Remember the upcycled lampshades I did with some cute fabric in the springtime? It’s fall so I was ready for a change… but this time I didn’t use fabric, I used houndstooth scrapbook paper. I had paper left over from my DIY gift bags, and I thought it would be perfect for these chandy shades. […]
Nothing says Halloween like pumpkins covered in chains. (Right…? Possibly…? It’s just me, then?) I love how these chain pumpkins turned out!
So yesterday when I shared my accidental faux bois painting technique… this is what I was working on. Skeleton Specimen Artwork. This was very easy to do. Grab some Dollar Store Skeletons, paint them and a small piece of plywood with a good quality silver spray paint. (I used Krylon Metallic Silver spray paint) While the silver […]
This post could also be called Even Cheap, Crappy Quality Spray Paint Can Be Beautiful. It technically isn’t faux bois since it’s real wood grain… but I don’t even know how I’d go about trying to create this on purpose. With faux bois being so popular, I was delighted when this happened by total accident. I […]
We host a Halloween Party every year, and one of the things I really enjoy doing is making the invitations. (Here are the invitations I made last year. Super easy.) While I did do a “Save the Date” over Facebook at the beginning of the month, I think there’s just something special about getting an actual invitation […]
I love monograms and initials. I love Halloween. I love the Dollar Store. Ergo, I love this project: a monogram made out of silver skeletons. It was pretty easy to create. I grabbed a few of these skeleton garlands from the Dollar Store, took the ropes from around their bony little necks and spray painted […]
They aren’t replanted yet, but today I wanted to show you how I saved a couple of old flower pots. I have a couple of planters that have been around here for quite a while. I like the style of them, and I have repainted them several times over in order to get more life […]
This post may contain Amazon and other affiliate links. So way back in February… I was already thinking about Halloween. I knew when I saw this spider at Target’s Dollar Spot that I needed to buy him, and that I would do something to him in just 8 short months! Yay! A little of Krylon Metallic […]
I love pumpkins. I love Duck Tape. I really, really love houndstooth… so it’s only natural that I would make a Houndstooth Duck Tape Pumpkin. This is so, so, SO easy to do. Grab yourself some fabulous Duck Tape and a Dollar Store pumpkin. Split the tape down the middle so that you have thinner […]
OK, maybe not 50, but it sure seems like I did a whole heck of a lot of pumpkins last fall. As autumn approaches and we gear up to go into another fall season, I thought I’d do a quick recap of last year’s pumpkins.
