My Halloween Hoosier

Yep, I'm still alive!  I finally had a few things I really needed to share.  I had a creative burst of energy.  Lots of Halloween ideas swimming in my head.  A few Saturdays ago I worked all day on those ideas.  I still don't have everything made but here's a few that found a home on my Hoosier cabinet.

An overall look...

I covered my vintage cherry canisters with text print pages that were zig-zag stitched together.  Then, stenciled some rats from Martha Stewart.  The letters are silver embossed, mounted on frozen concentrate juice lids.  I glued magnets to the back of each letter, to attach them temporarily to the canisters.

More vintage orange enamelware pan with Scrabble letters, a Gurley jack o'lantern candle and a flocked Halloween card.

A few Gurley candles mixed in with some very similar vintage Airwick Air Fresheners.  These were a big score for me two years ago in What Cheer!  They were in the boxes.  I bought every style the vendor had and she made me a deal.  I could just kicked myself for not buying all of them!  She made me a really good deal!

Apples in a cupcake tin.  An easel made from an old fork.  If you aren't aware...a few lines from the witch in the movie Snow White.

I'm super excited to share this rosette (or medallion) I made by piecing together different designer series papers.  I simply butted the edges together and zig-zag stitched over the seam.  I added Scotch tape over the seam in back, just to prevent any tearing of the paper.

Here's a close-up.  Please look past the breaks in the black paper!

I've always wanted to make one of these punch art pumpkins, so here's my chance!

I have more areas of the house to share, I just need to add those finishing touches...


  1. When I picked up the haunted house with the ghost coming out, I thought it was a candle. When I realized it wasn't, I decided it would look good with my Gurley candles. I went on Ebay and that's how I found out it was an air freshener! Definitely keeping my eyes peeled for more of these. Still lovin' how you decorated your hoosier!
    Have a great week!

  2. Keep sharing! This makes me want to go straight home and re-do the Hoosier!

  3. ...thought I just left a comment but maybe not ... anyway, love this!
