I covered this ugly wood frame with some really neat velvety scrapbook paper and then embellished it too. I think it is so cute!
I bought this three-opening picture frame to create this adorable "BOO" sign for my Halloween cottage. I wish you could have seen how ugly it was before I dressed it up!
And here is Miss Molly looking "spooktacular" in her witchy costume. I got that great hat at TJ Maxx and added some more feathers and things. I think she looks so "bootiful"!
Here is a cute shelf made from a window shutter that I painted white, then added some cute decorations to. I love the black lace and the darling witch doll on this shelf.
I was really proud of myself when I got this wreath done. I saw one like it at Pier One Imports and wanted it so bad but it cost $59!!! So I was determined to make my own for cheap . . . and I succeeded! I think all together it was about $15 for the supplies to create this darling Halloween wreath. It hangs over a mirror above my fireplace mantle now. I am planning to show you some more pictures of my Halloween cottage in a later post.
I bought this pre-formed witch hat and covered it with glitter, then added some embellishments.
This is the star of the show in the dining area. I purchased this spooky Halloween tree at a gift shop in a small town near mine. I found it during a car show that James and I were working at and he was so sweet to carry this silly black tree with orange lights up and down the streets while he looked at the cars. He got a lot of heckling from the other men but his still carried for me. When I got it home I immediately got busy making ornaments. If any of you have been following my blog for a while you know that I LOVE to make little ornaments for every occasion and holiday. When I finished my Halloween ornaments I was pretty proud of myself because they turned out to be so darn cute!!!
I made little ghosts out of cheesecloth and glass marbles.
I made orange/white and black/white lollipops out of polymer clay and GLITTER.
I made candy corns from clay and glitter and I embellished some pre-made witch hats.
Then I brought out the darling ornaments I made last year and the tree was covered with the cutest Halloween ornaments you have ever seen. I wish you could see it in person!
I also painted that dresser I got at a garage sale so now it is the lovely shade of white and it matches the other furniture in the room. It has become a real showcase for many of my darling creations. I just love these candle holders but I had a terrible time trying to find orange and black candles in my town. I looked every where they sell candles and nobody had orange and black. It was really upsetting me at one point, but then I had the crazy thought of just buying some white candles and covering them with some coordinating scrapbook paper. Thank goodness for pretty paper!!! Now they match perfectly and I can use the candles again for another holiday!
I hope you have enjoyed my pretty Halloween creations. I have more to show you!!! I made some darling jars for my Halloween sprinkles AND I had a special guest for a tea party this past Wednesday and I have a lot of great pictures of our time together. Miss Sherry of County Wings in Phoenix was in Oklahoma and she and my mom came over for a special Halloween tea party. We had wonderful food and great conversation and I can't want to share it all with you. Please keep Sherry and her family in your prayers because her mother possibly had a stroke yesterday. I am sure she would appreciate your prayers.
I hope you all have a safe and blessed weekend and a happy Pink Saturday! Please check out the other great blogs featured on Beverly's blog. Thank you Beverly for hosting us again this weekend!
Blessings to You!
