Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to Scrappin' Kat's Halloween Blog Hop!
You probably came here from Adels's blog -
I'm happy to share some of my Halloween ideas with you -
This is one of my favorite pieces of wall-art, or mixed media, if you want to call it that - I picked up the frame at goodwill and painted it a rich ornagey-red color [the mat was included] and printed the photo at poster size and cut it into a silhouette. I placed it on a large piece of white paper [from Hobby Lobby, my go-to store] and framed it. 'Halloween' is a piece wooden letters cut from seasonal decor, again from HL, and 'happy' is cut from cricut - both of these are glued to the outside of the frame. Love it. Especially now that our boys are in their 20s.Here are my pumpkins - made of foam! I'm not sure where the jack-o-lantern came from he laughs and flashes when activated by motion. The other pumpkins are from Michaels - I've had them for years. I cut a hand-drawn star out of paper and used it as a pattern to randomly draw stars all over the pumpkins. Then I used a regular knife to cut them out, stuffed them with Christmas lights, voila - fall pumpkins! These actually stay out front until after Thanksgiving.
And last, but not least are these little vintage goodies. I searched 'vintage halloween' and saved the images in a file then printed out my favorites and put them on pieces of black card stock and tied them on ribbon around half-pint jars filled with candy corn. [How's that for a run-on sentence? LOL]Quick - easy - fun gifties!

I'd love to see what kinds of Halloween goodies you've created - please share a link so I can see them! Also, be sure to scroll [waaaaaaaay] down to my Once a Month Giveaway post to leave a comment for a flat-rate box choked full of fun!

Now it's time to continue the Halloween fun as you hop on over to Kari's blog for more fun!
