IIIIIIII got to do some consignment shopping this weekend. Yee Hee! I have been on a search for some bell jars since the beginning of time, and I come up short every single trip. Poor me. However, I DID get some cute Halloweeny stuff. Let us look at exhibit A.
I've been eyeing them at Hobby Lobby, but just never broke down and spent the money. BUT when it's only $1.99, it's too good to pass up. I saw a similar makeover on Martha some time ago, and I knew I had just the lack of skills to do it.
Perhaps not as spooky with the brass Christmas wreath holder, but it's all I could find to take the picture.
Next, is exhibit B: A boring little primitive/country broom for a measly .49 cents.
Why not spruce it up with some ribbon, paint, more ribbon, some hot glue, a burned finger, and some more ribbon? I'm gonna just put it out there. I don't really like it. But I think it'll look reeeaallly cute on my daughter's bedroom door. It's just whymsical enough for a little girl's room, and she likes it.
I hate it when I've spent time on a project and my vision never made it to the end product. This sucker may get torn apart at some point. Darn. Well, it is my opinion that Halloween decorating is officially ON. I'll have some more coming up for you. If you're already tired of it--shame on you. It's the kick off to the holiday season!! How can we ever be tired of holidays? (Yes, I'm annoying about holidays.)
