I love Halloween, mums and vintage stuff. I put them all together with this project to make a trio of Jack-O-Lantern Planters with vintage inspired pumpkin faces. I received the paint for free as part of the DecoArt Blogger Outreach Program. If you follow me on Instagram this is the paint Mary dumped on the floor while I was canning tomatoes. [Read more…]
We’ve reached the point where I’m turning kitchen recyclables into Halloween stuff (this isn’t even the only project I’ve got this year using tin cans). My husband is just happy I’m not buying anything. This project is in the kid-friendly Halloween category. There is a bit of a wait with all the paint drying but you can put this together in an afternoon.
I’m off my game (again!) I’m always ready for Halloween in August and then I blink and it’s October 20th. My kid doesn’t even have a costume! For the record she’s going to be a bat and the fabric is
somewhere on my kitchen table. I was feeling like a Halloween failure so I put on Hocus Pocus and got to baking. You’ve probably made a version of these cookies, I’ve seen them called peanut butter blossoms but growing up we called them the kiss cookies.
If I told you I didn’t have Halloween decorations in mind when I designed and built the chicken run I’d be lying. It was barely done before I strung it up with with twinkle lights. I considered putting my giant spider webs down there but considering how often the geese go barreling though where they are in front I didn’t think they’d last long that close to the barn (the geese are no longer cute and tiny). I needed a new idea and it just so happens that a few years ago I saw a few pictures of ring-around-the-rosy style ghosts and fell in love. I wanted to do something like that but I wasn’t sure where or how. After we finished the run the where became pretty apparent but the how was still eluding me.
