Halloween Decor- Pennies a project


SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks. 
BANNERS

I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.

I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.

Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.

This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"

The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.


Happy Halloween!

Candles

Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than $10.  I then used my 40% coupon for the Recollections glitter and Modge Podged these Walmart white candles.

I glittered the little spider too.

I glue dotted these $1 store plastic spiders.  For both candelabras I paid less than $30.  And they are metal!

OK SUPER CHEAP!  My SIL had these Halloween Candles and asked if I wanted to use them, DUH...YA!  I didn't have any candle sick holders.  So off to the $1 store at a $1 a piece I got these glass holders.  I added some Halloween ribbon I had and glitter spiders! 


I always have LOTS of spiders and Halloween ribbon.  So these cost me $3 for all 3.

These glitter spiders are 6 for $1.

Altered Jars

Not that I'm addicted to Pinterest or anything BULLSHIT.  But I did see something similar to this.  So I grabbed these assorted jars, again $1 store for $1 each.  Cheap right. Then pinning on Pinterest I came across printable free Halloween Paper.  Because I don't have enough!  I like these for jars though since they are LABELS!


I distressed with my TH inks.

Print these for FREE!  Trim, distress and glue!

I use Modge Podge glue.

Glue them on then brush the glue on the front, it dries clear!

Spook out your home!  I have 2 on these shelves!

And 2 on these!

I have battery operated tea lights from Costco and they will flicker safely on the night of my party.

These were less than $2 each to make and minutes to create!

Spruced Up Witches Broom

Now, these brooms I have had for a few years.  They are my fav out of all my witch's brooms.  I had some big Halloween ribbon from last year kicking around.  I just tied a big bow on each and done!

Easy and at night with the purple lights they look awesome!

Spruce Up your Skeleton!

This poor guy needed a home.  I picked him up last week without any clue where to put him.  As a joke I popped him into my tree pot and now I love him there.  But there was something missing...


I had a little left over ribbon from my witches brooms.  So he got a Halloween Bow Tie! 


If you already have this stuff then these things to add are free!

Spooked Out Toilet

Just added this one.  I used scrap peices of black paper, cut on an angle, cut some fingers (but oval punch works to) and punched out the eyes.  I taped it on my toilet and I'm ready to haunt!



 I hope you found some inspiration to haunt your house.  I am always looking for inexpensive ways to do anything crafty!  This does a couple of things.  One... crafting can be pricey and two...what a fun challenge to keep it cheap!  If you look around you will be inspired to try new things to add to your next project! 

Check it out...my Haunted Toilet made it onto Buzzfeed for "23 Ways to Scare your kids for Halloween"

  16. Hello!

    I wanted to let you know that this post has been included in a collection on my blog. I am an Event Designer, and I put together a weekly post as part of my series, “The Sparkle Queen Events”. Each week a concept that I’ve designed is featured in detail on my site. The elements that make up these events are a combination ideas and images I’ve found all over the internet. I piece them together and turn them into a beautiful, coherent event concept.

    This is a link to the direct post:

    Links to your idea have been included in the post for my viewers to find easier! This event will be shared and showcased not only on my blog, but also on my social media accounts such as Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, etc.. , I’d love to connect pages via social media, so I can showcase your item and share it better with my followers.

    I hope you get a chance to see the post!

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …
