$5 Upcycled Halloween Wreath

Well, for me it cost $5 because I recycled my old Halloween Wreath.  I kept the Grape Vine wreath and the "Happy Halloween" I made 15 years ago!  It was time for an update so I hit...you guessed it, the $1 Store!!! 
 
I found this fun garland for $1 each and picked up 2 of them.  All I did was wrap the garland, no gluing.
 
These Glitter Pumpkins were $1 each!  I added the glitter spider I already picked up last year.  Another $1 Store find.  Just hot glue attaches the pumpkins and spider.
 
 
The "HAPPY HALLOWEEN" I made years ago and upcycled it to the new wreath adding another glitter spider.

 
My wreath hanging on the door. No Halloween stuff yet but if you follow me on Facebook you already saw my deck.
 
 
I added some new $1 Store stuff, like a fluffy black Owl, $2!

 
The garland is left over from my door from years past.  It finally came apart last year.  I kept it and now it has a new home nestled in the hay bails and pumpkins.

 
OMGEEE...Isn't he sweet!

 
A wee Crow, also $1.  My SIL had a handful and when I asked what she was doing with them she said she was adding them to her Fall decor on her front steps!  BRILLIANT, so I copied!  She loves Halloween as much as I do!

 
This took me 5 minutes to assemble and cost next to nothing:)
 
 
Check out what you have.  And if something needs a little up date and a fresh look you don't have to spend a lot!  Look at what you have and spend time in your local $1 Store!  If they only knew what I did with their $1 items they would charge a lot more!

  1. I love the little crow...he is so cute. The crows are a nice added touch....but wait, you don't have crows in Alberta...like the wreath with the very creepy spider! Looks like a nice inviting Fall Entrance...if you are not afraid of spiders and crows....

  2. I'm on it! Didn't pay attention to the garland when I was there yesterday-back tomorrow. I got a bunch of the little crows-and I still have several of the big ones from last year.I went skull crazy last year-any good ideas for them?

    1. Pick up some green glitter, modge podge and glitter the skulls up. They look great in a a bowl or cauldron. I do that with my old bones and skulls. Or make a skull wreath. So many creepy possibilities.

  3. I love your front entrance :)
    Your wreath is awesome. I have one of those black wreaths I had bought a few years ago. I had the perfect idea for it, and have since forgot what it was, lol.
    I may have to nab your idea :)

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
