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! 🙂

Thankful Surprises

29 Nov

For years now a family favorite at Thanksgiving is my pumpkin cheesecake. 


I make it two ways layered and swirled. 

Over the years, I have discovered there is ALWAYS a lot left over in the bowl before I bake them.  It’s so good to lick the spoon, but I’m not sure how safe it is to eat a bowl of raw cheesecake batter.  This year, I decided to make my hubby and daughter a ‘lil  Thanksgiving surprise. 

I baked the remaining batter in these cute ‘lil heart shaped foil baking liners I had.  I wanted to make them look like a present, so I gathered some scrapbook paper, construction paper, scissors, glue, fall ribbon and our espresso shot glass to stencil the circles. 
I glued the circles together and wrote their names on the tags.  BUT they need a ‘lil something don’t they?
I cut out some ‘lil leaves from another sheet of scrapbook paper.  Doesn’t that look better?
If you’re a jewelry maker, then you must have a bead reamer. They make GREAT hole punchers too!
TA-DA!!! Aren’t they cute?? 
This is the ‘lil yummy surprise inside!
They both LOVED them. It was just a ‘lil extra something just for them to let them know I love them and I am so very thankful for them both. 

I’m having a celebration GIVEAWAY!!!! I’m giving away some of my new Christmas Jewelry! Check it out here and enter!
