Halloween Party 101. Well not really but let me just tell you I have a thing for crows. I remember when I used to freak out by the thought of a black crow. Now, I smile really big and give them names. I think many people associate a black crow with death and bad luck but shoots, I will go with the positive aspects of them. Here are a few incase you are “dying” to know!

  • Life magic; mystery of creation
  • Destiny, personal transformation, alchemy
  • Intelligence
  • Higher perspective
  • Being fearless, audacious

We all cool now? Remember these book/magazine holders I made? Well today I will show you how to spruce up those lovely white pillar candles that you get from Walgreens for 3 bucks. You know which ones I am talking about right?

The religious ones. But I get the plain white ones. I will gladly assume they are blank so I can create my own spiritual fairy on it and pray to “whoever”.  Today we are praying to the black crows, and not the band. Even thought I rocked out to them 10 years ago. I wonder if the “Black Crows” (the band) is throwing a Halloween party.

YOU WILL NEED: PILLAR CANDLE | ADHESIVE DOTS | SILK RIBBON | SCISSORS | HALLOWEEN STICKERS
halloween candles diy

Don’t get me wrong. I love glue. BUT I love adhesive jewels any day. Granted they will not be as durable without glue but for projects like this they rock my world. I got this sheet from Michaels and they were one whole dollar.
adhesive stickers jewels crafts

Step ONE: Apply the sticky jewels to the outside of your candle. BAM NO GLUE! diy candles

Step TWO: Cut a piece of silk ribbon. Look, if you are a die hard fan of ribbon then you know this is the LAND ROVER of silk land. Well, at least I think so. This stuff is 30 something a roll but let me tell you it’s worth it! It’s as soft as a…..bunny’s tail.  silk ribbon crafts

Step THREE: Tie three pieces of ribbon around your pillar candle (above the jewels). easy crafts for your home

Step FOUR: Admire these unique stickers from jolee’s boutique. Are you familiar with this line? I know I am and you will love them too! halloween stickers crafts

Step FIVE: Grab your favorite sticker and place it directly on top of the ribbon. VOILA YO.  halloween crow black crow crafts

Today it’s all about Halloween Party Ideas, YO! Let me tell you I am full of ideas thank to my BFF Martha! It’s kinda crazy because I started celebrating Halloween (here on the blog) in September and I should start tackling Christmas but I can’t seem to divorce Halloween yet.

I enjoy all of the quirky, spooky and mysterious qualities of Halloween. Fact is, I have been thinking of what “theme” I will use this year for my Christmas tree. I ran across this and it has me completely confused. So can I have a Halloween tree, or is that against Santa’s rules? Help me out y’all! Remember this black and white party I threw last year?  I would like to go back to that ASAP! It was such a fun party that I had by myself, haha!

So here are a few snippets of how you can decorate any space for a quick and fun spooky party!

Halloween Party Ideas Are you scared yet? I know I am! TeeHee…

I mean, I almost can’t deal with these 3 dimensional skulls. I love them so much I think if I add a santa hat to them they might just stick around a bit longer.

Santa is pretty old right?

halloween party table ideas Not into Halloween too much, that’s ok! These cute Chalkboard Treat Bags fit right in with a little splash of Fall decor as well. Look closer and you can see this chic spider web table runner.

A MUST.

halloween diy You can make these skull flags for any party in 10 minutes, literally. Check out how I made them at the bottom of this post. After all you can never go wrong with paper flags especially since Martha made it super easy for everyone with her triangle paper pack.

Did I mention they already have holes punched in them! This is a “shake your head moment”….

Just add clear glass, a vintage tea set and voila! If you don’t have a tea set you can add tons of clear glass and fill them with spooky little spiders and that will do the job.

Did you notice the bats flying like crazy on the mirror!

paper flag banner diy To make the flags you will need this pack of pre cut triangles from Michaels. Hold on y’all….They have different prints on both sides! Wahooo!! Since the holes are already at the top all you have to do is pass string or twine through them then hang up! I used black silk ribbon to mine.

If you don’t own silk ribbon then you are missing out! It’s heaven. Seriously. Go get some.

