Mummy Jars using Oly-Fun

Good morning everyone - I am back again today with another Halloween project. I have a couple more up my sleeve this year. I am going all out on the Halloween Decorations! I may need to have a party to show all these great projects off,,,,

Anyway. Today we are blog hopping with Designer Crafts Connection and Fairfield World - there are some amazing projects along the way so be sure to check them all out.

I needed a few Mummy candle jars to light up the hearth. I have a really LARGE hearth - it is 12' wide so I try to put some substantial decorations on it for each season. I grabbed a few supplies and got to work.

I used White Oly-Fun, Mason Jars, Perfect Pearls Mist, google eyes, and adhesive.

I cut my Oly-Fun into random sized strips, piled them up and gave a few spritzes with the Perfect Pearls.

Next up I wrapped the strips around several sizes of jars, tucking the ends to secure. I added google eyes to finish them off. Tea lights in the bottom of the jars complete the look.

I added ribbons to my candlesticks, tossed in some fun pumpkins, and lit my tea candles. I am super happy with how these came out - if I can just keep the wolfhound from eating them before Halloween all will be well.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Halloween Lantern with Etchall

Hi everyone, I am all about the Halloween projects this month and I think this one if my favorite so far. I knew I wanted to etch something fabulous for my tablescape for Halloween and had been looking for the perfect item when I stumbled across this lantern at HomeGoods.

And it was on clearance.

Marked down THREE times.

It was a sign y'all.

I grabbed some supplies from Etchall and went to work. Here is the finished project, I am super happy with how it turned out!

 The lantern itself is 18" tall, then I added about another foot of stuff on top!

etchall® has a great selection of products to help you make amazing etched pieces.


I started by cutting my etchall® etchmask using my Cameo machine, then used the Transfer paper to move it over to the glass. I had removed the front piece of glass from the lantern to make it easier to etch. Next I applied etchall® etching creme to the surface and let it sit for 15 minutes. As you can see the creme is brown - this is because it changes color in the summer heat. After 15 minutes I removed the excess creme back into the bottle and rinsed the surface clean.

Here is how the etch came out- I am loving the way this looks.

Of course since I had spider webs I needed some cute spiders on them. Now, I really, REALLY, REALLY hate spiders, but I made a exception for these bejeweled ones.

Here is a look at the floral arrangement I made on top of the lantern. Who doesn't love sparkly deco mesh???

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to hop over to the Etchall Facebook page and see all the amazing things going on there.

My Little Pumpkin with Deflecto Crafts

I am gearing up for Halloween and I have so many cute things I wanna make this year I am sure I will never get them all done!   One thing that was at the top of my top of list was this cute frame for the Princess' photo.

I used a 4x6 Craft Frame from Deflecto for this easy project.

This project was so simple! First off I added some pattern paper to the inside of the frame- this is some vintage Bo Bunny that I have been hoarding. Next I added the white accents around the frame opening, the stickers, the fall accents, and the buttons. To tie it all together I wrapped some paper ribbon around the bottom of the frame and tied it in a big bow.  I cropped my photo down, matted it on  black cardstock and adhere in the center on the front of the frame. This way I can change the photo out from year to year.


I also added white accents to the stickers used for the title. My favorite is a Signo White Pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the Deflecto Facebook page for more great project ideas!

Flamingo Mosaic - Memories in Glass

Hi everyone - it is the first Monday of the month so that means it is time for a hop with Designer Crafts Connections. This month's theme is Vacation Memories. 

http://designercraftsconnection.blogspot.com/
 On a mini vacation with one of my BFF's we stopped in a cute little shop off the town square in Waxahachie, TX - Mosaic Dreams. After wandering around for a bit, the owner approached us and asked if we would like to make a mosaic. WE looked at each other and said "Sure!". Here is what I made

We seriously had the best afternoon making these projects. The owner handed us old fashioned lunch room trays - the ones with all the dividers - and we were able to walk around her fabulous store and pick the items we wanted for our project. She had such a treasure trove of stuff!

Of course being the memory keeper that I am, I had to record what happened somewhere,,,,,,,

So I just flipped the finished piece over and did my journaling right on the back. This fabulous piece hangs on the wall of my studio right by my work desk where I can see it every single day. It always makes me happy!

Be sure to check out all the amazing projects on the hop this month- use the arrows under the Designer Crafts Connection logo in my sidebar to the right to navigate through the hop.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend!
