EEEK…I didn’t mean to publish two Halloween ghost décor projects in a row, but that’s how the cookie crumbled this year. But this one is pretty different…AND it’s to be used outdoors in your yard! But anyway- here’s the story: I found a bin of ceiling fan blades that were SUPER cheap, and there was a pack of white blades on the top. Right off the bat, I saw the potential of creating little ghost ornaments (think the Pac-man variety) to hang out in the yard.Read more ›

Craft Junk Giveaway – October 2017

Craft Junk Giveaway – October 2017

It’s hard to believe, but here we are in the fourth quarter of the year…which means it’s time for me to partner with several of my fellow bloggers in our quarterly “Craft Junk Giveaway”! And let me tell you- I’ve decided to bend the rules a little bit…because a large USPS Flat Rate box wasn’t big enough for what I plan on giving away…Read more ›

Floating Ghost Décor with Brass Candlesticks

Floating Ghost Décor with Brass Candlesticks

After last Halloween when I created this fun candy holder, I was determined to create a smaller ghost décor project that kinda-sorta matched it. But I desperately wanted whatever ghost project I created to have the appearance of “floating”, if that makes sense. I finally figured out a peculiar, but very Sadie-esque, solution: brass candlesticks from the thrift store!Read more ›

Spooky Halloween Light Post Décor

Spooky Halloween Light Post Décor

Over the years, Mr. Seasongoods has become accustomed to scanning the curb for interesting “things” that could become blog projects for me- and just a few weeks ago, he came across a pair of these old, beat-up candle holder lanterns. Each one was reminiscent of an old style light post, and he was fairly convinced I could use them- so he loaded them up and drove them home.Read more ›

Halloween Magic Potion Bottles

Halloween Magic Potion Bottles

I’ve been on a “revisiting old thrift store finds” kick lately- first that old magazine holder from 2015, and now this old spice rack (ALSO from 2015). This little ditty has been taking up space and gathering dust as a hobby for nearly two years- and with Halloween around the corner, I finally decided that it was long overdue for a revamp!Read more ›

When Christmas Window Candles Go Halloween…

When Christmas Window Candles Go Halloween…

Last year, I brought you a super simple, last minute Halloween project that took no time at all to create- remember these creepers? Well, I’m doing it again this year with a new super simple project. And this time…we’re repurposing vintage Christmas window candles …with a Halloween twist.Read more ›

Monkey Pod Wood Pumpkin Trays: Simple Fall Décor

Monkey Pod Wood Pumpkin Trays: Simple Fall Décor

Funny, but true, story about this project- it all started out when I found this apple-shaped monkey pod wood tray at the thrift store. It was May…so Spring was on my mind…and I told myself I’d make a cute apple project in the Fall.Read more ›

Buffalo Check Tray Décor for Autumn

Buffalo Check Tray Décor for Autumn

This project, my friends, was driven entirely by my obsession with one of Funky Junk Interiors’ most recent stencils. She created PLAID stencils for her Old Sign Stencil Shop, and I have been positively mad for the Buffalo check version. For the longest time, I had no idea what I’d use it on…until I spied these quirky wooden cafeteria-style trays…Read more ›

Upcycled Alcohol Ink Glass Pumpkins

Upcycled Alcohol Ink Glass Pumpkins

Every now and then, I choose to work on a project based on a crafting technique, as opposed to a really unique repurposing idea. And this, my friends, is one of those projects! Back in the Spring, I spotted this glass pumpkin at the thrift…autumn was months away, but I had a flickering idea. I’d been looking for a way to try out alcohol ink paints for a long time…and wouldn’t this piece be a great opportunity to play around with them? Read more ›

Horse Brass Tablecloth Weights

Horse Brass Tablecloth Weights

I don’t exactly know why, but when I think of anything horse-related, I imagine it in an autumn setting. I can’t really explain why this is, and maybe it makes no sense…but when I think of horses, I think of plaid blankets, leather accessories, and crisp Fall air. I know, it’s silly- but I can’t disconnect the two!

So, when I was at a thrift store the other day, rifling through one of their “Rummage Boxes”, I spotted a vintage horse brass…and then I saw a whole collection of them. I held them in my palm for a moment, running my hands over the smooth glowing medal, transferring their weight from hand to hand, and an idea came to mind. And in automatic Sadie fashion, I knew it was meant to be an autumn project.Read more ›
