Halloween Finds and crafts
I found this cute little wooden witch at the TS today. The arm holding the cat swivels.
At the same TS I found this golf ball Jack O'Lantern. It is battery operated and lights up. There was no second thought about buying it!! LOL
Same store, Witch's Shopping List:
The PURPLE glitter broom was 50% off at Michaels as was the purple glitter ribbon. I was intending to paint a small sign saying "the Witch is in" but at the TS, I found the wooden witch hat that said "The Witch Is" so I cut out some foam letters and added the purple glitter ribbon to the top for "IN" and glued it onto the hat. Then I wrapped the handle of the broom with the glitter ribbon, added purple glitter ribbon to the black bow that was origially on the broom and hung it on the broom handle.
The little gray chair was my mother's when she was little.
I had been intending to paint it, but decided it was perfect as is for my most recent brainstorm!!
I painted the sit for a spell sign, tied it to the chair with black yarn, wired a DT crow to the top, added some dried moss, a TS owl, TS cauldron votive, made the SPELLS cover for a little book, and found the little witch figure at the TS today. Then I added orange berries from my Hawthorn tree and some silk flowers and leaves, and a few spider-rings and some spider web. Nothing is attached to the chair permanently, as I didn't want to ruin it.
A close up:
So, I scored some great finds at the TS and made a couple of decorations to boot.
