Skull Candle Holders

PotteryBarnVotives12[3]

This year Pottery Barn has some fabulous skull votive holders in their Halloween décor line. Problem is the price tag…they’re $9.50 each! Fortunately, Monica of Monica Wants It has a DIY version that is super easy and inexpensive. Plus, Monica’s votives go beyond the basic black with pretty damask and Moroccan patterns. Who says skulls can’t be stylish {wink}?

Upholstered Burlap Chair

Kenz of Interiors by Kenz dreamed of having a grand upholstered chair like one from Restoration Hardware as an accent in her basement, no other chair would do. She worked some of her Cinderella magic to transform a wicker chair from the thrift store into a fancy burlap upholstered chair with nailhead trim and a grey-washed finish. Would you believe Kenz reupholstered the whole chair with just a hot glue gun???

Framed Script Art

Sonny from 155 Dream Lane had to look twice when she came across a framed farm log from Williams-Sonoma that cost over $1,000. The kicker is that it’s just a print! Craziness. Instead of dropping a mortgage payment, Sonny grabbed a frame from her yard sale stash and some script wrapping paper she had and made a similar piece of artwork. With all the pretty papers out there, what a great idea to turn them into wall art!

Skull Vases

Danielle from My EnRoute Life didn’t let the fact that Pottery Barn’s ceramic skull vases are no longer available ruin her Halloween fun. No siree… not when she could make two decorative vases for only $13. You may be able to work that price down too if you’ve got some vases on hand you don’t mind refabbing.  The creepy faces really steal the show in Danielle’s Halloween vignette!

Driftwood Wall Organizers

Susan from Homeroad created her own wall organization system from weathered driftwood and old metal calendars. One calendar became a chalkboard and the other a chicken wire clipboard. I love the rustic look Susan achieved with her repurposed materials, and the wire hooks that link them together are too cute!

Rustic Wood Sideboard and Hutch

The Shanty 2 Chic sisters never cease to amaze me with their amazing building skills. With the help of Ana White, Whitney recently tackled her largest project to date – a RH inspired sideboard with hutch. It goes without saying that a piece like this is pricey, so what a blessing to be able to build it yourself and save some serious cash. I love that there is hidden storage to hide away extra napkins, table runners, and the like and then the open hutch for displaying all your pretties.

Burlap Leaf Pillow

Colleen from Mural Maker and More saw a darling oak leaf pillow floating around Pinterest and pinned it with the intent of hand painting it one day. Instead, she found a felt leaf from the dollar store that was perfect for creating a reverse stencil leaf print on some burlap. In under five minutes, Colleen got a fresh pop of color on her porch and never even broke out the sewing machine.

Metal Wall Art

We have seen projects aplenty for creating wooden wall signs, but how about giving metal a try? Morena from Morena’s Corner shares at Crafts Unleashed how she was inspired to make a couple of pieces of metal wall art from inexpensive rusted metal sheets. Here’s from Morena: “I have a passion for all things retro, especially metal wall art.  Originals are pricey, and reproductions can get expensive, too. Why not make your own?”
