Halloween Vase



I went to the Scrapbook Barn in Dallas on Friday night with Marianne and the SASSY gals. I was pretty pleased that I was able to finish two home decor projects that I wanted for my dining room. The vase above was an unfinished wine bottle box. I took the strap handle off and painted the inside and edges black. I then decoupaged with Mod Podge Daisy D's scrapbook papers on each side. Painted the lid and put it on the bottom as a base and... voila!... my vase is done!

The vase below was an unfinished wood container. It too had a lid that I decided to not use at all. I got it at Hobby Lobby for only $1.99! I wrapped polka dot paper by Paper Studio around the base and cut the skull and crossbones with the Indie Art cricut cartridge. I added Trick or Treat ribbon around the top and bottom and decoupaged the whole thing. I painted some wooden balls green and glued them to the bottom for feet. The roses are the final touch. This is gonna look great with my other Halloween decorations on the buffet in my dining room!
