It is the first Monday of the month and we hop with the Designer Crafts Connection, this month Halloween inspired crafting! Living in a 175 year old house with several fireplaces and mantel I enjoy coming up with different decor for each one. The brick fireplace off the kitchen has a more vintage look inspired by my pumpkin kitty. The tree I sprayed with Krylon black paint. I added ribbon to some of my existing vases to tie in with the Halloween sign and black mantel. Using everyday items by adding floral or ribbon touches expands your decorating options. With five mantels to decorate I reuse vases, containers, boxes a lot!
I wasn't sure though what to add to the tree. Then I thought of trick or treating. Candy of course, the classic candy corn! Felt candy corn with black ribbon scraps I had been collecting.
Check out my easy peasy instructions for the felt candy corn on the Kunin Blog tomorrow. Meanwhile hop along on the DCC button in the sidebar for some great Halloween ideas!
