I have a thing for pretty bottles and decanters. I always keep my eyes peeled when I am thrifting, hoping to find some cool ones. So far I have exactly 4, and they are making an appearance in my Halloween decor this year. These cool bottles got a creepy make-over, thanks to fabulous Halloween Clip […]
Nothing says Halloween like pumpkins covered in chains. (Right…? Possibly…? It’s just me, then?) I love how these chain pumpkins turned out!
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.
