cauldrons for the first time using an upside down Santa head cookie cutter. I was looking through my cookie cutters to come up with something new to me: a flower for the spider webs and a carrot for the One-Eyed-Long-Horned-Flying-Purple-People-Eaters.

mantel last year. The haunted house silhouette makes such a statement in the room, but this year I wanted to incorporate our collection of masks into the mantel. Before I knew it, the haunted house was relocated and I had a completely different look for the mantel this year...without spending a dime.

If this was a post on how to clean dingy old sheets, this cute little mummy wreath would not have been made for Halloween this year. Instead of using bleach to whiten, this sheet set was shredded to make a series of mummies peeking through to watch approaching visitors. What to find out how to make this wreath in about 5 minutes?

The inspiration for the costume came from this mask she got for her birthday...
...and this pin:
She already had: Purple Long-sleeve Turtleneck...
...and Blue Skinny Jeans.
The felt peacock feathers are pretty self explanatory.
Supplies: 3 pieces of brown felt. Cut in thirds and then in half. Trim to tear drop shape.
2 pieces of green felt. Cut in quarters and then in thirds. Trim to oval shape.
Stack green on top of brown.
1 piece of blue felt. Cut in fifths & then quarters. Cut heart shape. Stack on top of green.
I ended up making a variety of color combinations for the felt feathers. Here is a purple/blue/lavender feather. Stitch down the length of the feather with yellow thread.
Reverse and stitch back to the starting point.
Turn feather and stitch 4-6 feather veins.
The floor length tulle skirt is sewn to an elastic waistband and then tacked in the front so the front of the skirt is shorter than the back.
It was getting a bit chilly while we were outside pinning the feathers. The tulle is glittery, so I didn't want glitter all over the house
What we already had: Jeans $15, Turtleneck $7, Mask $12, Scarf $5
