Double Trouble Part 2

Welcome to day 5 of the 5 days of Halloween!! Happy Friday!! We are going to pick up where we left off yesterday. We were talking about decor that can be used for two different holidays. This decor is meant to be fast and easy to put together and look very cute in your home! It will also save on your storage space!

Let’s Get Started

Project #1


This first project is brought to you by Target. They come out with wooden figures ever year. This year they had pumpkins, turkeys and apples. (When you see things like the apples, pick them up for teachers gifts) The HOME words and the jack-o-lantern face are also from Target.

I also used some Waverly Chalk Paint in Pumpkin, and a red paint pen. You might want to have some liquid glue on hand and a paint brush.

So do you want to know how easy this is!!?? On the side of the pumpkin without the lines I painted it with the Waverly Chalk Paint in Pumpkin. While that dried, I mixed some of the pumpkin paint with water and lightly brushed it over the side of the pumpkins with the lines on it. It will wash over like a stain so you can still see the wood grain.

As my pumpkin dried, I moved on to the HOME stickers. The letters in this were brown and they did not pop off the pumpkin like I wanted them to. Through some trial and error I figured out he best way to paint the letters was to use a paint pen. So I painted them red with the paint pen,

Finally, I stuck the letters on the side of the pumpkin with the lines. If they do not stick, use some liquid glue. On the fully orange side of the pumpkin I put the jack-o-lantern face on it.

This pumpkin would look great as a focal point, or in a 3-tiered tray. It is one of the easies crafts I have ever done. When you are shopping in places like Target, look and see what can be put together quickly. You will be very happy with your decision!

Project #2


Project #2 is just as easy as the first! You will need one of these wooden pumpkins from Dollar Tree. The words are from Target. The paint I used was Waverly Chalk Paint in Ink and Pumpkin. The only other things I used was a paint brush and some ribbon.

Start by painting the front and the back of the sign in Waverly Chalk Paint in Pumpkin. Once that is dry, paint the face that is raised up on the pumpkin with Waverly Chalk Paint in Ink. If you could not find the pumpkin with the face already on it, then draw one on with a Sharpie marker or cut out paper or felt and glue it on the pumpkin.

On the other side I places these vinyl stickers on it from Target. I thought the pumpkin still looked a bit plan so I added a bow.

How easy was that!? This is a very simple wall hanger that adds some color to a room. It is also very easy to store away once the holidays are done.

Project #3


This third project uses these little stands from Dollar Tree. They are in the wedding section. I also used some Waverly Chalk Paint in Ink, some flowers from Dollar Tree, a ghost sticker from Dollar Tree, some twine, paint brush, and hot glue gun. To add words to this project, I used my Cricut and some 651 vinyl.

To start this project I painted one of the stands with Waverly Chalk Paint in Ink. This took a few coats because the stands are very glossy. I really like the more matte look and wish I would have painted the white one with white paint.

Next I added the words to the stands. I used 651 vinyl that I cut from my Cricut. Most of the time I get my SVGs off of Etsy or the Cricut design studio. If you do not have a cutting machine, you can use stickers or glue on a free printable.

Finally, I used hot glue and added twine to the bottom of the stand. I started gluing the end of the twine to the bottom of the stand. Then I began wrapping the twine around and around. I would put hot glue anywhere I felt the twine was not holding. After that I put a flower on one side of the sign and a ghost on the other.

These make me so happy. They would be so cute on an entry table. Since they are small they do not take up a ton of room. The possibilities are endless for these and you can customize them very easily.

I want to wish you a great and happy Friday. Have a wonderful weekend and come back next week for a new Tool Tuesday and we are moving into fall. Christmas crafts are coming too!!

As always Please Like, Share, Comment, and Subscribe!

Have a wonderful weekend!
