Halloween Crafting. . .

Hello my friends,
the month of September was a time of fun Halloween crafting.
 
I've mentioned before that I am in two different craft groups.
 
Craft group #2 met first and Kimi was in charge.  She had us thinking, "inside of the box".  :)
 
Creating fun scenes inside of a box that is.


cigar boxes, card boxes, etc. were used and a whole lot of creativity!

 
(Kimi's)
 


 
(Margo's)

 
(Shirleys)  She created the pumpkin and cat heads out of sculpy clay.  You can see more of her fun creations at Zettas Aprons
 
 
 
 
(Trinas  Teatime wit Trina)  She is going to hang a string across and hang a photo of her granddaughter, Molly all dressed up for Halloween.
 
 
I had a cigar box, but it was awfully cute and I wasn't sure I wanted to use it.  So I opted to fill this collage box I bought 3 or so years ago.  Nice to have it done!

Craft group #l created a village of houses.



Cardboard houses from Hobby Lobby got all spookified.

 
Karen was in charge and to save time she had the houses all glittered for us.  Now that's a big job!  She also provided black twigs, picket fence pieces, and a few other embellishments.

 
Karen made hers ahead of time for our sample.  Isn't it so cute?


 
(mine)  I needed to pick up a couple of other things to give it a little more pizazz.

 
I loved the clock knob Karen had on hers so I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and got this.
 
 
 
I wanted something fun and unique to add to the chimney.  My friend, Joanne spied Mr. skelly at a thrift today and I love him!

Yesterday I pulled our one of my Halloween boxes and had fun building my little town of "Glitterville".


 
I'm hoping to find some time to dye some bottle brush trees to add around the base.  We'll see. (wink)

 
 Here's another easy craft I did a few years ago.  Using Modge Podge I covered one of my plastic pumpkins with book pages.

Honestly, I don't need anymore Halloween décor, but how could I resist making these fun crafts?

hugs,
Jann

I will be sharing with these fun parties:

Such creativity in your groups!!! I'm envious, as I don't have a crafty gene -- I can sew, but that is about all. Cute stuff all over your house this time of the year. Sally

How fun to have TWO craft groups! I love every single project -- tons of work in there and all of it very good indeed! Love this post!

cute ideas!

Very cute and quite unique, love the idea of making houses instead of the ceramic ones. We seem to have a glut of seasonal ceramic houses landing in our thrift stores here. So, made at home sounds like a great idea. I will have to try this with the grand in a year or two. Fun stuff....! Sandi

I think this must be a fun group. Love seeing all the things you creative girls did. Thanks for sharing. The boxes are adorable and so are the houses.

I bet that was a big job getting all those glittered but how fun. A craft night would just be tons of fun. These finished creations are amazing.
