Halloween Labels


It's that time again! Time to add a lil creepy to our homes. And this year I did something new. I ordered some sticky Halloween themed labels from ebay, (because I didn't feel like going out and buying the sticker paper & buying images on Etsy at the moment.) So it was just because I wanted the easy way out, or I'd have taken the time to do so. lol.

I made a lil box of things with labels to go in my Peddlers Mall booth as well. Here they are after I used what I needed, I packaged the left over labels up for sale in my booth also. So people can put them on what they want, if they don't like my pre-made items.
As you see, they are just basically pre-made stickers with cute Halloween themes. That's it. Ready to stick. Just find an object to put them on. Here's some more pics of how I used them below on an old medicine bottle, can of beans and a can of tuna. I just took off the original labels and stuck them right on.

 

And here's a little display I made on the front porch. Note the cute little barn wood cabinet that my wonderful hubby Greg made! Gotta love a crafty man! :-)

I love these labels. So simple but they add a unique look for my decorations. I need to go snap some pics of the yard and area my husband decorates. I may add some later on, if I can remember.

Happy Crafting!

PRIMITIVE BARN WOOD STOOL with Old Crow

 This cute little barn wood stool came from some old pieces of barn lumber we had left over from other crafts.  None of the pieces were large enough for cabinets or shelves, so I had to think up something smaller to make.

I first drew out a really basic sketch, kinda resembling this little stool and asked
my husband if he could make it.  After he did, I was surprised to see it was exactly how I had drew it.

AWESOME!
Well, then it was all completely gray.  Just the way the old barn lumber mostly is.
So I took some black craft paint and painted all the newly sawed edges.

Then I got out one of my favorite stencils, the Old Crow, and put it on the front.

I then stenciled on an few little tiny black stars to the side. Just trying to give it an even more "prim" look.
Then I kind of dry brushed on some streaks of black paint to give it a more aged look.
And that was about it.





If you like the Old Barn Lumber Toolbox that it is sitting by,
you can find my post on that here.


I just love it. But I have to admit, I just about love anything made out of old recycled barn lumber!

PRICE: $14.95 SOLD in my Booth #555
Thank You!
