As I have mentioned, I am having a home sale this week, Home and Harvest.
I have spent the last several weeks putting together some items for the sale.
I already shared my Halloween Wreaths with you.
So, now, I thought I would share my Halloween Crafts since Kate is having a Fall Crafts link party, I thought I would share both of them tonight.
For my first project, I was originally inspired by Pottery Barn.
I started with a hat found at Party City and a candle pedestal found at a discount store.
I attached the hat at angle (after the hat was assembled) using hot glue.
I used a black and white houndstooth ribbon around the base as the first step.
Then I continued with some fabric flowers in orange and black (orange is really hard to photograph I have found!) and then I layered in sparkly branches (from floral picks), glitter leaves (also from floral picks), black feathers, and then I added the spider, crow and rat on top.
Here is a view from the other side.
I think it makes a fun table top display that is something a little different.
Speaking of something different…
Not sure how I ended up here…
For this one, I started with a long vintage black glove. I had purchased a box lot at an auction, and this lone glove was in with a bunch of other ones.
I stuffed the glove and put pipe cleaners in the fingers so they would be somewhat moldable.
This picture shows the underside to see it better.
I sewed the glove closed and then I added a ruffled orange tulle fabric, glittered ribbon to the bottom.
Then I layered ribbon around the “wrist” and “finger”.
This gives a picture of the glove standing up.
I will not deny, this was really hard to get a decent photo of.
Then, like above, I started with a fabric flower, this one alternating between black silk and the orange tulle.
I also did a ruffled effect below the flower.
And then the layering began - sparkly branches, glittered leaves and black feathers.
I topped it off with a small crow and the crowning jewel, a spider ring.
I am sharing these projects over at Kate’s Blog, Centsational Girl, stop on by and see all the great fall crafts.
I will also be sharing at some of the great like parties you can find here.
Thanks for stopping by!
