More Halloween treats!

Isn't he cute? :) Here's another project I finished up last night, inspired by Joy over here. (She does amazing projects, check her out!)

I started with this loot:

I cut, glittered, taped and stickered till I got this...

This was a nice surprise -- I was going to make this:

But when I unpacked Halloween stuff, I found this (I bought it last year on clearance):

Don't you love when that happens?! I added a few little ornaments and love it!

Remember this? I finally just printed out letters and made my own stencils to make this:

This project was easy as pie -- frames, paper I loved and a tiny bit of paint. This area is done!:

(And don't doubt for one second that that big, nasty cord sticking straight out isn't driving me BATTY!!)


  1. Looks so beautiful! Love the warm glow from the lights :)

    I think you may have gotten that idea from Joy at Joys of Home blog, but not sure.

    I still need to take out my Halloween box of crapola, haha. I don't think I will have any neat clearanced surprises in there, I really slacked off the past few years in decorating...just now getting back into the swing of things and am loving every minute of it :)

    I so enjoy your blog :)
