spooky halloween wishes....


we go straight from summer weather to fall in one day here, it dropped 20 degrees last night. definitely feeling like fall around here with a wet snow coming down outside!
i am so excited about october and halloween. i made this little spooky card today to send with my halloween packages. the old owl is a vintage dennison seal i found.
i have started a messy project/experiment that i hope to finish this week. i bought these great paper mache halloween treat containers and wanted to try making a smaller version.



i started with small peat pot containers i had left over and dipped them in a thin plaster mixture. here they are drying and waiting for a coat of paint.
i think i will add some paper clay to the faces to add some noses and other features.

i had in mind to use this copper and black wired tinsel for the handles.


if all goes well i will post a tutorial how to make your own.
happy fall day, julie

Julie, you should bottle up your creativity, and sell it by the ounce in your etsy shop. Reserve a listing for me; would you? ;)

These are so, so stinkin' cute!

"Yes, please!" on the tutorial! I can tell already that they're going to look awesome. I don't get into too much Halloween decorating, but I love rustic and/or vintage-y Halloween stuff like this.
