Thank You, Kind Blogger!

I recently came across this adorable idea from 'Stuff By Ash'. Thanks so much, "Ash"!

"Ash" even went to the trouble of making this great "materials needed" chart!
Newest "member of the Gang". I couldn't resist this little guy after seeing yours last year, Joyce.

These cute little candy corns are actually gummi-candies from our local Hallmark store...and recently reduced to $2.97 a bag. : )
Still waiting on all the wedding photos. Can hardly wait!

A Blast From the Past

Still trying to recoup from the Wedding. In the meantime, I thought I would share the following from Halloween, 2009. Enjoy!
A Spooky Little Tutorial:

This project above, came from the magazine below.
On page 111.
As you can see, the two jars on the right came from Goodwill, but the third came from a half-off sale at Michael's.
I typed the word "Boo" in several fonts, but settled on this one which is called 'LD Type keys'.

I wanted the jars to look like they were on little pedestals, so I put them on glass candlestick holders. Also, I needed the candy corn to keep the papers in place.

Martha Stewart inspiration below...glitter up your skeleton heads for a more "bewitching" effect.

Next, I took a "Poison" label that I got from the "Graphics Fairy" and glued it onto an old bottle.

I got this idea (below) of putting the moon face on a clock from another Halloween magazine, but I can't remember which one.

Just a little poly stuffing in the glass to look like a foggy-brew of some sort.
Happy Haunting. : )
