I had a few friends over the other day and I thought it might be fun to do a quick, easy and inexpensive Halloween craft. I searched the net and found this fun favor box idea here.Not wanting to dig through the garbage for toilet paper rolls nor have the mess of paint, I came up with my own version.
I used spray adhesive to adhere cardstock onto felt. Then I cut each piece in half and used hot glue to make a roll.We gently folded each end in half and then pushed each side into the center to close each end. The folds make a fun shape and can open to stuff treats inside.Next we used rhinestones, felt, glitter foam sheets and pipe cleaners to make our creations.The process was a little messy.
Online decorating magazines seem to be a growing sector, starting with the success of Lonny.
There are a couple of new ones that you might want to check out. The first one is Adore Home, which is an Australian online magazine. The content is a bit thin for the first issue, but it looks like it has potential.
The second one is Rue Magazine. This one is huge (over 200 pages). The first issue has a large section devoted to design blogs. This one seems really exciting if they can keep up the content.

They say McMansions are dead, but if you happen to already have one , this is a nice way to decorate it.
We like how the scale is done. The rooms seem enormous, but the furnishings are scaled accordingly ....They look tasteful, don't they?

up on the fireplace mantle. It's the same old black tin houses and wire trees
from the last few years.
But I changed it up a bit with the addition of the
"spooky" cheesecloth from the dollar store.I found those
darling silhouette trick or treaters
at Big Lots.
They were only six dollars so even on my tight budget
I could rob a little from the grocery budget to buy them. Is it wrong to choose decorations over food?
At my house the decorations last much longer than the food,
so doesn't that make them a good investment?
We often get inquiries about this striking chandelier:
