Floral facelift.

Hiya, bone daddy!

 When in doubt...Mod Podge!

It's skull-tastic!

Why so blue in the face?

Night of the Living Graveyard!

Create the scene of a spooky miniature cemetery and watch it come to life!
All you need is chia seeds, soil, water, love...and death.

We originally wanted to do this on a long narrow tray but couldn't find the right match...then we found a small glass ashtray from the dollar store and our vision was reborn!

We filled the ashtray with soil and a hearty pinch of chia seeds and added mini gravestones and pumpkins from Michaels.
Gave it lots of sunlight and kept the soil moist with a spray bottle.

It took about 3 days to start seeing sprouts!

It's alive! It's alive!!!!!

All dressed up and nowhere to crow.

We turned these dollar store crows into a million dollar store crows.

Spooky yet sophisticated. 

We used inexpensive beading and jewelry, paint and wire to dress them to the nines! 

Aren't they are cute couple? 

We've got elegance.  If you ain't got elegance, you can never ever carry it off!

You rang?

Happy October!
Time to set the mood for Halloween!

We found these brass candelabras at a thrift store and it was love at first fright!

A little black metalic paint and violá!

There's a light...over at the Frankenstien place.

Boo to you!

We love big and bold...who doesn't?!

Using inspiration from our summer candle...we added a Halloween twist!
All it took were some address letters and a candle we had around the apartment.

Double-sided ghostly greetings!

Isn't it SPOOK-tacular?!

Minute Mums.

Happy fall! 
This year we jumped right into decorating for Halloween, but we didn't want to "leaf" the first day of fall behind.  After all, this day is the kick off to our favorite months ahead!

We turned scrap crepe paper into festive fall mini mums! 

First we fringed the crepe paper and then rolled them up to create our mums!
We used floral wire and tape to create the stems.

Mums the word!
