KinderstampO's Christmas Hop


Welcome...need some DIY Handcrafted Ornament idea's?  Well, I do have a few on my blog for you.  OK get ready for LOTS of idea's on here.  I have started with a Tim Holtz Tag and I am finishing a TH Tag.  These I made last week for this hop.  The rest I made 13 years ago for my Christmas Tree and they still go on my tree today.

You should be arriving from Celine's Blog.  If you are just getting started then you'll want to start at KinderstampO's Blog.  I will try to keep it low on the chat since there are a lot of photo's!

Here is my TH Tag.  I particpated in the this years (my first) 12 Tags of Christmas.  I made this tag #10 for my mom with phot's of her parents.  My Grandafather passed away a year ago December 19th.  This tag she will put on her tree as I have done on mine.  To chech out this tag in more detail click HERE to see how I made it.

I added WISH using Scrable pieces, then used MS Glitter Glue as icicles.

Here I recreated ornaments using photo's of my Grandparents on their wedding day and my grandfather on his fish boat.  Very cool to use old photo's!

My grands on their wedding day!


OK here I have a selection of ornaments I made one year when my kids were teeny tiny!  I used plywood and my jigsaw to cut all these wooden ornaments.  I then painted them all and to this day they hang on my tree!

Cinnamon and glue arnament, painted and tied with a bow.

I layered this mitt and added a wooden button.

Stocking with Heart

I also tried some modeling clay.

Christmas Tree

This Santa I painted has always been my favorite!

I also made a mantle piece to match my tree ornaments.

My tree is full of handcrafted ornaments I made and my kids.  It is also full of ornaments that were gifts and now my new 12 Tags of Christmas. 



Here is my 2nd Tag I made for this Hop.  This one is Tag 9.

Again using the Scrabble pieces and a gear embossed and distressed.  The tag is stamped, embossed and distressed.


I hope you made it all the way down here to see all the ornaments.  I have made many of them over the years.  Thanks for hopping by you're now ready to head over to Pam's blog.

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…

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 …
