Next we have this remarkable Happy Haunting grandfather clock and tutorial by Sharon Ngoo! This is such a clever way to craft with the Graphic 45 Kraftboard Altered Art Boxes! And this is a great time to start thinking about your Halloween crafts! It's never too early to dream! Sharon has even created a super fun tutorial that's sure to get you in the Halloween crafting spirit! What fun! Here is what Sharon had to say about the inspiration behind this wonderful work of art!

I was inspired the phrase "Charms of the witching hour" on the "Happy Haunting" patterned paper. It made me think of clocks and as I was messing around with the altered art boxes, I realised that the proportions of the small box and big box together were just about right for a nice tall grandfather clock! (I love these boxes! They're so versatile!). So here's my version of a Halloween grandfather clock.  I didn't manage to get down to the hardware store to find a nice clock mechanism, so unfortunately, this clock is purely decorative....It would have been really cool if there was a real clock in it! But hey, the pendulum swings!
