Upcycled HaLLOwEeN Tray

Pin It ..  
Yes.. I know... Halloween is just a few days away.. I SHOULD be done creating items.. but I just can't help it... it's fun!
I found this sweet tray
 in a recycle store and just couldn't help but snatch it up for a whopping...
So I started to make it creepy with paint, Decoupage papers and Antique Mod Podge
I painted my tray black.
Then started Mod Podging my Skeleton.. cause the head bones connected to the
rib bones.. and the rib bones connected to the 
arm bones... and the arm bones connected to the hand bones..
and the hand bones connected to the POISON!.. oops.. 
and the jar of mice!.. Yikes
And of course he is.. all reconstructed!
Fun, CreEpY and Easy.. three of my favorite things!
I am sharing with these fun parties!

Salt Dough Sunday

Sundays are usually lazy days in my house..
but I thought that I would mix up a batch of fun with the kids.. and
and WHAT could be better than Halloween salt dough creations?
Want to make some with your little monster?  Here's how!
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
Mix they dry ingredients then the wet.  
Once combined, roll it out
stamp your shapes,
place on a baking sheet with parchment,
and bake at 350 degrees.
Once cool, 
and just have fun!

Roadside Rescue: Sit a Spell Chair

Pin It

I have been wanting to make one of these for awhile!

I made it from this old chair that the hubby grabbed for me as a roadside rescue!

I started by scuffing it up with a sanding square (with a little help from my puppy)

Next I gave it a coat of crackle finish.

Once it was dry I added my vinyl pieces.

Then I painted it all up with orange


And black.

Then I peeled off my vinyl,

And then I wrapped it in webbing and set it up outside....

So what do you say?  Want to sit a spell?

BeWitching Shadowbox

It all started with this little mdf dress..
Pin It 
that became this witchy dress...
that wouldn't have been complete without a pointed hat...
which needed to put away neatly in a closet...
that housed the little dress perfectly!
And somehow it all seemed to match with my Halloween display~
It's soo Bewitching!
Happy Haunted Crafting!
