I'm playing at one last blog party this season. Today is the I Made This! Hallowe'en Craft blog party at The Domestic Pagan. Thank you to Serenity Raven for hosting. I'm also doing this as a Spooky Mondays post for Wendy at Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland!
I thought I would share something old and something new. I already showed you the spooky fence cutouts on my last post. Since I found a few more missing pieces I wanted to post newer pictures here.
I had more birds, bats, cats and the bottom grass borders tucked away.
I made these about 6 or 7 years ago. You might recognize the crows and bats from Martha Stewart's Halloween line. Before she started selling them as ready to use cutouts she had the patterns in one of the October issues of her magazine. So I made lots of bats, crows, owls and cats from foam. Then I thought it would be fun to put them on a fence. I used to always put these up outside around my front door but this year I decided to put them on my wall so I can look at them all the time!
The creepy ghoul above the fence is this guy. He was a last minute project my son and I threw together this weekend after checking the stores for clearance stuff.
We picked up a couple of foam skulls and grey net spooky fabric for $2 each. Then I rounded up some wire hangers and we made our own hanging ghouls.
A few went by the front door to scare the little trick-or-treaters which is what my son loves to do.
This is another project from a few years ago that I use almost every year. I made witchy bell sleeves from black glittery velvet and cotton gauze.
The top has an elastic band so they go right over whatever top I'm wearing when I want to witchify my outfit.
This is how they looked for my Halloween carnival paired up with a chocolate brown bridal skirt I found at the thrift store for $3.
Since tonight is also a full moon I wanted to give you a peek at one more thing I made for the Halloween carnival.
I painted and embellished a little paper mache box. Then I made this tag to go along with a treat that's on it's way to someone enchanting out there.
Thank you for stopping by for this one last Halloween fling. Don't forget to visit Serenity for the rest of the party participants.
Full Moon blessings and Happy Spooky Monday
