Candy Corn Princess

Well I have been busy with Halloween costumes...and I think I'm pretty much finished except a few last touches.  My project to share today is Robin and Savannah's Candy Corn Princess Tutu's..they saw a picture of their friend Lauren in her corn princess outfit so they wanted me to come up with something like it.  Well I had to put my thinking cap on because with boys I never had a need to make tutu's!! LOL....but I had such fun.  Picked up some orange and black tulle, ribbons and went to work.  For their shirts I just picked up tshirts @ Joann's and painted a piece of candy corn on with alittle glitter here and there!  We did a trial run for their dad, Beth and Jamie at the hair shop and they wirled and twirled and had a was well worth the effort.  I had enough left to make baby Maia one to so we are having a baby corn princess too!!  I'll post pics of all the princess' hopefully next week..thanks for stopping by!! Note blogger is only letting me upload one picture so I'll try to load more later!! :)

Halloween Tree

Just a quick post to share my finished Halloween tree...the pictures are not very good because the lighting was bad in my dining room and awfully busy background!!  You get the jest of it anyway.  Just used the wood ornaments from Michaels and colored with my colorbox markers.   Used some "googly eyes" here and there.  Made some tissue ghosts, and then added some vintage halloween prints and outlined them with gold pipe cleaners...Tied everything on with ribbons and used some spider web and spider rings in the pot for effect...this was a fun but time consuming project.  My hope is to get to "play" in my room some this weekend...has been a very hectic week and I need some down time....thanks for stopping by....

Spooky Projects!!

I have been up to my eyeballs in Halloween!!! :) and seriously I am having a ball.  I have a project to share with you today that I got the idea from a Halloween Blog Hop I was on.  When I went to I saw a fun project I had to try.  It was a glass block "jack o lantern"...she did a really good video on how she created it.  I didn't have any black vinyl so I just went an got a jack o lantern face off the web and made a pattern.  I had some white sticky back paper that we had thrown away at work and I dug it out of the trash!! (imagine that!) always a scrappin' plan in mind...I took black card stock and cut it out and put it on the sticky back white paper and wa-la I had a black face with a sticky back paper....then of course I used just a orange celo. paper out of the craft section at Hobby Lobby, put in a string of 20 lights and tied a spooky bow and a polka dot bow!!  I had alot of fun doing these and they were quiet easy to do...I have more projects to share so I'll see you soon...thanks for stopping by!!!
