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!

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…