In this month’s Michaels Makers post I will be showing you how to make homemade halloween costume for dogs. This costume was super fun to make. Not to mention my dog was in the best mood during the entire process, as you can see on her cute little face. When I Michaels told us we had to create a Halloween costume my mind went nuts! I started thinking of so many different things but the one thing that made complete sense was elsa and my dog. So the two got together and they are now living happily ever after. This costume is really easy and I know you can do it! Let’s get started! homemade halloween costume for dogs

Check out Michaels’ Halloween Market lookbook or Halloween Pinterest board for some project favorites, including costumes, personalized pumpkins, porch décor and more. 

YOU WILL NEED… Headband | Yarn | Glue Gun | Fabric Fusion | Blue & White Felt | Tulle in Shades of Blue

MICHAELSMAKERS

STEP ONE… Take your tulle and cut strips the same size. This will vary depending on how big or small your dog it.
STEP TWO …Pass the tulle around the headband and tie a not. Make sure to make the ends even on top before tying the knot.  1 STEP THREE…To make the hair you will wrap your yarn around the back of a chair like below. Put hot glue on a piece of felt then wrap it around the yarn in the middle. This will secure your yarn so it stays in place. When you are done take the yarn off of the chair and cut the “loop” to create two long pieces of hair on each side! It’s that easy.  YARN WIG TUTORIAL STEP FOUR …Time to make the neck tie. I figured I would man up the elsa costume a little.  Cut your felt in small strips.
STEP FIVE…Cut small pieces of fabric fusion and place them on the ends of the felt. Add a second strip of felt directly on top of the fabric fusion to create one long strip of felt.
STEP SIX…To connect the neck piece I added two small pieces of white felt on each end to connect under the body of the dog.

For the hair of elsa, I realize she has a braid but Ceaux Ceaux (co-co) wanted long luscious locks! P.S. To secure the hair I took two pieces from each side and tied it under her chin. Voila! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Make sure to check out the other costumes created by the other Michaels bloggers.

Today it’s all about Glow in the Dark Pumpkins. I have always loved Halloween so I figured I would get a little creative with my pumpkin decor. I don’t know about you but I am over carving pumpkins, which is why I resort to artificial ones. For one, they last a heck of a lot longer (heller, saving money 101) and they are simply gorgeous the second you purchase them. Have you seen my pumpkin roundup, if not you have to check it out. It’s 20 fabulous ways to decorate your pumpkins!

I get all of my pumpkins from Michaels and right now they are 50% off! I know, I think I will go back again today and get more. This tutorial is good for everyone to do. It’s the kind of project that just makes you feel good! Plus creating is a good way to release anger and and it relaxes you in the process! For the full tutorial click on the link below!

DIY Glittered Acorns are on the menu today. I found this little bag of acorns and miniature pinecones at Michaels and I had to pick up a few of them. Call it an addiction but anything “little” has to come home with me!

Now they were simply perfect with it’s natural colors in the bag but I wanted to add a little flare to them, so I added glitter! You can never go wrong with glitter.

If you love to decorate for Fall this is the perfect accent to your decor. You can sprinkle them around your pumpkins, put them in bowls or eat them. Either way they will work out fine for you! Let’s get started. DSC_0426 You will need: Bag of Pinecones and Acorns | Glitter | Decoupage  Brush
You can purchase all of the items used in this post by clicking on the links above. These are affiliate links so thanks for helping me purchase more acorns and glitter, yo!  DSC_0406 Step One: Lay out your goodies and stare at them for a minute. Worship them because they are simply that adorable.
DSC_0407 Step Two: Grab the glitter of your choice and shake them like a salt shaker. Preferably on top of your head. I am using Martha Stewart glitter in Florentine Gold & Wintermint.  DSC_0410 Step Three: Get your bottle of decoupage and roll it on a flat surface to wake it up. We need to make sure everything is mixed together well inside of the container.  DSC_0411 Step Four: Apply a small amount of decoupage on your brush and add it to your acorns and pinecones. While wet sprinkle a little glitter over the glue. Hint: I like to place a sheet of paper under my items to catch the glitter, then I can pour it back into the bottle.

Just like saving whales, we need to save the glitter.  DSC_0416 DSC_0420
DSC_0427 DSC_0428 I love the way they came out. Did I mention this is the perfect craft to have your kids do? Seriously it takes about 10 minutes to do them and it dries really fast. I think I will make rainbow ones next. What cha think! See ya in the next post Jaderbugs!

