The Easiest Hallowe'en Craft Going!

Here are Maeve and I happily going about our household chores. ~

Okay, so it's not really me (unless you're talking to my ex husband LOL).  I may be a witch but I NEVER go happily about household chores!  It's a vintage print that caught my eye at The Graphics Fairy.

I started playing around with it on Picmonkey and added some witchy words in a spooky script. ~

I printed it out in an 8 X 10 size.  It still needed a little something and I sprayed it with glue and added glitter. Doesn't everything look better with glitter on it? ~

I popped it in a document frame.  I have a stack of these that held decorating awards in my office and no idea what to do with them all.

A couple of Egyptian cats that I picked up at an antique store for $6 and a crystal ball and I've a little Hallowe'en display for the bookcases. ~

Just above my sorceress is a glittery spider crawling down an antique, leather bound copy of Edgar Allen Poe's poetry. ~

Add some Martha Stewart crows and Poe, himself, would be trembling at this awesomely scary display! ~

This was ridiculously easy, but if you don't want to go to the bother of doing it yourself, click on the printable of the altered witch and print her out.  Done!

Now, how easy was that!

I admit I do sissy Hallowe'en decorating!

  14. Hey you are so funny! You know I am craft challenged but I think I could actually do this craft. Thanks for sharing it. I have a sign on the door that says, "If the shoe fits." It is printed on some witch boots. I am sure my family might agree that applies to me at times. Hey life is hard at times for us women. Can't be sunshine and sweet all the time right?
