Seriously like the CUTEST thing I have ever made … besides my son of course :)


Ok, so I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this turned out!!! I’ve had my eye on the set of 5 paper mache nesting boxes but I never really knew what I would do with them. Anyway, I went to JoAnn’s today with the intentions of getting the material for Bucket’s skunk costume and while I was gathering it all up I realized that the costume was way too intense and expensive for a 7 month old, so I scrapped it and walked around. I had my 40% and 50% off coupons so I decided to spring for the boxes (usually $20 but only $10 with the coupon, SCORE, I’m going back for another set with my other coupon).I love Halloween but have never really had a lot of decorations for it so I decided these boxes would become something SPOOKTACULAR!! The scrapbook paper at JoAnn’s is horrifying (and I really mean it, they have one little aisle). So, I went to Roberts and picked up the paper and some of the little things that I used to embellish. All of the Halloween Decor was 50% off, ANOTHER SCHORE!! I bought the skulls at the Dollar store, great find!!I started by covering all the boxes in the paper AND lots of decoupage and then went to work stacking and decorating!! The googly eyes on the Bottom Box are SUPER FUN … Kinda time consuming to wrap all the paper and then to put a few good coats of decoupage but super easy!! Seriously, my mom is trying to talk me into letting her have it so she can decorate her office with it … I am totally going to make some Christmas ones and probably even Thanksgiving, just because I love how these turned out.

Spooky Monsters


Funny story about these guys … I was doing my usual late night craft blog reading and I came across these cute little guys, at this site. They are just empty jars, tissue paper, mod-podge and black paper TOTALLY EASY. Click here for the HOWTO. Anyway, I knew that I was going to make them and seriously the next day I got an email from the Relief Society saying that we were making these for an upcoming craft night. HAHA funny right? Well maybe not really, but I thought it was.

Anyway, she shows them with white twinkle ligts strung in them but I like the tea-lite idea better because I can move them wherever I want and I don’t have to worry about the cord sticking out. Seriously, you should make these, they would even be a cute little neighbor gift or something.

Spooky Halloween Decor



I had some extra 6×6 wooden plaque’s lying around so I thought I would make this cute little Frankenstein Door or Wall or anywhere you like Hanger. I hand painted the Boo and the frankenstein (I’m sure you can tell by the clumpy paint, it took a few re-dos) then I sanded the edges, drilled 2 holes, added some ribbon and that was it!! The finished result turned out just like I envisioned. But next time I will use glow in the dark paint for the Boo so it will be extra Spooky. I think I may hang it on the Mail Center in the entry way upstairs … I will post a pic of wherever I decide to rest it for the next month.
