Double Double toil+trouble; fire burn+cauldron bubble...{Macbeth, Shakespeare}


I rounded up my favorite items we have collected over the years but some you can purchase now for your holiday gatherings. Major score finding a 3pk of skulls for $10 for my chandelier. We planned to zip tie them on but witnessed a halloween miracle when they slipped right over the lights. Love our life sized +bendable Mr. Skeleton whose eyes also light up-total score for $30.

b l a c k+flag+b u n t i n g DIY:

We have been using these flags for over 10 years. Pirate parties, viking parties, Harry potter day, and over the hill celebrations.

I originally used a sheet set from IKEA, honestly its the smartest way to go for garlands-ruffled, pleated, beaded or braided? My most favorite hack to get it much wider+cheaper than by the yard.

Measure how wide you want your flags, snip, rip for a perfect straight line and organic edges, fold down and cut the length you want each to be. Fold in half, measure up 1.5'' for a 5" wide flag and snip from the outside edge into the center. Repeat until you've made at least 30+. Bust out that hot glue gun+twine, draw a line of glue about a half inch down, lay the twine+fold the top of the flag over+add another line of glue as needed. LOVE having a variety of sizes, minis measuring 3" wide up to 9" as well.

Diy rolled paper SKULL wreath

My friend Mary and I have made this wreath maybe 3+times over the last 11 years. Not quite sure why our husbands and/or? kids somehow have throw them away..grrrr. they're so simple, you could whip up a new one in one crafternoon-especially if you put them to work ripping out the pages of a vintage book {the best-for that dingey yellow edge} or in our case this go around- lyrics of Micheal Jackson songs. Here are a few tips to get your party started.

Starting with a sturdy paper plate-STAPLE each book page to the outer rim-get them nice+tight slightly overlapping each. About 40. They will need a line of glue up the seam to hold them in place until you are ready to secure them. VINTAGE BOOKS LINKED HERE

Follow with a second row of the same size skinny cones- this time using hot glue having them meet in the center of the plate. don't worry-we'll cover the mess with something real cute.. be sure to hit this link to download yours. SKULL PRINTABLE LINKED HERE


1.Cut out your skull+mount on thick black cardstock

2.Spray paint, acrylic or water color a 12" doily black-let dry

3.Using brown packing paper, slightly smaller than doily- fold back+forth an inch to create accordion texture.

4.Hot glue each layer-ending with a striped string bow tie right below his chin or glitter on his crown + loop of twine on the back with a piece of paper over lapping the ends to secure.
