Use Halloween clear labels to make spooky projects! This is a sponsored post with OnlineLabels.com
I am so ready to start my Halloween crafting! I have loads of ideas for things I want to make. This first project is a quick and easy way to create decor and cards. I use crystal clear printable labels to make all this stuff in less than an hour!
I love to use clear labels from OnlineLabels.com because they hold the color from my ink jet printer so beautifully. Other labels smear or the ink bleeds, but that never happens with these labels. For this project I used OL475CK labels, which measure 4″ by 5″ each. There are 4 labels per sheet, so I was able to make all these projects with just one sheet. These Halloween clear labels can be used in lots of different ways!
The images I used for this project are from DesignBundles: Fancy Skulls ClipArt and Vintage Halloween ClipArt. After I chose the images I wanted, I used the free template from OnlineLabels.com to make my spooky free printable.
Supplies Used to Make Halloween Clear Labels Projects:
- OnlineLabels.com OL475CK Clear Labels
- Old Metal Frames and Mirrors (from Goodwill San Antonio)
- Metallic Lustre
To Make the Halloween Wall Decor
Here are two ways to create spooky wall decor with Halloween clear labels. Start by using a q-tip or cotton ball to apply Metallic Lustre to the frames. I like to just add it to the raised areas so that it maintains an aged look.
One of the frames I used has a mirror instead of a picture in it. All you have to do is peel and stick the clear label on the mirror, then use a craft knife to trim off the excess. This simple trick creates such a spooky effect! I love to use clear labels to put on mirrors, because you can’t even see the label at all.
The other frame had no glass or picture, which is perfect because the clear label looks glassy. I trimmed a page from an old dictionary to fit in the frame.
Then I placed the clear label image on top and trimmed the edges. Instead of fighting to trim and feed the dictionary page through my printer I use clear labels to create the same effect much more easily.
Make Spooky Halloween Printable Cards
Instead of using stamps and coloring, I can quickly make multiple sets of cards using clear printable labels with cardstock.
The simplest thing to do is simply peel and stick the image on the card, then trim the edge.
Another fun idea is to cut a piece of the dictionary page to fit the printed image. Make sure the paper is smaller than the label, because you want to leave a sticker border for the next step.
Stick the paper to the printed label paper, then press that onto the card. Quick, cute and quirky Halloween card in seconds!
