Another SVG Cutting File for Halloween

Continuing with the skeleton theme here. Last week I shared my Haunted Caskets project. This week I took those same old bones and put them to work decorating for the season. Check out my latest project for paper crafters. Here is Haunted Ladders with Skeletons Decorating for Halloween.

Found Art • Always Look

Art and design are everywhere and once you open your eyes to it, you'll be amazed at what you see.  Certainly, using a camera and looking at the world through a viewfinder has helped me see things as compositions and not objects. It was back in my college days that I found this rusted spring in someone else's trash. I saw it as a dynamic line drawing, retrieved and have had it hanging in my living spaces ever sense.

It currently resides on the wall above the toilet in the bathroom.  It inspired me to keep my eyes open for similar treasures.  I am building yet another collection - this one of springs - to add to the humor and impact of it.

SVG file for Haunted Casket

This year the skeleton is my go to Halloween character. The first project is done and all the grandkids want one. Guess I'll be making three.

This spooky casket is designed to hold 2 optional LED tea lights to provide an eery internal glow. It can be displayed either vertically or horizontally and the skeleton can be arranged in any number of poses.  

The SVG cutting file is here -
