Rusty, Junky Plastic Pumpkins

Rusty, Junky Plastic Pumpkins

This post is sponsored by Rust-oleum, who provided a Rust Finish Metal Effects Kit by Modern Masters at no charge to me. All opinions are my own.

I have to admit- on certain junk or antique pieces, I like the look of rust more than actually dealing with rust- the chipping, the flaking, etc. So, when I had a chance to try out the “Rust Finish Metal Effects” kit by Modern Masters, I jumped at the chance! Right off the bat, I knew I wanted to try it on those plastic pumpkins that are ALWAYS at thrift stores this time of year.Read more ›

Serger Thread Cone Candy Corn Décor

Serger Thread Cone Candy Corn Décor

In my neck of the woods (The Carolinas), relics of old industrial textile mills are common at vintage stores and thrift shops. So, it’s no surprise that I run across old serger thread cones pretty frequently.

But a picture frame that could BECOME haunted house décor…

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 ›

DIY Floating Ghosts using Upcycled Brass Candlesticks

DIY Floating Ghosts using Upcycled 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 project I created to to end up looking like floating ghosts, if that makes any 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 ›
