Halloween Pennant Garland from Paint Chip Samples

27 Sep
I have another SIMPLE paint chip project for y’all, this adorable Halloween Pennant Garland.  I used a ruler to measure and trace lines to cut the triangles.  Then found stencils online of pumpkins and bats.  YES, those are the same pumpkins and bats I used from my Spooky Halloween Branch and for the Sentimental Halloween Wreath

I glued the pumpkins and bats onto the triangles.  Then glued the triangles to a strip of black hemp cord.  See, I told y’all it was SIMPLE!! 



Super cute, right?  What do you think??

Spooky Halloween Paint Chip Branch Mobile

26 Sep

Remember the Fall Branch Paint Chip Mobile I made??  Ann from Make The Best of Things left me a sweet comment with suggestions for Halloween, Christmas and Valentines Day.  Well….here’s HALLOWEEN!!  


I LOVE IT!! I grabbed another branch from outside.  Which, in the drought we are in right now in TX, it’s really easy to find a branch just laying around!!  I spray painted it black.  Traced some pumpkin and bat stencils I found online.  Then traced them onto some paint chips and cut out the bats and pumpkins.  SIDE NOTE: something I learned from the fall branch, make sure when using your stencils that you flip them from each side.  Otherwise they wont fit together smoothly.  Then I hot glued a piece of black hemp cord ( you could use black string or ribbon too) on the inside and then stuck the other half of the paint chip on top.  Then I strung up my branch.  I hung it from the ceiling and it just looked funny.  So, I strung it up to the wall.  I’m sure it would look great in a black vase too.  Once it was up I started to sting up my pumpkins and bats.  I LOVE my little Halloween display. 

What do you think??  I’m really happy with it!!  Wouldn’t it look great with some webbing and maybe some black bats and grayish white skulls!!?  I need to go find some more branches! 🙂

Halloween Ribbon Topiary

26 Sep

This cute little Halloween ribbon topiary is super easy to make!  I followed the tutorial here.   Found the cute Halloween ribbon here

I didn’t have as much ribbon as needed.  Which is why mine it’s a perfect little fluffy ball, BUT I still love it. I spray painted a little terracotta planter, some floral moss from the dollar store and a straw black.  Then hot glued my ball of ribbons onto the straw.  SO EASY!! 

Super cute right??

My Sentimental Halloween Wreath

23 Sep

Do y’all remember this cute tutu I made Alie two years ago??

*sigh* OH, my cute lil girl!!  It’s also the FIRST tutu I ever made and her first tutu also!!  Obviously, it doesn’t fit any longer.  And so I came up with a way to SAVE it.  I made a Halloween Wreath out of it.  So, now we will always have that first lil tutu! 
It was really easy too!  I just took off all the little strips. Which, if you follow 90% of the tutu tutorials out there, the strips will just slide off and open once you cut the elastic.  Then I used this wreath form. 

I realized I was going to have to cover the wreath with something.

I didn’t have any burlap.  I didn’t have any fabric or ribbon that I wanted to hide under tulle.  So, I tore strips of orange tissue paper and glued it to the wreath.

Then I tied the tulle strips on the wreath.  Added an orange ribbon.  And made an orange moon and black bat out of some left over paint chip samples. 

SO CUTE RIGHT??  I love it!

My daughter is a Princess!!

26 Oct

Who isn’t struggling financial right now?!!  With Halloween around the corner, David and I were a little worried about what to do for our sweet little Alie.  She is ALL THINGS PRINCESS right now.  We found a few cute princess costumes for $20.  Which is still pretty steep for a poorly made costume.  Have you ever noticed how cheap the material is or how cheaply they are thrown together.  Last Halloween she was a little Halloween Ballerina.  I made her an orange and black tutu and paired it with a cute Halloween shirt and a pair of black tights.  My husband works at Grand Canyon University, so we attended the GCU Fall Festival last year.  Alie the Halloween Ballerina, was a TOTAL HIT. SO….I think, I can make her a tutu princess!  As I looked for inspiration online, the concept morphed a little into a long tutu princess dress.  I used a shirt she already had.  I made a long white and pink tulle tutu and attached it to the top.  I stitched stain ribbon on the shirt’s sleeves and collar.   I attached satin ribbon over the area, then I attached the skirt to the top.  Since I am ALL ABOUT the rosettes right now, I made a BUNCH!  I glued them onto the ribbon waist.  I also made a bouquet of different rosettes to go over  some embroidery that was on her shirt.  Then I attached some ribbons to the shirt and a large ribbon in the back as a tie.  She LOVES it.  I LOVE IT!  It was so much fun making it for her.  I feels so sweet knowing I made that for her.  OH and the total cost was $14!!  Did you know Dollar Tree sells tulle and ribbons!??  I got the pink tulle at Walmart, 65 yards for $6!

This is Alie’s Halloween Tutu I made her last year.


Alie’s Mommy made Princess Costume!












So cute right?  Now, I can’t wait to make her something next year!  My hubby knows all I want for Christmas is a sewing machine.  I can’t wait to make pretty stuff for our princess!  I would love to hear what you think?  Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Pinwheel Flowers

12 Oct

The area over Alie’s closet is just so drab. 
I wanted to liven it up a bit for her.  I was singing her to sleep one night.  I looked up and saw the pinwheels I made for her hanging over her bed and I had an epiphany! 
I could make some for the area over her closet.  As I thought of the paper to use I remembered that I had purchased some Halloween scrapbook paper at Target for $1.  I could use that and create a little flower patch for her.  Then I thought I could change it with the seasons and Holidays. 

One day while looking through links I came across these adorable Baby Mobile Pinwheels by Kat at Measuring My Life in Love.  I was inspired to make some for our sweet baby girl.
These are some of the first ones I made.  These hang over her bed.
First, I moved her cross here.
 I got busy.  I made some pinwheels from the Halloween paper.  Then I took construction paper in orange and black and made the grass, stems and leaves from it. 
This is how it turned out. Alie LOVES it!
Like I mentioned above, I am going to change this with the seasons and holidays. I already have fall ready to go! What do you think??

Halloween Wreath

11 Oct

Now that I have learned how to make crepe paper roses from the tutorial from The House of Smith’s I can’t stop making them. They are so simple and sweet. Alie loves them too. I came across this Flower Wreath  by Bugaboo Mini Mr & Me. I love her method of making the roses. She does them the fabric rosette way. Using inspiration from her adorable Farewell to Summer wreath, I made my sister this Halloween Wreath.
