A Few More Decorations

I made a quick trip to Salvation Army the other day to look for inspiration for a few more crafts before Halloween comes and goes. I found some canning jars for .50 and a plate display stand, also .50. Here is what I came up with.



The plate display stand works great with canvas pictures. I grabbed this canvas 11x14 at Joanns for $5. I cut out the vinyl stencil using Cricut Word Collage cartridge. I laid the stencil down and painted in my colors. I allowed it to dry over night and tada!



The canning jars were super easy. I came home and washed them, painted the lids white, and filled them with candy corn. I cut out the word candy with my Alphabet cartridge and put the vinyl on. I tried to mod podge over it so they stayed on better but you could see where it was on the glass so I washed it off.


Here is a Halloween Countdown I made, come back Tuesday as I will do Tutorial Tuesday on this countdown!!



Last, but certainly not least, how cute is this vest?! It is Janie and Jack, I just love it!! Perfect for the fall days in Michigan.



Do you have any last minute decorations you are trying to finish?

I'm pretty sure you have the cutest daughter EVER. And I love how the candy jars came out!

That is so sweet Katie! Thank you! The candy jars were so easy, if you don't have a Cricut or Silhouette machine you could always use stickers.

Thanks! I love J&J, a little expensive for me, so I usually search EBAY for the good deals.

I love your Halloween canvas. I have to say though that I am not a crafty person so I am still a little unclear on how you made it with the different colors. Are the different colors vinyl or you had an 11x14 stencil with the words cut out that your painted? For this uncrafty person could you please explain it to me a little better and help me out. Thanks so much.

Courtney, sorry I wasn't more clear with the canvas. I cut my words into vinyl on my Cricut. Instead of laying the letters down individually I took them out of the vinyl and laid down the sheet of vinyl that was left. So it left the words all cut out. I then took Black Orange and Purple fabric paint and painted it into the stencil. I let it dry over night and then picked up my stencil. I still have the letters that I cut out saved for other projects. Basically buy cutting the letters out and placing them to the side I made my own stencil with the vinyl to fill in.

I love it. What a great idea to paint this on canvas! I have this cartridge, too. I cut it out and used the negative space and backed it with a cute halloween printed paper.
