Absolutely LOVE this costume.  She is so adorable!  Great movie, too.  Smiley

Nice!  I love seeing pumpkins done up in things other than the typical faces.  Great job!
23  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / New Witch BOO'ts - Paper Mache on: October 17, 2011 02:24:00 PM
Only had time for a few new Halloween paper mache Witch BOO'ts, but I'd thought I'd share them.  If you aren't familiar with these, I posted about some a while back here.  They are made with paper mache and cereal box cardboard.  I make them mostly for craft swaps.

Made this one by request to look vintage Halloween.  The star dangle is made using yellow polymer clay.  There are more pics on the blog.

I tried an experimental illusion.  It's called "star-crossed lovebirds".  There are birds on the back of the boot that help to make a skull image with the moon, while a black cat on each side are preparing to pounce.  This one is for a giveaway I'm hosting on my craft blog for my followers.  Again, there are more pics on the blog.

This one was for a swap I did earlier this year with ohmybees here on Craftster.  We're getting ready to do another in a few months.  I'm all excited to get started on another swap.  It's been too long already.  More pics here.

I'm so grateful for Craftster.  I wouldn't be making these boots if it wasn't for a Halloween swap I did a few years ago on here.  I'm having so much fun with them.   Can't believe time is going by so fast!  Thanks for lookin'

Have a SPOOK-tacularly Be-WITCH-ing Halloween!

I received a great locker hooked turtle rug from rottenlittleboys!

She used different colors of felt fabric strips to weave the this rug.  It has a nice plush feel to it.  Its about a foot wide at the moment.  She left the edges unfinished so that my mom and I can add to it to make it larger to put on the floor of our yurt we use for camping.  Our goal is to finish the round rug at a 12ft diameter!  We have a lot of work before us.  But, the turtle will be an adorable centerpiece.  Smiley

Thank you so much for swapping, rottenlittleboys!

Thanks, Jinjeet. 

We have family day every Sunday where we take turns deciding what we will do for the day.  I love when we get to make crafts together.  She always has such great ideas.  Smiley

that is the sweetest gift ever!! your daughter rocks!...

Isn't she the best?!  Couldn't ask for a nicer girl.  Smiley

...P.S. Way to get her hooked to crafts at such a young age!

I'm crossing my fingers that it sticks.  Cheesy

Look familiar?  If you're a Craftster fan, it should be VERY familiar.  Cheesy   (If not, keep refreshing the top of this page 'til ya see 'em.)

My 8 year old daughter made me Craftster's CORKGUY!  Isn't he cute?

She's so sweet.  I just love him.  I mean, really, how could I not?  He's cool, huh?  Bet you wish you had one.  Wink

The daughter is constantly watching over my shoulder as I make my various projects for swaps and challenges with all my hoarded pieces of "scrap and junk".  The other day she expressed a desire to make something for me.   So, how could I resist letting her have at my tubs of supplies?  She found some corks and leftover bits of wire hanger from past projects and came up with him.  Her choice of gift should reveal two things about me:  I keep EVERYTHING! And, I spend a great deal of time on this site!  Cheesy   

I'd also like to take this time to thank Craftster and everyone who contributes there time and clever projects to this site for us to enjoy!  We appreciate all the wonderful inspiration and information.

Thank you, everyone!

This is such a great idea.  Much better than just stuffing bags into each other until they're ready to burst.

LOL!  We still have a few of those.  Smiley  But, we set time aside every once in awhile when tube stocks are low to stuff them.  When the tubes become empty they are stored in the pantry with the spare full ones until the next go round.  Works pretty well.  I do have to say the tubes are easier to stack than the giant bags o' bags.  Smiley

Thanks AD and MW! 

Daughter has suggested we make a face or some eyes peeking out of the hat rim.  I'll post an update if we try it.
