Autumn Doormat

I wanted a new doormat to welcome guests during autumn. I love a DIY doormat. One of the very first projects I created on this blog was a Personalized Doormat. They’re easy to decorate and a wonderful way to personalize your entryway. I picked up this natural tan mat from my local hardware store. You can also give a worn out existing mat a facelift using this technique. First, I spray painted it gold. After the gold […]

Candy Wrapper Cart

Save those Halloween candy wrappers! You’ll need them for this DIY cart. Luckily, I have a friend on the inside who scored me these Tootsie Roll Pop wrappers. This wheeled cart is perfect for Halloween, but with different styling can be used year round. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see the cart decked out this way. Ok, friends, I must admit this project is a little more complex and […]

Candy Corn Pingpong Ball Art

I don’t like the way candy corn tastes, but I love the way it looks. That’s why I made this candy corn inspired art piece. It’s the perfect compliment to my Candy Corn Topiaries. My friends like to give me odds and ends to craft with. I inherited the colored pingpong balls used in this project that way. You can find them online fairly easily with a simple Google search. The amount needed depends on the […]

Dollar Store Halloween Wreaths

Looking for some inexpensive Halloween decor? These three wreaths are sure to impress and won’t break the bank. Believe it or not, all of the items to make them came from Dollar Tree! For the fringed wreath, I picked up two orange and black fringed garlands, a battery operated light up Halloween lantern and a 10 inch foam floral wreath. First, using some black ribbon that I also purchased at Dollar Tree, I hung the lantern […]

In addition to being stylish, he’s inexpensive and easy to make. Plus, he looks great blowing in the wind!

Coffee Can Halloween Luminaries

I was recently gifted a bunch of old coffee cans from a friend who thought I might be able to use them for various projects. He was right! I’ve definitely got a few in mind, but these Halloween luminaries are the first. Aren’t they adorable? I love an easy and affordable project. Did you notice they have marble eyes? They look so cool when lit up from inside. Be sure to scroll to the bottom […]

Pumpkin Pails

I started working on these three pumpkin pails back in September and just now completed them a week before Halloween. So, after all that time and work, I think they are deserving of their own blog post. I’m so pleased with how they turned out. Each one with it’s own kooky style and personality. The first thing I did was pick up these cuttable foam pumpkins at the dollar store. It’s hard to imagine this […]

Candy Corn Topiary

Let’s be honest. Candy corn is nasty tasting, but so adorable to look at it! I filled this jar up about a month ago and have only ate about three of them. Anyways, their good looks inspired me to make these candy corn topiaries. This craft is perfect if you are in need of some last minute Halloween decor. A forest of these candy corn topiaries would make a wonderful centerpiece. Here’s what you’ll need […]
