We’re getting closer to my favorite holiday! I totally forgot to post my Saturday Styles yesterday but this next week I plan on sharing some simple costumes to put together in case you’re in a rush for some last minute parties or events.
Today, I am sharing three Pinterest Halloween crafts that I found. They seem super easy, pretty cheap to recreate, and creepy enough to use in your home for this spooky holiday. Yes, Halloween in a holiday to me.
I found this on Pinterest and the link sent me to Kerli (one of my favorite artists) on her Buzznet account. However, there is no tutorial on how to create these beautiful vases. It does seem simple though.
1. Find vases at thrift stores or yard sales
2. Clean them
3. Buy black spray paint or black paint
Other materials include newspaper, face masks, and gloves.
