21  BIG Spiderweb in Halloween Decor and Parties by loveforart on: July 24, 2012 05:32:58 PM
I put this up last year on our porch. The person who I got the idea from actually made theirs twice as big!

All that was used was a lot of rope, some pins to keep the rope in place (which causes sore fingers!) and then the spider which I ordered at wal-mart online.

I am pretty happy with how it turned out. My baby niece loved it. All she would do was stare at it. Oh yea...my boyfriend doesn't like spiders either  Cheesy

22  Hollow Rocks in Halloween Decor and Parties by loveforart on: July 24, 2012 05:28:00 PM
I made these last year...Unfortunately I guess I didn't take a picture of it painted so when I pull them out this year I will have to take a picture and post it.

It is made out of a cardboard box. One side has been cut out. From there I just glued some crumpled up newspapers on the box and got to paper mache'ing!!!
After it was dry, I then painted it with drylock to make it waterproof. It also gives it a rocky texture.

After a few coats of that I spray painted it grey and then used some black spray paint to give some detail.

Here is a picture of it with the paper mache on it...

It was made to put a light inside and the light would shine on another decoration. Just a way to hide the light.

Like I said before, I will have to take a picture of the finished rock when I pull it out for Halloween. I will re post it then so you can see it.

23  Novel Wreaths in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by loveforart on: July 20, 2012 10:49:17 AM
Hello everyone!

I wanted to show off two of my novel wreaths. The flowers are made out of old books I no longer wanted. After I finished the first wreath I said I wouldn't do another because it took me a while to make, well of course my grandma said she wanted one and I just couldn't say no so that is my second one! Another one of my grandmothers has requested one also so I have one more to make (hopefully)!  Cheesy

This is the first one. This one went to my mom. It matches the colors in the kitchen and living room, which was not the way it was planned. I just love the color red!

This is where it was first put but it is hanging up now. I don't have a picture of that one.

This is the one for my grandmother. She picked out the colors. The thing I don't like about this one is the way the ivory color looks yellow compared to the white pages but she said she liked it....but I doubt she would have told me if she didn't like it! LOL.

I got this idea off of a post on here. I would have posted the link on here but I ended up deleting it from my favorites after I made the first one so thanks to that person anyways!!

24  Bats!!! in Halloween Decor and Parties by loveforart on: July 12, 2012 12:42:21 PM
I am very excited about my first Halloween craft of the year! The plan is to make quite a few of these and put them outside on the front of the house so it looks like a swarm (or whatever you call a group) of bats.

These are my first two. They are uneven as you can see but I have time to work on that! Hope you like them!

I sure hope this works! This is my first post on here although I have been lurking around for a while.

Here are some pictures of the wreath:

And here is where I got the idea from!: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=401309.0
