I have a wall in my dining room that is under-done 11 months of the year… but not in October. Grant loves to help me with the placement of the bats. (We like to make them look like they’re swarming towards a corner of the room.) This couldn’t be easier. Cut some bat shapes out […]
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.

Here’s my latest: Ombre Owl Artwork, using Halloween silhouettes from the Dollar Store. This was really quite easy to […]
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 […]
Last year I snapped up a cool old globe for 50 cents at a yard sale and I used chalkboard paint to make a Scary Places Halloween Globe. Well, it’s been sitting in the garage since last Halloween and I’ve been thinking about how to change it up for this year without ruining the […]
It’s September! I am so ready to start thinking Fall! Unfortunately, I am kicking off the season with a Craft Fail. Last week I shared my big, fat feather failure… Well I had set some of the orange ones aside. This is what happens when you cross a pumpkin with a Muppet. Please believe me […]
