October 2...Craftiness

Hello my fellow ghouls, welcome back to my crypt for day 2 of the Halloween countdown.







Today, as most of this week, I will be talking about some of my crafty projects I have done to get prepared for this month of fun.

Recently I was thrift store shopping. Don't you just love thrift stores? Anyway, I came across a packaged bit of wood pieces for $3. The package had cut out pumpkins and some other assorted pieces plus twine in it. I knew I could do something with it so, I brought them home with me. 


As I started looking at them, I realized that the pieces made a cute Halloween pumpkin box. My hubby decided to take on the task of putting one together and painting it.





I on the other hand saw something completely different with the pieces. What I saw was a Fall Harvest Mobile.

I gathered my Fall paints and went at it with a fever.







After I finished each piece to my satisfaction, I strung them with the twine that had been included in the packaging.  I hung them in my sliding glass doors and wha-la!




I painted some additional pumpkin pieces and hung them from my kitchen chandelier. I will be adding more to the chandelier but that is for a post later in this week.




Believe it or not, I still have tons of the wood pieces left. I am hoping to invite a friend and her kids over sometime this month for a pumpkin party. I am going to let them paint some and take home. Stay tuned!

Come by tomorrow and see what is lurking around the crypt.

  1. I love those kind of stores! What a find! That is so cool, and hubby to jump right in there with you is too cool! I'm a loner when it comes to decorating. That's what I get for marrying a musician. Oh well! WHAT FUN!
