HALLOWEEN FUN TODAY

Hi Everyone!

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?

  2. Oh Sigh...I was trying to find a witch hat yesterday that I KNOW I have. It's in a small tote with lots of skellies and other items back in the storage room. If I can't find it, I'll buy another. Brother. But a trip to the Dollar Tree store is always a treat to find other new decorations. I need foil pans anyway, lol.

    LOVE that bracelet!!
