Who Is That Knocking At The Door (A Door Hanger) by Lynne Moncrieff

A fun home décor project for Halloween in the shape of a door hanger decorated on both sides, to display in the house if anyone is planning on having a Halloween dressing up party or expecting Trick or Treating visitors. I still find it strange to say Trick or Treat as in my part of the world it was always called ‘guising.



Distress Inks – Vintage Photo and Brushed Corduroy
Walnut Ink Crystals (good substitutes are Distress Stain or Distress Re-Inker in Walnut Stain)
Extras:- Cobweb Stamp (from Oxford Impressions Haunted), Stained Vintage Lace


Instructions – Side One


After applying Gesso to door hanger with a large soft brush and a loose hand, apply the solution of walnut ink. Heat set between layers.   

Randomly stamp cobweb with Brushed Corduroy. 


Apply Black Soot Distress Crackle Paint to edges. Lay aside.

Onto sheet of white cardstock, apply walnut ink solution. Once dry, stamp Oxford Impressions Masquerade images. Fussy cut and apply black glass glitter to some of the images.


Stamp Happy Halloween and two bats directly onto the door hanger. Heat set. Plan composition of the other stamped elements. Adhere to hanger with Gel Medium including a fragment of stained lace.


Instructions – Side Two


The instructions are really a duplicate for side one of the hanger. This time, instead of stamping Happy Halloween and bats directly onto the hanger, you substitute Masquerade and Guess Who?  


Until next time,
