Sometimes my creativity runs out.
In particular, I have trouble coming up with anything original for Halloween.
So instead, I stalked some blogs and copied some things.
Hooray for plagiarism!
Even if it does make me feel like a (hallo)weenie. LOL
First - this adorable "Trick or Treat Frame" from Crafts & Sutch
I made my own - and I love it :)
Next - I loved these cute "Scrap Spookies" from Diary of a Preppy Mom
So I copied them, too.
The Pumpkin (mine had a wood stem and glitter in the paint)
The Mummy (mine is wrapped in white burlap instead of muslin, and I used buttons for eyes)
The Frankenstein (no fabric on mine, and he has button eyes like the Mummy)
I did manage to come up with one additional scrap spookie...
A Bat! (his wings are cut from leftover hardboard)
The one original Halloween decoration I made this year was a wreath for my front door.
I died black tulle (and a tiny spot of purple, for interest) around a metal wreath. In the middle I attached a metal spiderweb I've had for years. Then I added some scary spiders. I love it!
Happy Halloween, everyone! And thanks to Erin @ Craft & Sutch and to Preppy Mom for making such cute projects! I had a blast copying them :)
