Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Halloween Invitations- Easy

Now that all my Halloween Invitations have been delivered I can post.  Not that many people know I blog....
I got all my paper and stamps a little later than normal.  So I needed a quick project.  The stamps are new from Stampin Up and these little baggies you can pick up there too.  I picked up the Halloween Candy at the Bulk Barn as there were a ton of Halloween candy choices. 

I loaded all the candy one at a time.  It's time consuming but worth it.  I distressed and rolled a scroll with all the Ghoulish Party info.
I cut the squares on my Cricut.  Then punched my stamps out after stamping and clear embossing.  The metal charm is from Walmart tied with Hemp.  The stamples are attached with my Tiny Attacher.
This ticket is a Tim Holtz die cut and then stamped.
All my invites together
These little baggies are awesome and will be great for Christmas too!  A little different take on a Halloween Invitation but totally fun!  My house is spookified, the banners are hung, the spiders are cra…

Distressed Halloween Tag

Look out I am distressing again! 
I can't help it...it's my new passion and I think it's here to stay!  My darling husband and I were invited to our good friends home for some pool and darts Saturday.  We all made some yummy appy's, my husband made salmon skewers and I made pumpkin cheesecake.  I made a Thank You tag to go with the appy's we brought.  Not to mention some of the techniques I learned from crafty BFF!
I distressed the medium sized tag with my inks then stamped the Trick or Treat and Skeleton, both from SU.  After that was dry I ran it though my Tim Holtz Halloween embossing folder.  Then I spritzed gold all over the tag.  I only have the Perfect Pearls (without the fixative) that will smudge off if you don't set it.  So, if you have these use hairspray to set the shimmer.  Then it won't come off.

You can see the embossing here over the skeleton. And I banged out the metal brads with my new hammer!
I tied with MS ribbon and distressed a bat charm …

A BEVY OF MONSTERS

***WARNING...CUTE ALERT***

The Monsters and Creeps are out and around.  So lock your doors to keep safe and sound.
If you are looking for a great Halloween card that is UNDER 10 MINUTES to build this is it.  I made a variety of these to give you different ideas of creeps you can make.  From start to finish these Halloween cards are a breeze and would be perfect for a class, office and for some friends.  I made these in between making projects...mostly waiting for things to dry!  The googlie eyes are different sizes make them so cute. 
All the cards are stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps Halloween set Bewitched! Mummy

Frankenstein
Candy Corn
Vampire, I love this one!  I didn't distress the white glitter paper.  Then added this red glitter glue to the fangs.
Ghost, I posted this the other day HERE
All my fun cards together
I cut the cards to 5x5.  Then I cut a 4 3/3x 4 3/4 black for the black behind the googlie eyes.  Pick your coloured carstock and rip.  I distressed the torn edges a bit then…

GHOST POOP ANYONE?

Welcome to Simply Betty Stamps, 12 Days of Halloween
On the 5th day of Halloween... there were Five Scary SPOOKS...BOO! Who doesn't need Ghost Poop?  If you want to find the ghosts you have to look closely.  After all ghosts are hard to find.  Here's a hint...there are a few spooking across the bag.  They are very ghostly!  I used opaque cotton white Stays On ink with my roller stamp.  I used a roller with Trick or Treaters and made them ghostly.  Then I added a little black ink to help them pop from the poop. 
The topper is a Tim Holtz folder and I de-embossed it with some shimmery grey paper.
Witchy Boo Betty is flying by with her sPOOky cat.
I added this charm I picked up from Walmart and tied with some mesh screening.

With 3 ghostly trick or treaters (floating behind the bat fence), a bag of ghost poop I needed one more GHOST!  But only if your counting.  So I made this cute quick ghost card to go with the ghost poop!  The paper is a pearl coloured paper that I added a little …
