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!

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 …

Mixed Media Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.

Country View Crafts- Anything Goes Mixed Media Monthly Challenge- Ring in the new Year (something new, Baked Texture)



Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
