Halloween Decorating

 

Fun with Halloween Labels

 

It’s that time again! Time to add a lil creepy to our homes. And this year I did something new. I ordered some sticky Halloween themed labels from ebay, (because I didn’t feel like going out and buying the sticker paper & buying images on Etsy at the moment.) So it was just because I wanted the easy way out, or I’d have taken the time to do so. lol.

I made a lil box of things with labels to go in my Peddlers Mall booth as well. Here they are after I used what I needed, I packaged the left over labels up for sale in my booth also. So people can put them on what they want, if they don’t like my pre-made items.

As you see, they are just basically pre-made stickers with cute Halloween themes. That’s it. Ready to stick. Just find an object to put them on. Here’s some more pics of how I used them below on an old medicine bottle, can of beans and a can of tuna. I just took off the original labels and stuck them right on.
 
And here’s a little display I made on the front porch. Note the cute little barn wood cabinet that my wonderful hubby Greg made! Gotta love a crafty man! 🙂

I love these labels. So simple but they add a unique look for my decorations. I need to go snap some pics of the yard and area my husband decorates. I may add some later on, if I can remember.

Happy Crafting!

DIY Primitive Sidechair

Do you have an odd chair sitting around?
Need to fix up an entry spot?
This will do, and it's easy to!

A Simple DIY Primitive Sidechair

Here is a single, scuffed up $2.00 chair that I won at the local auction house:
BEFORE
I liked how it already had the popular black and wood colors. A must with primitive decorating.

And I thought I could do just a little bit to it to make it a wantable chair.

So I got out my stencils and paint.  
I used oil based stencil paint, btw. After it dries it is very durable.


But those stars above weren't large enough so I had to find another.


I use these a lot!
 

After I stenciled this "OLDE CROW PRIMTIVES" and Star on, I let it sit and cure (dry) for 24 hours.

Then I applied an all purpose paint sealer, found in the craft section at Walmart.

It will help seal it all in a bit.

 I also took some medium grade sandpaper and scuffed up the legs a bit more.


And that was all to it.
Nothing special, but it is a little bit better than just one plain odd chair.



This primitive side chair is for sell in my Peddlers Mall 
$14.99
SOLD 
Thank you

DIY: Vintage Halloween Labels

Halloween Labels

I know it's not close to time yet but here's a Halloween post.
Or if you buy other themed labels, leave them out all year.

For this post, I ordered some sticky Halloween themed labels from eBay, (because I didn’t feel like going out and buying the sticker paper & buying images on Etsy at the moment.)
Which has awesome images btw, if you've never thought of that!

I made a lil box of things with labels to go in my Peddlers Mall booth as well. Here they are after I used what I needed, I packaged the left over labels up for sale in my booth also. 

So people can put them on what they want, if they don’t like my pre-made items.
As you see, they are just basically pre-made stickers with cute Halloween themes. 
That’s it. Ready to stick. 
Just find an object to put them on. 

Here’s some more pics of how I used them below on an old medicine bottle, can of beans and a can of tuna. I just took off the original labels and stuck them right on.
 
And here’s a little display I made on the front porch. Note the cute little barn wood cabinet that my wonderful hubby Greg made! Gotta love a crafty man! :-)


I also sell them in my Booth#555.
I love these labels. 
So simple but they add a unique look for my decorations. 

Happy Crafting Ya'll!

Primitive TOBACCO STICK FENCES


I have been making these cute little fences out of tobacco sticks for a few years now.


I'm gonna show you the basics of how to put one together.

Here is one all plain, just the tobacco sticks:

Simple as it looks.
Just lay out some tobacco sticks, cut them in the lenghts you want and then nail them together.
I use a nail gun so that it goes by faster. And these tobacco sticks are a hard wood.

And then you just start to decorate them however you want.
Here are a few that I have recently made and sold in my 
Booth#555 at the Peddlers Mall.

 Look close, I used a Blue Willow tea cup as a birds nest and put a red speckled egg in it that I made here.
CLICK HERE TO SEE HOW

I wired it on with craft wire through the handle.

 As you see, I just lay them out and make a variety of types and sizes.
You really can't go wrong with this craft!

Here's a photo of a few of them in my 
Booth#555 at the Peddlers Mall.

These tobacco stick fences are $9.99 each in
my  Booth#555

Thanks to ya'll who've been buying them!!

Happy Crafting Ya'll!

OLD PRIMITIVE TRUNK


Here is a cute $5.00 trunk that I won at an auction.
It was a rusty brown color with bits of black here and there before.
I did remember to snap a before pic this time!
But only after I finished spray painting it entirely black!

Here's a pic of it, but from the back.

 Well, I knew I could do something cute with it.
So I decided to just make it a little primish.

I had a large "SIMPLIFY" stencil that I got off from eBay that I had been dieing to use.
So I got that out along with some star stencils.

And this is what it ended up like:




And here is another one that started out just like the first one.
It's just a little bit bigger.
But I forgot the before pics, or either I can't find them one.

I took a can of wine colored spray paint and kind of sprayed here and there around the edges to give it a little more interesting color.




And off to my Peddlers Mall Booth #555 it went:
I priced it for $29.99



PRICE: $29.99
Sold in my Booth#555
THANK YOU!

See ya'll next time,

EASY CRAFTS TO MAKE AND SELL

I'm going to share a post today about some of the crafts that I most frequently make to sell.  After making them, I sell them in my craft booth, Booth #555 at the Morehead Peddlers Mall.

And here is just a few that are super easy and fun!

Snowman Clothespin Magnets:
These adorable snowmen magnets are a super fun craft.  They cost only a few dollars to make a package of 50.  And as you see I price these for $1.00 each in my booth.  You can also use them as bag clips for potato chips and such.

Click Here for the full instruction list to make these.






Snowman & Pumpkin Wooden Spoons:

These are super fun and easy to make also.  And on the cheap side but you can sell them for around $2.00 and still make a profit locally.  If selling online I know you have to raise it to cover various costs.  But local sales and craft booths these can be huge money makers.  Just keep enough in stock and ready to go.

CLICK HERE for full instructions.






GRUNGY & GRUBBY TEA LIGHTS:

These are a messy craft but fun! Who doesn't love having primitive looking candles sitting around? I think they look so country, I just love them!
You can grab the plain, white candles at your local Big Lots store for cheap!

CLICK HERE for detailed instructions.





AND BATTERY OPERATED ONES AS WELL!:





banner And finally, one of my all time favorite crafts,
PRIMITIVE "KITCHEN THEMED" WOODEN SPOONS:

These are super fun and look adorable in any country kitchen. I have crocks and jars full of these in my home. And I'm adding to them every time I make a batch!
