I made this really cool jar for my daughter. She loves the Munsters as do I. I hope she likes it! And I hope you do too!

I was shopping at Michaels the other day and came across a really neat paper crafting Halloween party pack by My Minds Eye, marked down to under ten bucks. I had to have it and I have been cutting, cutting, cutting and glueing all the neat party items. I made the witches party hats and put two on my mantel. I also made the banners, one is here also. I think they are really neat:)

This is my entry into Lisa Kettells Blog Hop Contest! You can enter too by going to http://www.Faerieenchantment.blogspot.com.Thanks to my super talented and crafty mother, I made this amazing cat character. It was her idea to make homemade paper clay and make something cool from it. She made a pumpkin, and it is REALLY neat ( I will get a picture and post later). I'm pretty proud of this cat. It is the first paper clay character I have ever made using an armature. I hadn't even made an armature before this. It was so fun! I have pictures to show you from the beginning to the finished character.

I wanted to share one of my favorite decorations this year. I simply tied orange and black netting ribbon to a green ivy that I already had draped over my mirror. Then I hung a few felt cat and pumpkin heads from it (I made these ten years or so ago). A already had a bag of Pom Pom spiders in my stash and I attached them here and there all over the netting. I think it looks spooky.
My Mothers idea...to decorate a Halloween shaker box on a wand. She provided me with the box and wand, I painted and decorated it...vintage style.
I don't know if you can see it or not but there is orange Pom Pom trim around the bottom of the box. Also a bit of orange velvet trim around the top edge of the box. It matches the paint color so well you can't see it in the photos.
Here is an updated picture of my shaker. I added stripes to the wand and a base to stand it up. All my Mothers idea:)
I had a little paper clay left over from making my black cat so I made a few more ornaments for my tree. First I made an armature for my pumpkin face ornament using a styrofoam ball and then just made the witch hat using card stock. I covered the ball with paper clay and let it dry before I covered the hat so I would have something solid to hold on to while forming around the hat. I gave the pumpkin head a Tim Burton style face!
