Fall Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fall/Halloween Blog Hop. If you just came from Denine's blog, Pumpkin and Spice then you are on the right track. If you get lost along the way, please visit our fabulous host Nicolette at Beyond Scrapin' for the complete line up.

I have recently been on a wreath making kick. I made one for halloween and now I have decided to make a fall wreath for this hop.

I bought this grapvine wreath for 40% off at Michaels as well as the berry and gold twigs for .99 cents each. I used 6 each of the twigs and wired them on securely with floral wire. I also used a little hot glue to secure them where needed.


I also found an "H" to use for .99 cents. It was white but I decided to glitz it up just a little with some gold and gold glitter acrylic paints. 


Here is my "H" after I blinged it up. I then glued it the wreath with some E6000. 

I found some beautiful wired ribbon for 1/2 off to use for my bow and viola....Here's my fall wreath.

Now on to some halloween themed blog candy.

To win my candy simply become a follower and leave a comment including your email addy. Easy Peasy!!

Next, hop on over to Kari's blog PurpleFuntastick Creations.
Enjoy the hop!

Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of the Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop. If you just came from Janice's Blog: www.cricutconfessions.com then you are on the right track. If you get lost along the way, please visit our fabulous host Kathryn at www.creationswithkathryn.com for the complete lineup.

My project for today is a super easy paper strip pumpkin. These pumpkins would be a fabulous craft to do with your little ones as well. For this pumpkin I used 12 paper strips (2"x12"). You can get 6 strips from 1 piece of 12x12 cardstock.


I created an svg file of some leaves and vines. I then cut them with my beast...the Lynx. I attached them to the top of the pumpkin along with a ribbon and raffia bow. To download the free leaves/vines for this pumpkin click the following link: PUMPKIN LEAVES
For a great tutorial on making these cute punkin's, visit All Free Holiday Crafts.


Like I said, these are so super easy to make and look great as home decor. 

Now, onto some blog candy....

Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of the Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop. If you just came from Janice's Blog: www.cricutconfessions.com then you are on the right track. If you get lost along the way, please visit our fabulous host Kathryn at www.creationswithkathryn.com for the complete lineup.

I couldn't wait to get started on my project for this hop. I have been watching some amazingly talented crafters make some fabulous holiday wreaths online, so I decided to make a halloween wreath for our front door. I wanted to do something a little different with this one. I used the materials you see here. All of these items were on sale at Micheals for 40% to 50% off. The price made this wreath even more tempting to work on! The wreath form shown is 12" in diameter. I used about 14 spools of 1" ribbon (3yds ea). The wider the ribbon, the less you have to use.


I cut the ribbon into 6" long strips and began tying them randomly around the wire wreath form.

Next, I painted the letters and glued them to the skeleton so that it looked like he was holding them.

Lastly, I made this decorative bow from this sparkly black ribbon to finish off the look of the wreath.

And here is what it looks like all finished. I love it!! I am thinking about purchasing some battery powered lights to add to it as well.


It did take some time to tie all the ribbon on, but after I finished it, I really love the look of it!! I am thinking of doing one for Christmas as well.

Now, onto some blog candy....
