I had left over strips of paper from another project, so I took a little Mod Podge and covered a pumpkin with it. I love how it turned out!
Last year, Sandra from Sawdust & Paper Scraps made a very cool Halloween candelabra, and I really, really wanted to make one too, but didn’t get around to it. (I met Sandra at The Haven Conference last June, and I must confess I have quite the Girl Crush on her… she is awesome!) Sandra’s is a fab tutorial on […]
My mantel is soooo hard to decorate. It’s an asymmetrical wooden nightmare. I am still not happy with this, but it’ll do. I will probably continue to tweak it. I do like the sparkle of the mercury glass and silver, and I like the little ravens. I’m still very enamored of the Raven artwork I did last […]
…and I’m not talking pumpkins. Garlic. It keeps vampires away, right? So you’re definitely going to want to have some around. I used this same little garlic/decor trick last year, and I wanted to do it again. However, this year I knew I needed to glue the spiders to the garlic to ensure they stayed where […]
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!
These black and white pumpkin topiaries are an easy to make project. All you need are a few items from the Dollar Store and some paint! The ravens holding up the Halloween banner make the project extra fun. Check out the easy tutorial.
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 […]
