Scary & On Sale

Last night I went to Joann, mainly to check out the new Halloween stuff on sale. I was surprised to find out that Martha Stewart has a Halloween line there. I was super excited! I wanted to share with you some of the cool, spooky craft and décor items they had that I was excited by. I think you will be too! Such cute and spooky stuff!

There were patterned paper packs in cute orange/yellow/green characters as well as vampire/haunted pack in blacks, red, and gothic papers.

Halloween stickers
These are just some of the stickers. I love the candy ones the best!

These glitter letters are spooky and fun! Love the little spiders!

I love these treat favor gloves! Such a cute update from the plain plastic gloves you fill with popcorn.

Of course, I heart vintage characters. I have a soft spot for the black cat. Like I said, there’s a funny/cute version and a more gothic set.

There were paper punches too that wer spider webs and blood drips. Too cute.

And look at this glittery fun!

And love the red foil on these. I don’t really buy labels like this, but I think they are really cool.

Look at these cute banners and décor. Love it!

And speaking of blood drops, I think the blood drop is my favorite stencil from this set.

Here’s a little look at more items in the aisle…

Just a heads up, I know this line is available at the Etc. stores, but I’m not so sure if it is at the smaller stores. You may want to call your local store just in case!

Here’s the loot I brought home! Crafty projects to come!!

I hope you enjoy these spooky finds. I’ll be bringing more Scary & On Sale finds I find at various stores at some of my fave places.

Until next time Swellions!


Halloween Sticker Crafts

Everyone loves stickers! How can you not? I created a sheet of them above that you can download and use in your own crafts. Rather than do a specific craft with them, I wanted to share a variety of ways that you can use Halloween stickers to create your own cool crafts! Check them out:

– Add a sticker to the front of a gift bag and accompany it with a funny phrase. For example:

Witch sticker – “For my favorite Witchy Woman”
Ghost sticker – “You’re Boo-tiful, it’s true”
Eyeball – “I only have eye for you”
Candy – “Sweets for my sweet”

– Also use stickers plus a fun phrase for custom party invitations. Mix it up and send everyone a different sticker with a different phrase.

– Add a sticker to a little foldover card and write out a guests name for a custom placecard.

– Scan in stickers or Halloween images and print them out to make magnets, custom iron ons, or labels.

– Stickers can be applied to wooden discs for custom charm bracelets, pendants, and rings. Seal with decopauge medium!

– Also scan and print out stickers for custom shrinky dink designs

– Use stickers for cupcake toppers!

– Personalize mini pumpkins with letter or phrase stickers. Makes a cute little gift too!

Hope these were some inspiring sticker ideas!
