Garlic was on my shopping list. While shopping I noticed it was on sale, 3 for $1. We love garlic and use it a lot. You know who doesn’t like garlic? Vampires. So I stocked up and incorporated it into my Halloween decor. I had an apothecary jar that was holding big cinnamon sticks. I took […]
If Edgar Allan Poe had been given some contact paper & a Cricut… (DIY Halloween Artwork)
…he probably wouldn’t have done anything with it. But here’s what I did: I made Halloween artwork based on Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “The Raven” I used a 1/4 inch plywood board, primed it, then painted it with Kylon’s Metallic paint in Nickel. I used my Cricut and contact paper to cut out the first few […]
My Halloween wreath….all it’s missing is a whip.
My Halloweenishness knows no bounds. (But I fear that my husband’s patience will soon run out if I don’t get my Halloween bins cleaned up and put away.) We had a rare California storm yesterday, so I worked on a couple of things inside the house… including my Halloween wreath. I had took a regular […]
Make faux Mercury Glass pumpkins out of Dollar Store cheesiness.
Another Dollar Store pumpkin transformation… faux Mercury Glass. This is sooooo dang easy. Take a cheesy fake pumpkin… Spray it black. Immediately, while it is still wet, lightly spray it with metallic silver paint. Krylon has a good one. This is outdoor paint, but any silver paint will do. Spraying the silver paint onto the […]

The one where the dog messes up my “After” photos.
There is no need to hit the garden center to change up your flower pots. Just give them a quick coat of paint! I have two flower pots that have layer upon layer of spray paint on them. I dump the plants, paint the pots a new color for the new season, then replant them. […]
A Zebra Striped Pumpkin. (More fun pumpkin crafts.)
OK, I told ya I was on a pumpkin binge right now. I made a flannel covered pumpkin, a punker pumpkin, some pumpkin house numbers and now… a Zebra Striped Pumpkin. I may, in fact, have a bit of a pumpkin problem. Thanks to zebra print duct tape, this entire process took me about 3 […]
Pumpkin Round Up: 10 pumpkin ideas
Fun inspiration for fall and Halloween decor using pumpkins, both real and fake.
Outdoor decor: Using pumpkins, gourds and fall foliage to brighten up your outdoor space.
We ripped out a whole bunch of ugly hedges beneath a real problem area by our front door. By creating a nice vignette of fall elements like gourds, pumpkins and a raven, we were able to make an ugly spot look a little bit nicer.
Make a leather studded punk Pumpkin for Halloween. (“Mom…? Why did you make an S&M pumpkin…?”)
Um, excuse me!? First of all, where did you hear about S&M…???!!! Second, it is NOT an S&M pumpkin… It’s a Punk-In. Some black paint, leather, studs and safety pins are all you need to add a punk edge to your Halloween decor. Actually, it doesn’t feel as punk as it does sort of Edward […]
