I Love a Vintage Halloween!
For me, Halloween is not about the day...it's about the season. I have always been an Autumn person. I look forward to the brisk mornings, the falling leaves and the flavor of Pumpkin Spice Everything! I have such fond memories of Halloween from when I was a child...and I have spent my adult life trying to recreate it somehow. That's why I love the look of vintage Halloween decorations and have a bit of a collection of blow mold lanterns and die cuts of cats and haunted houses. My neighbors know I love to decorate my front porch as well as the inside of my house...I can't help myself. I have a need to create. If you, too, are feeling a need to create...but money doesn't grow on Halloween trees...I have assembled a few fun holiday projects that I found on Pinterest and a few blogs. Nothing scary...I don't like gory "chainsaw massacres" on my front yard. I prefer black cats and Jack o' Lanterns.
Dollar Store Crafts
My Favorite...Haunted Village.
Dollar store houses are sprayed with matte black.
I made a Christmas village by painting the houses cream and adding glitter.
Dollar store burner covers, a pail and a yard stick or dowel.
"BOO" Front Door Décor
The one shown is embroidery hoops, but burner covers would work instead.
Think "JOY" for Christmas!
Wrap a Dollar Store Pumpkin in Burlap...Classy!
More Dollar Store Pumpkins.
Paint or decoupage for a designer look.
I especially love this! Trick or Treat Flower Pots!
Wouldn't a Black Cat head be cute as well?
Dollar Store Frames or DI.
So much fun printable art can be found on Pinterest
Blog Friend Kim transformed a Target owl from the $3 bins.
The hat is in the Halloween section...also $3.
Kim turned a Target light-up house into a Trick or Treat house!

Pot Lid Pumpkins.
I spray painted lids from the DI and added buttons and such for details.
DI had a lot of pot lids yesterday. I get the ones with the black knobs for noses.
My blog Zettas Aprons
Burlap Halloween Art.

That's all for now...
Happy Halloween Crafting!
