Halloween Crafts Through the Years

As promised, I thought I would do a compilation-Post of some of my favorite Halloween crafts. I used a stamp set to make the paperdoll, below.
I bought some ceramic hands at a thrift store and decided to spray them white to put into my Halloween vignettes.


Here's a tiny "instant ancestor" I found at the local Antique Store. I just made her a little more fancy. : )

Spider webs can be made from thin rope.

I love to make decorated Bingo Cards!


My "instant relative" again, decorated a different way.
Someone used Scrapbooking supplies to embellish this pumpkin, below. Sara and I took this pic while visiting a cute shop a couple years ago.
Thanks to the Blog, 'Stuff by Ash', I made this with the kiddos last year.


This is how I made my Boo Jars.



And......couldn't resist showing my latest creations, which I finished at (?) a.m. last night. :-D


I hope you found some inspiration here today. Have a good one!

So cute! And I love the tweetheart at the end. I keep going back to your shop, looking for a tweetheart that would go perfectly in corners of my house. Can't special order one because I don't have a specific place in mind...they call to me from your shop and tell me where they want to 'live'. :)

You have some lovely ideas and I became a follower almost as soon as I opened your blog. However, I had to laugh at the glittered skull. I bought a glittered skull from the dollar store and I'm now endeavouring to turn it back into looking like a bone one...

Terry said...

Your wreath is so pretty.
I am not sure what the rose is, but if I were to guess think maybe a old fashioned cabbage rose of some sort because of its shape.
