Poe inspired halloween decor


First year with my GF so of course I had to make some of my own Halloween decorations. Some parts got a little crispy and discolored. If I did it again, I’d have cut the leaves/flowers on different colored matieral. But all around, I’m happy with how they came out.

Also, I found the 12"x12" baltic birch plywood squares at Michael’s. I was pretty surpised to find plywood there.

(The text is from the poem Alone By Edgar Allen Poe)

Nice job on the staining. Ply like that sometimes turns out patchy and uneven, you got a nice rich solid walnut color.

You did Mr. Poe justice.

The skull, ribcage and foot I designed myself by taking Clipart of the bones and roses and peicing it together

The hand I purchased and edited the rose in because I didn’t like the original flower.

Thanks! I think I got lucky with these pieces of plywood. I stained back and front just see which side turned out looking best. The backs are not great haha

This is wonderful!

Nevermore

My sister and a few other members of my family would also just see it as regular decor! The colors pop just enough against that dark stain, especially for a “Halloween” themed setting. Really dig the overall setup there!

Great job! Suitably creepy and fancy all at the same time.
