Fan Blade Outdoor Ghost Ornaments

Fan Blade Outdoor Ghost Ornaments

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 ›

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 ›

Halloween Motley Crew: “Haunted” Figurines

Halloween Motley Crew: “Haunted” Figurines

Here we go again with my latest contribution to The Good Life blog, the DIY/Lifestyle blog of Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina. For October’s post, I went with a Halloween project (of course!) and decided to create something so ridiculously simple that anyone- and I mean ANYONE- can do it. Even if you don’t have a crafty bone in your body.Read more ›

From Basket to Candy Bowl – A Halloween Makeover!

From Basket to Candy Bowl – A Halloween Makeover!

October is almost over- how is that possible? But before it slips away, I wanted to bring to you my latest upcycled project for The Good Life Blog! If you’ll recall, I was asked to be a part of this fun group of thrifty bloggers, brought together by Goodwill Industries of the Upstate/Midlands South Carolina. So far for Goodwill, I’ve blogged about DIY Wall Art and Creating a Thrifty Gift, and this month I went with a Halloween theme. And this is a project that is SO SIMPLE that literally anyone can do it, I promise. It uses just three things- a basket, orange paint, and some black felt- that’s it!Read more ›

Country Cookie Jar to Spooky Haunted House

Country Cookie Jar to Spooky Haunted House

Hopefully you aren’t sick of Halloween projects yet! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…upcycling and Halloween are a match made in crafting heaven, which is why I keep bringing you more and more projects on the blog!

And this one is no exception. It started out with a trip to Goodwill (how typical of me) and a casual stroll through housewares. I wasn’t hunting for anything in particular, and when I came across this chipped, cracked country cottage cookie jar, I was intrigued (because it was an unusual item) but not inspired.Read more ›

Jack-o-Lamp: Salvaged Light Fixture “Pumpkin”

Jack-o-Lamp: Salvaged Light Fixture “Pumpkin”

I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll mention it again- one of my favorite places to go for both crafting inspiration and supplies is Habitat ReStore. And for some reason this year, I can’t stop making Halloween décor using salvaged light fixtures.

First, I made Light Cover Ghosts.

And now? A light fixture Jack-o-Lamp!Read more ›
