My amazing photographer sister Wendy took some haunted pictures of my kids a couple of years ago when the #1905Cottage was under restoration. They turned out so great and creepy. I thought they would be so fun to have printed from Shutterfly’s wood art to create a Halloween Gallery Wall. I love the way the wood grain shows through in their wood wall art. And I thought it would super cool with the ghostly pictures.
Be sure to check out Wendy’s site and photographs – she’s so talented and I am so proud of her!
The top and bottom pictures are from an abandoned house in Lehi, Utah, that I drove by and grabbed some quick shots of with my phone. I reduced the color saturation a bit and then added semi-transparent type in Adobe Illustrator.
I used the 12 x 36 wood prints from Shutterfly for the top and bottom; two 16×20 wood prints for the middle ones. I then spaced them all 4″ apart so they’d be even.
If you’d like to print these same Haunted Halloween prints, you are welcome to use these free printables (for personal use only!).
Warning: the files are huge because you’ll need a high-resolution image to have them look good printed so large.

I also created some fun Halloween “Enter” and the “If You” on Shutterfly‘s 5 x 7-inch acrylic blocks and the “Dare” on the 5 x 5 ones. You can do the same thing, or print them on heavy photo paper and frame them or mount them on foam-core board.
Fun fact: I used the same technique I used on the Haunted Halloween prints above — I edited a photo and placed slightly transparent text over the top in Adobe Illustrator to create the images. And the photo is from the #1905Cottage porch — it’s the original exterior brick before I had to cover it with the wood siding!

Warning: the files are large — not as large as the previous ones, but you’ll still want a high-resolution image to have them look good printed.
