better for an aged look.. the frame and panel were given a coat of walnut stain. Strips of left over cardboard cereal box were used for wooden door panels. 

Being in a creative mood! I decided to see if I could alter one of the locks from the {Locks and Latches} set.. 

Locks and Latches

I used the lock for the keyhole and the fancy edges as hinges for the door..
(cutting the lock top right)

I think it worked out quite well!

I used a couple of other halloweeny elements to decorate the front door..

Tando Mini's - Mixed Halloween

 along with this handsome chappie from the {Set of 3 Bats}
