Halloween Inspiration


Our town has a Market Day the first Saturday during the months of April through December.  Last year my friends, Kari and Jamie, and I made a few items to sell.  I was looking for some Halloween inspiration for this year and decided to look through my photos on Facebook.  I came across these photos and decided to share them with you.  We had a great response to our items and enjoyed chatting with our friends and meeting new ones too.


This pirate pumpkins was one of my favorites.  You can't see it, but he had a wire handle with colored beads.  You could hang him on your door or somewhere inside.

Small ornaments for spooky branches

The door buckets were a hit and could be personalized.  I had one on my door filled with branches that I spray painted black.


The trick-or-treat pails could be personalized with your little goblin's name.  I first starting painting these for my children years ago and they have reused them every year.  I have also used them to hold mums and to hold my candy for trick-or-treaters.


We offered pails in two different sizes.  The larger ones were great to use as a planter for mums.

This is what the door bucket looked liked before I put some one's initials on it.






The pails were also personalized.

Well, there you have it!  I hope this gets you in the Halloween mood and maybe even inspire you to make something spooky...or not so spooky.

Thanks for stopping by!
