Halloween Garland

I made this cute garland for my fireplace, it needed some pizzaz after my husband informed me that with all the green and white it looked more like St. Patrick's.  

I think it added just the right touch.

Just another member to my little family I created last year.  I love that purple made it's way in.

Framed Halloween Art {Tutorial}

I did these two cute framed art, and loved so much how they tured out, that I thought I'd share.

Find a cute scrapbook paper that already looks like art.  Buy 2.

Cut out all the images you want to raise, and embellish.
I picked red and gold glitter to embellish with, and a rhinestone.
Add embellishments as desired.  Let dry completely.

Add foam squares to the back of each image, and adhere to the untouched page.  

Now all you need is a frame, and you have a beautiful piece of art.

This is the other one I did.

Skeleton Mirror

I bought this mirror a while ago at Hobby Lobby for my craft shows. I tied orange ribbon around it, and I hang it from a tall hook so people can use it as they try on headbands.  I saw it in my basement and decided it needed to come out for Halloween.  The black with the orange screamed Halloween.  Then I decided it needed a cute skeleton to go in the middle. {made of vinyl}  I love it.

Mummy can

Totally stole this idea from my friend.  We live right next to each other, and our houses tend to look very similar during the holidays :)
All we did was glue strips of linen on to a canning can (this is a BIG one.) Leaving a couple exposed for added detail.  Then cut eyes and smile out of felt, and glued it right on top.  SOOO easy and super cute!
