I had originally made this for my daughter for Christmas last year, both she and i got a girls weekend trip to Boise, ID to see "Wicked" the broadway show so instead of just giving her the tickets, I made a "Wicked" gift basket and included this:

Being so close to Christmas, I didn't have time to have Hubs cut out the letters so instead, I bought pre-made ones from Micheals, painted and decorated them, and then attached them onto the base. Even though it was made for a Christmas gift, it makes a darling Halloween decoration as well :)

Mummy Cakes....

A fun easy treat for the Halloween season is Mummy Cakes:

All you need are Hostess Ding Dongs, a bag of Reese's Pieces, white frosting, and black frosting ( I used the decorating kind in the tubes).  Just unwrap your ding dongs and place them on a plate. Use the white frosting and zig zag across the top of the Ding Dong to create the bandage look, then use the black frosting to separate it, place two eyes on each and dot with black frosting.  Easy Sneezy!!!!

DIY Earring Holder.....

I made this earring holder for my sister for her birthday. I bought a frame that I liked and then painted it the color that I wanted. I painted her initial onto the burlap and then I sprayed the burlap with fabric stiffener so that it would be able to hold earrings without sagging. I stapled the burlap into the frame and glued the rosette onto the corner:

I bought a mini easel so that she would have something to hold it up and it was done. Easy and cute, my favorite kind of gift :)

Paint brush or sponge brushes

1.Paint the frame black and the letters orange, let dry (or use whatever color scheme you want).
2.Trace letters with scrapbook paper, cut out and Modge Podge them onto the wood letters. Press out any wrinkles and allow to dry.
3.When completely dry, sand the edges of the paper until you get a nice finished look, then ink around all of the edges.
4. Glue the letters onto the frame and then glue the googly eyes so that they completely cover it.
5.Place pix in the middle and you're done!
