DIY Halloween Pencil Toppers

Hello everyone! I’m very excited to share today’s project with you! Since Waffle Flower does not have any Halloween designs this year, I haven’t been able to make anything for Halloween except some cards until… yesterday! I was so happy to receive the invitation from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores to participate in their new campaign: #DIY4Halloween – a perfect opportunity to DIY for, isn’t it?! I went to my local Jo-Ann with the coupons on my phone (did you get the mobile apps? so convenient!). I spent a couple of hours browsing the fun collections, dreaming of the possibilities and brought home the supplies for my Halloween Pencil Toppers! Supplies I will try to link to joann.com where you can order some of the supplies online. But since it is close to Halloween, you probably need to go to the store to get your supplies. – Styrofoam Balls (There are many sizes, I picked the Floracraft 2-1/2″ Styrofoam Balls – 6PK/White.)

Five Halloween Cards for Friday

Hello everyone! It’s Friday again! I had a great vacation earlier this month but it sure feels good to be back in the craft room! I missed every inch of it! For this Five for Friday, we have five halloween cards using non-halloween themed products for your inspiration!

[Video Tutorial] DIY Pom-Pom Spider for Halloween Decoration + a Coupon

Hello everyone! Today’s project was inspired by a wooden stick that I found in front of our home. I’ve wanted to try spray paints for a while and I knew immediately that I could use the stick with pom-pom spiders for the Jo-Ann #spookyspaces campaign for Halloween! I remembered seeing a “pompom garland” tip sheet at the “Creativity Made Simple” shelf at my local Jo-Ann store and knew that I could find the pom-pom makers there. My objective was to create a neat Halloween decoration for under $25.  So with my coupons I began. For a moment, I was distracted by the black feather wreath, face paints and all the cute decorations for Halloween, but I pretty much stuck to the plan and made all of the items shown below (including the glass and beads) for $24.74! Halloween Mantel Decoration I couldn’t resist the black burlap. It was screaming to be […]

Fun Ways to Use Letter Stamps – Reverse Confetti Oct.8 Blog Hop

Hello everyone! I’m sharing some fun ways to use letter/number stamps with a couple of cool sets from Reverse Confetti and hopping along with their talented design team and friends today! The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have arrived from Amber Hight’s Blog. Don’t forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to their store! First one up, a Halloween card using the Lighthearted Letters stamp set. I punched a bunch pennants from white cardstock and stamped the letters to spell “Happy Halloween”. Fun, right? I drew a little stem for each pumpkin for some added detail. Second card, using Count Your Rainbows stamp set. I used the dashed line in the set as strings to hang the circled numbers on. I had a lot of fun making these cards for Reverse Confetti! You will sure be inspired by the […]
