Let the Decorating begin !!
:actually it's all done... this past weekend:
Love my old cauldron...
The ceramic pumpkins were a B-day gift from my sister-in-law Judy...
My hanging Wreath is made of Spring flowers with a Heavy coat of Black spray paint...
Yep- those are bricks under the pumpkins- holds down the cloth nicely !!
And the Crow is a creation involving my printer, an Old Sawn Cedar Shingle annnnnnd- Mod Podge !!
Slap on a pouffy ribbon and its Done !!
Coming up onto the patio... Can you tell by all the leaves that are Fallen it is Fallen ?
My Big ol' Rocker I found used a month or so ago...
May I say 'Score !!' ?
(Ignore the white Bucket please)
Another Mod Podge Creation- use any Wooden Board you can get Your hands on
-I am not too Proud to Beg so at the Lumber counter-...
This Sweet gal-Sascha- at Lowes cut my 1" x 10" x 8' board into Pieces for Me !?!
Print out your saying.
Spray paint your board a Nice Pea Greenish colour. Let dry.
Apply Mod Podge and Print. Let dry.
More Mod Podge of course...
Use liquid shoe polish to 'Age' the sign.
Use spotty Ribbon for a Hanger.
And if you could see Closer...
Use 8mm Bone Carved Skull Beads along the top-
All you have to do is Drive Nails down thru the bead hole in the Skulls !!!
:Insert a Crazed Maniacs Evil Chortle here:
On the Railing... a little Three legged iron Cauldron...
Fake Acorns held down with a Slab of Rock-
Corn-King with His Kittheh on the railing.
Painted this 'Sascha-cut-Board' Black after drilling & gluing in Knobs.
Mod Podge Saying that I printed out.
Attach Beaded Dangley Spider from a slice of Twisted Wire...
Isn't She a Pretty Spider ?
Wrapped Shirleys Rocker in some Yardage...
Can we all See that I Like Bright ??
Arrangement by the Patio Door... Shelf with Drawer was a Uckky Powder Blue.
Spray painted Ivory.
Then Worked over with Black Creme Shoe polish and a bit of the Brown Liquid Shoe Polish....
I was Going for that 'Chalk pain-Waxed' looking style.
Again... Made the Sign-
Painted the Birdhouse-
Made the Baby Besom...
A Bit Closer-
All you need to construct the Baby Besom is a length of Dowel, a nice Patch of Dry Grasses, a twist of Wire to attach the grass to your 'Broom handle', a bit of a Trim to the Grass ...
And a good Smearing of Black Creme Shoe-polish on the Dowel !!!
Then I Wrapped a bit of Satin Ribbon arund to give it a Boost...
Easy Peasy !!
My Crow... I Love Him (or Her? ) !!
Now as you are Leaving the Porch...
