Friday Favorites - Halloween

I’m going to try something new.  I am constantly coming across things that make me say “Wow!” and I’d like to share them with you.  We’re going to shoot for Fridays because nothing else sounds right with “Favorites.”  There might be a running theme in my list, or it might be a collection of randomness.  I’m looking forward to it, and I hope you are too! If your project is featured, please feel free to grab a button to your right.  If you’d like to be considered for a future Friday Favorites, just send a link to craftystaci@gmail.com.  I’d love to hear from you.

Since Halloween is this weekend, I’m going to start there.  Fasten your seatbelt!

What I really like about this pumpkin ornament by Christine & Co. is the fact that it looks like a little quilt, but it’s actually paper.  And Mod Podge, which makes everything more interesting.

Next up is Sweetest Kitchen’s Dulce De Leche Cupcakes.  There is never anything wrong with a recipe that includes sweetened condensed milk.  Ever.

Subway art is everywhere right now, but it really seems to fit for Halloween.  I think Green Eyed Girl Crafts did a great job with this one.  I’ve gotta get one of those vinyl cutting machines.

Just Drops in the Bucket’s display of poison bottles manages to be elegant and a little freaky all at the same time.  Perfect.

I don’t know if I even need to say anything about Esmerelda, the Ribbon Witch from Life on the Ridge Side.  I’ll let the photo speak for itself.

I know this is weird, but we are talking about Halloween.  And seriously, how can I pass up a knitted skeleton?  Sitting on top of a stack of sweetened condensed milk cans?  Knitted by a guy?  Did I hook you yet?  Visit The Art of Ben Cuevas for more info and photos.  The close-ups show how amazing the detail is.

I love a simple, low-material outlay project.  These spiders from Visions of Sugar Plums would be so fun to make with little kids.  And they’re big enough to actually see them among other decorations.

Here’s a great idea from Sugar Bee to save for AFTER Halloween.  You know, when you’ve got all those candy wrappers to hide, uh, I mean dispose of.

So, maybe you’ve got some grown-ups coming over for dinner for Halloween?  I hear it happens.  These tube pumpkins from Expect Moore would make fabulous little napkin rings!

I just love this shirt and hat by Therapeutic Crafting.  ‘Nuff said.
