Halloween on {ETSY}

I’ve been working on a bunch of projects that I have been bringing to local craft shows and listing on my Etsy shop. I thought I would share them with you all and tell you a little bit about them. I don’t have tutorials for all of them but most of them are pretty self explanatory. 
I made some mini BOO frames using mini picture frames. I painted the frames black and put Halloween scrapbook paper in them. Used my Cricut to cut the letters out of black cardstock. I love their mini size and they’d look cute just about anywhere!
I also made some larger versions of the BOO frames. These are 4×6 frames and I basically did the same things as I did with the mini frames. I like changing up the papers, colors, and fonts to give each set a whole new look!!!
I always have odds and ends of 2×4 hanging around in my garage, left over from projects before. I gathered up some pieces to make some big chunky wood pumpkins. I grabbed some that were the same length and grouped them in threes. I painted each set bright pumpkin orange and tied them off with a green satin bow. I made a few different heights to give some variety and if they are grouped together they look like the cutest pumpkin patch ever!!! 
 While I was out in the garage gathering up wood for my wood pumpkins I came across some cuts of 2×4 that were staggered in length. I painted each block a different color; starting with yellow, orange, and white. I stacked them all on top of each other to create a wooden candy corn. I glued each block together with wood glue and tied them off with some twine. It is so stinkin cute!!!
I made these pumpkin sets for the first time last year. Again, I used the ever present: 2×4’s!!! The hubby used the router to cut in two lines down the front of the boards and I painted them orange. After a good distressing I finished them off with a brown stem tied off with some twine. I love this little wooden pumpkin patch!!!
To finish things off this season I wanted to make some orange tabletop chalkboards. Wouldn’t this be a great addition to your holiday decor…..maybe add a little spooky message or a reminder to just take one sweet treat {or two}. 
So if you’ve been wondering, on any given day this past month, what I’ve been up to??? It probably involved orange, pumpkins, and all things “Fall”. If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, please visit my Etsy Shop while they last!!!
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
