I am one of those people who REALLY dislikes clutter and yes, I am a clean freak. So when the nik naks, and hanging art gets to be too much for me I tend to pack. Weeelllllll sigh.... I did that last spring when I was cleaning. In doing so I packed away a huge box of my Halloween decorations. I am here to tell you I have some very cool hand made and store bought decorations. Can I find that box? NOOOO. I have looked in every storage box we have. I am very good about putting a number on the boxes and then logging what is in them in a book I have. Okayyyyy so I am anal about this. LOL However, I can not find my Halloween box. It is to the point of driving me nuts. In the meantime I have to have something to hang on the door and in my windows. Today I made a Halloween wreath and a pretty skull bow. This was a fun day.
The wreath still needs a hanging system which will be a chain I have.
The skull is from Dollar Tree. The eyes light up and change colors. It is so cool for a buck.
I made the top hat out of my Nicole's BeadBacking.
Artificial flowers from Walmart $1.50 each.
Pumpkins for the hat are stick on from the Dollar Tree.
Ribbon I had on hand.
Glitter tarantulas from the Dollar Tree. They are quite large.
Hey it has to be crawling up a plastic bone. Yep Dollar Tree.
The second trantual is on the hand from the arm bone. Yes I broke it. LOL
They are actually salad tongs there are two of them.
Glass eyes I had left over from my beading days.
This silver and diamond hand is actually a bracelet that I wear. It clips around my wrist and fit perfectly on the wreath. I will remove it after Halloween. Or of course if I need to wear it.
This is another glitter skull and bow from Dollar Tree. I attached the skull to the bow, made a top hat and a hanger on the back. His eyes light up and change color too.
Oh and the jaw moves too.
I love it when I can find inexpensive items to create something I love.
What are you doing for Halloween?
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
