Button-Embelished Bobby Pins

A friend of mine, who is actually getting married this weekend (whoo hoo!) came over the other night to make hair pins for her brides-maids. She originally asked to borrow my glue gun to make them, and sadly enough I got panicky with separation anxiety from my glue gun! So sad. She had the super cute idea to glue buttons on bobby pins and they turned out pretty awesome, at least I think so. I need to go get some bigger bobby pins to make my self some.

Thrifty Seasonal Decor: Part 2, Fall

The other day browsing around on my favorites list, I saw this awesome idea at Oops, I Craft My Pants, and immediately swiped the idea! I too made the trip to Home Depot and smuggled out a handful of paint chips in fall colors. The best part about this project is that it was FREE! Well almost, I did have to get a new Sharpie for the tree trunk, but other than that...paint chips-Free, and MDF-Free (sitting in my garage from a headboard).

I drew out the tree trunk and then got to gluing. You'll probably notice I yanked off one of the falling leaves, seemed like a little much so it had to go. It's one of my favorite fall projects yet.

Thrifty Seasonal Decor: Part 1, Halloween

I finally dragged out all of my Halloween and fall decor and got to work. I soon realized that all of the decorations that seemed to almost overpower our little apartment last year now seem sparse in our house. To add some quick Halloween flair I printed out some vintage Halloween prints and placed them in frames around the family room. Here are just a couple.

Halloween Decor

My husband and I took a trip to Texas to visit my family. While I was there my sister was putting out just SOME of her Halloween decorations. She goes all out for the holiday. Here is a glimpse of her mantle, kitchen table, and dining room table. Closer to Halloween you will find a graveyard in the front yard and creepy silhouettes of cats, ghosts, mice, spiders, and even the outlines of Gothic window treatments in her windows. My next Halloween craft will be the silhouettes to place in our front window. It's about time for me to get into the spooky spirit!
