Upcycled Day of the Dead Gnome

Upcycled Day of the Dead Gnome

October means Halloween celebrations for many of us, but here in San Antonio it also means Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. In looking for creative reuse ideas for Day of the Dead, I stumbled across a number of adorable gnome skeletons. So I prowled my local Goodwill for the perfect ceramic gnome to decorate and share with you.

DIY Witch Mask



My youngest little one asked to be a witch for Halloween this year. We've already worked on making her hat, and this week I'm sharing how we made her witch mask over at DIY Candy. I found some fun inspiration for the materials I used; stop by and find out how to make your own!

#Chalkitup is always one of our favorite events of the year. Thank you @artpace and thanks @sama_art for the public mural space! #satxbloggers

Artpace's annual Chalk It Up event is one of our faves every year. We went again this past weekend, and although the day started off with rain, the clouds cleared and the streets dried, and we got our chalk on!

DIY Stenciled Napkins

DIY Stenciled Napkins

We traded out disposable napkins for cloth years ago and have never looked back. But eventually cloth napkins get a little faded and stained. So I'm always on the lookout for napkins when I make a trip to the thrift store. My favorites are ones with a little whimsy, but it's easy to spruce up any plain napkins with FolkArt Stencils & Paints. I used some of the new FolkArt Stencil1 stencils to make this cute set of napkins and want to show you guys how easy it is to put a bird on your own napkins (or just about anything else)!
