Hump day crafts: Halloween stuff

November 3, 2010

Halloween is just one of those holiday made for crafters, isn’t it? Today I’ll share a few things i did for Halloween, including some things that are really different for me.

First, I’m still loving SCAL. Here’s a bowl I decorated with some vinyl:

And then there’s my experiment with heat transfer vinyl (HTV) to make Thing 2’s firefighter costume a little more authentic (the reindeer was my practice run):

And now for something completely different. Thing 1 was wearing a fairy costume G’ma sewed a few years ago (it finally fit!). To dress it up just a bit we found some Palmer face paint pots (love these!) in our Halloween box and did her up right:

Isn’t she adorable? I should note that the blue down on her chin is from candy, not paint, since we didn’t get any good photos before we left for trick or treating. And if you’ll indulge me, here’s one of Things 1&2 out trick or treating:

As I mentioned, T1’s fairy costume was made by G’ma. T2’s costume was clothes we already had with things added (the above design and reflective tape on the pants). I made their bags last year, and they’re still the perfect size for them, although they tend to fill up quickly. Also, T1’s hair bows I bought from a local mom who sells her wares on Facebook as Dips Dots and Dashes. Lots of inspiration here! I hope I get as much or more done next Halloween.

Happy crafting!
