A Few Halloween Decorations I Made

Happy Friday everyone, I am so excited about all the fun holiday activities my family and I will be doing this weekend.. Well, I thought today I would share a few of the fun Halloween Decorations I made this year.. I actually got back into painting a bit and I forgot how much I love doing it.. So, my be seeing some hand painted Christmas project in the future :0)

This was a paper mache' hat box a picked up at Hobby Lobby for $3.99 and
I hand painted it with some acrylic paint.. I love how he turned out and
I will most likely be making more next year :0)

These were so fun to make.. I bought some paper lanterns from Hobby Lobby & Michael's (the white and green were only $1) .. I hand painted
these with acrylic

This was an oil lamp that was on clearance at Big Lots for like 50 cents..
So, took the wire handle off and I decorated it with a fun Halloween sticker label
from EAD Designs , elastic black trim, and a wine cork..

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog.. Oh, don't forget Halloween Week going on at Crafty Sprouts this week and my new "Getting Scrappy Challenge" will start next Sunday Nov. 6th..

This stuff is all wonderful! I keep wanting to paint things, but I'm afraid I will suck. *LOL* I think I just need to put my big girl panties on and give it a try if I have half a shot of making things this cute :)
