My version of a "Boo Queen"

So last year I finally came around to decorating my home for Halloween. And Oh how I love it! I think the whole Vintage Halloween took me in like so many others:-) That is why I actually like it now:-) Its Classic. Its even kind of Mystical & 
And so I fell in love with Bethany Lowes Halloween creations. I came across her pieces once {over a year ago} in a small boutique in Midway Utah. SOOO darling! I have a few of my favorites, and I oh so wanted them in my home, but there is no way I could possibly afford or justify buying a $75 doll!  I knew instantly that I wanted to make my own version of them. So with that said, here is my first of 3 creations that I want to recreate for my own Halloween decor:-)  Finally a year later I got to this project. I have to admit it kind of intimidated me, hence why it took me so long to do. But I actually was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this, and how easy it was! Mind you this was made with things I had laying around my it cost me 2-3 hours & $0 to make! :-)

My inspiration:

Bethany Lowes Boo Queen 
{kim kohler is part of her design team. She makes some pretty creepy stuff, this one being the less of the creepy ones}


I made my own pattern. Sewed than stuffed the body. Added some clothes {with the glue gun}. Finished her off with a trick or treat scepter and than a boo crown.

I decided to keep her all black and white, to go with the theme of my decor. 
My Halloween colors are black and white, with a dash of orange.

She does need some black glitter though...I went hunting for that this morning, with no luck. Think I will have to hit up Michael's later this week.

So there you have it, my first of 3 ! Stay tuned for my next creation {Simply Miss Pumpkin}. 
Oh and a funny story, my little 18 month old boy, who only can say perhaps 2 words thinks this doll is gross. I know this, because he makes a "yukchhh" noise every time he sees it! {the same noise he makes when he spits something out of his mouth he doesn't like},lol!!! My little 4 year old daughter thinks it is a pretty Halloween Queen.:) lol! Well at least I know she is "pretty-creepy"!
I seriously cannot stop laughing every time my boy makes that sound!

A Harvest Wreath

I dont have a Fall wreath that can stand the Elements. So I made this one:-) 
Mostly from things I had lying around the house. 
{p.s. dont mind my beautiful door...we are not home owners, so our current living status is a "manager on site" place....yup...hence the "Private" door}. 
I hate it....oh well....our time for Homeownership WILL come:-)

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Banner {Happy to welcome this season}!

I love Autumn!! 
 Only thing is that most of my decor is Halloween inspired, so I am working on adding more "Fall" things to my collection. The house looks so bare in between Halloween and Christmas, so I will be working on a few projects that can stay up thru all of Fall.
And to start it all out, is my home made Fall banner. 
So simple....
Burlap, Jute and a black marker....
Here it is.

A little Witch silhouette peeking behind the banner...

This little guy is one of my FAVORITE Halloween decorations from last year...
....Love me some White Pumpkins!
