Quick, Fun & Cheap...Burlap Owl Pictures!
Whoo's Crafting Halloween?
He's winking at you...yes, you're the guilty party!
I couldn't believe my eyes when I found the display of stretched burlap frames at Walmart last weekend! What could be better for Halloween crafting? They were
cheap inexpensive and came in a nice variety of sizes. I bought 6" by 8" (two for $3.47) and 10" by 10" ($4.47). I later went back and bought a bunch more...if you snooze, you lose, right?
I brushed a coat of modpodge on the owl pics before I cut them out.
These were so easy...literally only minutes to create! Note: because I did them in a hurry, the trim on one of my smaller pics needs to be straightened...lol! For the bigger owl I would use a heavier scrapbook paper or glue it to cardstock. The orange and black paper was printed on a heavy craft so it has a sturdier feel.
I love this owl...he looks pretty cranky!
Get out of my tree!
The possibilities are endless! If you are like me, you are a graphics
hoarder collector or have a bunch pinned to your Pinterest Halloween boards.

I found this little spice rack at a vintage flea market shop...Morgan's Emporium in Idaho Falls. I thought it would be a fun way to display some of my "littles"...those things that tend to get lost in the crowd. I backed the shelves with my favorite "newsprint" paper and hung it in my kitchen by the pantry door. The noisemakers, candle and crepe paper "popper" are from my vintage Halloween collection.
Get crafting, my little Halloweenies!
Some fun graphics I might use to make more...
I use these a lot...they're my favorites!
