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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.
