Road Trip To A New Haunt

Mask one of my candle head pumpkins is off to a new home to haunt this year he will be relocating to Massachusetts.

I thought I would share a few pictures I shot of him before shipping him off.

I hope they enjoy him and that they all have a frightful Halloween!

And just a reminder that I will be hosting the House of Dewberry's first Halloween give away taking place in October which is almost here! Feel free to subscribe and be kept up to date. Have fun!

Dollar Store Halloween Craft Orange Pumpkin Serving Tray

In my last post I showed how I made-over a plastic Halloween tray which can be view here -> Halloween Serving Tray Makeover into a creepy crawler candle, serving tray. This post is an extension to that one.

This time I made it in a different color. The only real difference being is I used scrap booking paper on the paper towel roll candle and I didn't add any bead garland.
So there it is, a different variation and a simple Halloween craft. Thanks for looking!

Dollar Store How-to Halloween Serving Tray Makeover

Easy Dollar Store Plastic Plate Makeover for Halloween Goodies.

One simply cannot have too many serving trays at a Halloween feast to compliment the delightfully creepy fare one presents to their frightful visitors...

You wouldn't just throw bat wings or zombie brains on a floral vintage plate and call it a fright? Would you!

Anywho, I happened upon this transparent black plastic skull head serving tray and knew right away what it's potential was.

So I took it home and painted it black

It looked nice just black too

But I took it further anyway and dry brushed it with green metallic craft paint which added a kind of polished metal worn factor to it.

I thought it looked pretty authentic and far more sinister than the original plastic transparent plate, which by the way there is nothing wrong with the plastic plate, I love that the dollar store offers items that one can purchase and use as is at such a great price!

So there you have it an easy peasy Halloween serving tray makeover that cost little and takes about 10 min's to transform, depending on how fast the black paint dries and in the end turns into something far different and terrifically terrifying.

And since I just can't seem to keep it simple, here is how mine actually turned out in the end.

Thanks for looking and remember there are only 57 days left until Halloween! Yay!
