Halloween is coming, Halloween is coming!

I love Halloween. I mean really love it. I love the decorations, the costumes, the parties, the trick or treating and mainly it just kicks off the holiday season! Oh, did I mention people just give out free candy! YUM!!!! Since I have a son, I decided I was going to decorate this year. Yeah he is only 10 months and won’t remember, but I needed an excuse!

So Pinterest here I come! My board “He did the monster mash” has so many fun projects for me to do. I’ve been working on them here and there and haven’t finished any until today! I am so excited to share this with everyone. I have this little pin that I love  with a glass jar of candy corn, a little framed 3D pumpkin and an owl. Some of my favorites. This is one of those pins I don’t check the link before I pin it, I just pin and hope it takes me to a wonderful site with easy directions. Well, it doesn’t, but it is one better. It takes me over to “I Heart Nap Time, inspiring naptime creativity“. Jackpot! This particular post is called “55+ Amazing Halloween Crafts“. UMMMMM OK, did I say JACKPOT!!!! I have just found a little bit of craft heaven! From this one post she has I have found 5 of this year’s Halloween crafts I am going to tackle, yes, I said 5!

GO BIG OR GO HOME is my motto when it comes to decorating! So I start my Halloween extravaganza with my 3D pumpkin frame. But like I said “Go Big or Go Home!” So no I don’t buy one frame, I buy one frame that consists of 9 smaller frames together and after following the directions from “Eighten25” I have a masterpiece. Ok, it’s no Monet, but a masterpiece non the less.

This craft is so easy AND I have decided that I can change out the inserts for every Holiday and cha-ching save some money down the road!

Here is my finished pumpkin art, I have gone with a spider theme this year so I added a few of those in there.

Cost:

Paper: I opted to use some I already had in my supply so $0.

Frame: This was my big ticket item for this project $30. (Purchased at Hobby Lobby during a 50% of sale)

Spiders: Left over from another craft I am working on so $0.

Pumpkins: Hobby Lobby 40% off so they were $7.79.

Glue: In my stash = $0.

Total: $37.79

Ok, yes this is a lot for a Halloween decoration. But like I stated before, I can change out the inserts for other Holidays and when we aren’t celebrating a particular Holiday, I can put some photos in there. BAM! Technically the Halloween expense for this was $7.79. Do you like my logic? I do!

This little pin says; “I love me some 3D art” Why don’t you get yourself up and make one for a little corner of your home. You can use one frame, for you that might be going BIG! 🙂

Happy Halloween…stay tuned for the other creepy, or not so creepy, Halloween projects brewing around here!