Halloween is my favorite holiday as you all may know. So I teamed up with Fiskars to create a fun Halloween project just for YOU!

Sometimes I want to be a kid again. I tried it last year but I think everyone knew I was not a kid. Dammit. I lost a little weight in the last few weeks so maybe I will have a good chance this year. Last year I dressed as Frida Kahlo and boy did I look just like her. The guy at the grocery store thought I was a “geisha girl”…

Epic fail. How could anyone not realize who I was!? Moving on.

Sometimes when everyone is buying Halloween costumes they might find it difficult to find a matching treat bag to sling on their arm. I am making things super easy for you this year by showing you how to create your very own using Duck Tape! When you get to the Duck Tape isle in whatever store you are in you will realize just how many options you have to choose from. It’s like being in a sticky candy store. If you love bags check out these glittered lunch bags.

So head on over to the Fiskars website ( See below the picture) and get the full tutorial. You won’t believe what I used to make these bags with, besides Duck Tape. Did I mention the bags are filled with glow in the dark stickers. Yes indeed!

Happy Halloween Jaderbugs! I was going to post a fun tutorial today, but instead I am taking you to Madame Tussauds in New York . Me and my dad went and had the best time ever. It was amazing seeing these life size people. I felt today was a fun day to share this with you since everyone will be dressing up and becoming who they really want to be!

Madame Tussauds New York

Picture 1 of 11

The view is amazing!

If you are ever in New York you must make it to Madame Tussauds. It’s a great experience. The figures are so realistic you will have to touch them to make sure they are not real. Plus, it’s affordable and fun!

I hope everyone has a safe and memorable Halloween! See you in the next post.  ending1

  Pumpkin Cake Toppers

Today I will be sharing an easy project that will dress up any cake or cupcake!

I had so much fun making these pumpkin cake toppers.This is a great craft for kids also!

Craft Brushes | Green Glitter | Orange Craft Paint | Brown Craft Paint | Toothpicks | Air Dry Clay 

You can click on any of the above links to purchase items I used in this tutorial.

Pumpkin Cake Topper Supplies

air dry clay cake toppers

The first thing you will do is grab a little ball of air dry clay. Roll it around in your hands until you make a round ball.  how to make clay pumpkins Stick a toothpick through it letting a little piece stick out of the top. Once you do this get another toothpick and draw your lines in the pumpkin.

how to paint clay

Let it dry over night then paint a coat of orange paint all over it. While your orange paint is still wet paint a little brown paint in the cracks. This will add an antique look to it.

clay pumpkin cake toppers You can even coat a little bit of brown paint over some of the orange if you want.

VOILA!  How stinking cute are these! You could be a feisty fierce diva and put 10 pumpkins on a piece of cake or you could be simple and put one.

See you in the next post!  ending1

cake toppers
It’s all about DIY today and boy have I got some fun cake toppers for you.

Look, I like balls. I like them so much that I made my own version of “Cake Ball’s.” I know you are probably shaking your head right about now. If you are not I will for you. 

The other night I was sitting in my studio thinking of cute things to add to the top of a cake. The first things that came to my mind was BALLS.

Let’s get started.

YOUWILLNEED Wooden Sticks | Small Christmas Ornaments | Brushes | Paint | Glue Gun | Bakers Twine 

how to paint ornaments supplies

The first thing you will do is paint the paint sticks white. I am using a normal crafting brush for this step.

Next you will get this snazzy little Martha Stewart paint brush. It’s like two brushes in one!

black and white sticks

I grabbed these “balls” last year at Tar-Jay and they are perfect. P.S. Make sure you take the tip off of the ornament. Paint that sucker all black. I had to put about 3 coats on them before I was happy.

how to paint ornaments

This is how they will turn out. I am actually really shocked at how shiny they became after they were completely dry.

paint christmas ornaments

When they are done I put a little dab of hot glue on the tip of wooden stick and stuck it inside the ornament. Just hold it for a second till it’s dry.

Put a little hot glue around the tip of ornament then wrap twine around it.

VOILA!

balloon toppers I am so happy with the way they turned out! I know that I did them black but you could do them pink, purple or just leave them the color of the ornament.

Another idea is to do different size ornaments.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Make sure to have fun with your balls… ending
