Fun and Easy Halloween Pillows!

Hi again, just wanted share a pic of some Halloween pillows that my daughter and I had fun doing!  Last year we had found some spooky cute placemats on clearance.  We thought it would be fun to turn them into pillows.  We notice here that there aren't too many selections of Halloween pillows and if you do find them, they aren't exactly cheap.  Also, I can't sew to save my life!  When we got home it was easier than we thought.  Since the placemat has a front and back fabric, all I had to do was use a seam ripper on a small area and my daughter started stuffing and then we just closed it back up!  I thought it was a pretty cool and cheap idea until I got online, I noticed that hundreds of sites have already done it.  Oh well!  I thought maybe a few of you who might have not seen them yet might find this useful and fun!! :)


Hope you have a Spooky Halloween!!!

My Latest Creepy Creation!



 I was finally able to finish another spooky clock in time for Halloween. It is available for purchase now on Ebay! Click on any photo below to be taken to the auction!





Photobucket

It is a wooden mantle clock that measures 7.5 inches x 15 inches. Painted in orange, black, green, white and gold then antiqued for an aged look. The front and sides are hand painted with skeletons in witch hats, pumpkins, bats and spiders. I was trying to resemble something like Victorian wallpaper.


Photobucket

A polymer clay bat has been added to the metal handle on top.  I also added four wood balls for feet that has been painted to look like pumpkins.

Photobucket

The back opens up to replace the AA battery and to set the time for the clock.  There is enough room back there to hide things!  Key is not included, but is currently available over at the Halloween Queens Castle Bootique.

Thank you so much for looking!!

Halloween Queens October BOOtique Updates and BIG Giveaway!

Hi all!!  Hope you are all having fun getting ready for Halloween!  If you are looking for some fun one of kind art pieces to add to your decorating this year than head on over to the Halloween Queens' Bootique.  Not only does each artist have their own page listed with goodies, but this month there is an ornament page and also a themed page.  This month's theme is "Put On Your Best Witch's Hat".  Here are the pieces that I added to the Boo this month! 

The first one is for the theme page.  I know it is not a witch's hat but I thought it would be perfect to celebrate the Halloween Queens!  And okay, I will also admit it isn't even a real hat, it's a container, but how fun is it anyway!! 


I took a found resin trinket box that had a cool shape of a crown and added a hand sculpted cat out of paper clay to the lid.  I also added small Jack O'Lanerns and bats around the container part of the crown.  Then I painted and antiqued it for an aged look.  Measures a little over 7 inches high.

Photobucket


For the Halloween Ornament Page I have available this one of a kind Spooky Halloween Key Ornament!  Every haunted house needs a skeleton key!  This was made from a found resin key that I added a paper clay skull, bat and Jack O'Lantern.  Then painted and antiqued for an aged look.  Measures 6.5 inches long.

Photobucket


For my own Creepy Creations Page on the Boo, I listed this cute little guy!  "Rombie" the Zombie and his faithful pet "Brainz"!

Photobucket


Rombie is made from polymer clay and painted.  He has been dressed in some stylish shredded cloths.  Stands 4 inches tall.  His pet Brainz is also made from polymer clay and painted. 

Photobucket


A creepy coffin box is also included to safely store Rombie and Brainz. 

Photobucket

I had also made a mummy doll along with the zombie but my daughter has seem to have claimed her and took off with her saying something about looking cute in a pink dress. 

Photobucket


I would also like to mention, if you have not already been over there, the really BIG giveaway that is going on over at the Halloween Queens' Blog.  The 2nd Annual  Halloween Queens HALLOWEEN Giveaway!!!  Going on NOW until October 13th!!  The winner will win 19 wonderful handmade goodies from different Halloween Artists!!!  All you have to do is head on over to the Halloween Queens' Blog and leave a comment as to why you love Halloween!

After Pic of My Newest Halloween Clock...

Finally!  So much for a week later, huh.  I decided to go ahead and put the clock in the Halloween Queens BOOtique September update.  So, I waited on the post a little longer than what I had mentioned previously. 


Well, here it is!

 

Photobucket

I decided to go with the usual orange, black, white and green colors.  My daughter actually had the idea of the striped columns which I thought was a brilliant idea!  Not only are there Jack O'Lanterns on top of this clock but I also added a crow this time.  They all have been hand sculpted in paper clay.  The vines on the sides are also of paper clay with polymer clay leaves.

Thank you so much for looking!  Now off I go to work on the next project! 

Hope you all have a great Labor Day Weekend!!

Miniature Castle Room Box WIP

Here is the room box that I mentioned before that I have slowly been working on.  I still have to make a door and a stained glass window for it.  I just used foam board, popsicle sticks and paint. Oh, and a little paper clay inside the window and door so it didn't have that cut foam look like you see on the outer edges.  I have not attached the walls or floor together yet.  It's just held together right now with tape.  I was going to go with the Hogwarts Gryffindor common room but just decided to make a basic castle room.  I thought it would be great to use when I take pictures of future miniature pieces that I do!


Photobucket

The pictures are kind of small looking.  I will take some close up shots when I get the door and window completed.  I'm not for sure if you click on them if they will become larger or not.

Photobucket

Here are some dolls that I have made hanging out in the room enjoying the fun goodies that I got from some very talented miniature artists.  The zombie duet with the piano is available now at my Etsy shop.


Photobucket


This is a wardrobe cabinet that I purchased from Kate with Whittaker's Miniatures.  I eventually plan to revamp it into something spooky some day!  I just loved all the little drawers inside.  She also made the very cool skull and books on the floor beside it.  You can also see my little mandrake root that I attempted to make last year.  He decided to come out of his pot and give a pose for the camera!


Photobucket

Here the gang is catching up on all the news from Harry Potter.  These were made by Lorraine with DFly Creations that I had posted about before.  Also I was lucky enough to win one of her mini wands a while back!  As you can see Franky is holding it probably wanting to change himself out of the Santa suit!  The lovely zombie lady is modeling the very cool Sorting Hat that I purchased from Kat the Hat Lady, who just makes the most wonderful mini hats!  The zombie looks a little shocked at what the hat might be telling her.

Well, I guess this post is to be continued for now until I can get the door and window finished.  Hopefully by then I will have some more creepy miniature pieces to display in it.  I will be back in a few days with my Halloween Queens Castle BOOtique updates for August.

March BOO Update!

Well the BOO has just been updated for March and I must say that it rocks!!  There is so much Creepy Goodness!!

You can finally see my piece that is available for purchase at the BOO.  Did you guess it was a man eating plant?  This one I made smaller and turned into an ornament.  This lil guy is 6 1/4 inches tall (9 inches including hanger).  I tried to put a "Do Not Feed" sign on him, but as you can see he didn't like that very much!! 




Photobucket

Would make a fun addition to your Halloween tree!!  To see more info on him click here!!

The BOOtique Update for February!

I'm back and wanted to let you know that the Halloween Queens' Castle Bootique was just updated yesterday with some fantastic new art!  If you haven't already, click on over and check it out!  Here is the piece that I added!


It is a Rockin' Heart Pincushion Box!  I thought I would try something a little different this month since Valentine's is coming up.  I had found this skull and rose pattern material a while back and thought it would be perfect for this piece.  The box, of course, is made out of wood and already had some ugly fabric in it that looked like it was from an old couch.  I replaced it with the new fabric and hand painted the heart box to match!  I embellished three pins with beads and metal cross charms to go with it.

Photobucket

I continued the vines on the inside of the box which is the perfect size to store more pins, threads or other little sewing needs!
