Halloween Decor

This month is just flying by and I have so much left to do.  Why is it that when you have a long to do list, the days just fly by.
I have some glass vases for Halloween that you can use to decorate your home.  I love these, they look great and are so easy to decorate.

I started with some paper die cuts:
I distressed the white fence with some Tim Holtz distrssed ink, walnut stain and black soot

and added some black birds used a Martha Stewart paper punch
I purchased three different sizes of glass at the dollar store

paired them up with candle holders
I used Gorilla Glue to glue them together, let it dry over night

add your cut outs using Mod Podge glue

here's a different version using a Sharpie marker for the vine and the same Martha Stewart paper punch for the birds

Hope you're all having a spooky day!


  1. These look great! Love all the creepy little touches you added to the glass jars! Such a great idea!

  2. Man how do you come up with these things? Sandie

  3. These are so cute!! If you ever quit your "day job" you could do crafts full time and I bet you would do well with it, like an eTSY shop or something! You are very talented with what you do! I know I said that before, but you are!

    Have a safe Halloween!


  4. I LOVE IT!! I don't have these exact dies, but the concept is awesome! Thanks Maria, and Happy Halloween to you and yours! ~tina
