So this post is the first of a million-trillion-gazillion more to come. Just a little forewarning. Turn back now if you no-likey Halloweenie, because this lady is one mad crafting witch (witch in a good way... Tee-Hee-Hee)
I am totally entranced with Halloween this year. I find myself day dreaming about pumpkins, witches and spiderwebs. About candy apples, mummy cupcakes and frozen hand ice-cubes. Know what I am talking about? Put some water in a latex glove, freeze it and then remove the glove before placing in the punch bowl. Hand ice cubes. Clever clever
That's normal right? My brain waves have tuned in to the 24/7 spooky channel. Screw dusting... I'm gonna make me some popcorn spiders, test out that recipe for caramel corn and hole punch some bat cupcake toppers.
Just wait. I must have flew the coop, cuz this year I have upped the stakes. I have challenged myself to make all the decorations from items around the house or yard (with the exception of a few items purchased at the Dollar Store).
Am I Coo Coo for cocoa puffs? eh, oh well
My craft closet has been bursting at the seems so I thought 'now or never'... here we go!
Witches brooms from branches around the yard and left over floral 'stuff'.
Dollar store crows. Can't pass them up.
Most awesome trick EVER! I got this idea from Martha. Plain black trash bags shredded and stretched create this supercalifragilisticexpialidocious spooky effect. So freaking cool if your place gets the slightest breeze.
Like I said before. MORE-TO-COME. This is just the beginning. I haven't even gotten in the front door yet ;)
