Hudson Beach Glass Christmas Ornament #2

I am loving the Hudson Beach Glass Co.  I had to make another ornament. This one is my candy cane.

This is a hot place to stand.  My face turns red with in seconds.  I am sensitive to heat. But it is worth it.

Blow harder it is taking shape.

This is the first one I made two weeks ago.
I am hooked. I might have to go again.

The Magic Santa Key

Nothing says Christmas like a Magic Santa Key.  I made a new Key this year.  I found a bigger key this fall at a Flea market that had a KL on it.  I believe it stand for "Kringle Locks".  Do like how I did that? Wouldn't that be cool if that were a real company and this was a key from the "Kringle Locks Co.

We move a lot and never have a fire place so this is a important part of Christmas for my kids. 

So here is the old key and the new key.  A much needed improvement. 

On a side note I put up my Christmas lights today.  he he he I know it is only November 12. **update** it is November 19th, It is 20 degrees and I am not ashamed that I put my lights up a week ago.  ****

My Blown Glass Christmas Ornament

We have this awesome place here in the Hudson Valley.  It is called Hudson Beach Glass Co.  They will let you make your own Christmas Ornament.  On my birthday I made this beauty.  I want to make a second one in red and white, to look like a candy cane.  Let the hot air begin.

I love my skeletons.  They make the best Halloween decorations! I love the one on top laughing at the other two trying to get on the roof.

I will say.  The one skeleton standing on the railing is a better looking skeleton than the other two.  I got that one at target last year.  The other two I got at Walmart this year and they are not as detail.  
More out door decorations to come.
Happy Halloween

Maleficent horns

It is costume time again. My daughter wants to be Maleficent.  I made these horns out of card board.
I used black Duck Tape to make the head piece.  I love that you can make almost anything out of Duck tape.

I still need to make it so it will stay on her head.  I figure grommets, Velcro and  ribbon should do the trick.
But I came home yesterday with feather wings and a black wedding dress costume for her to finish the look and she said, "I like the dress maybe I will just wear the dress".  Kids!  
Maybe if I make a cool staff she will wear the whole costume.
Wish me luck!

Halloween decorations that I have started to make for 2014

I love this time a year.  Pinterest has so many great ideas.  I started making some of the decoration I saw on pinterest. I have so many that I am wanting to make I had to start now so I could be done by Oct 1st.  
I made this paper mache pumpkin last year but was afraid to paint it.  Well I got over my fears and did it.  I need to seal it before it can go out side but it turned out so scary.

These foam signs will hang on a tree branch light pole that I have not finished yet.

And last my scary drippy candles made from PVC 
These are so awesome.  I am looking for more projects to start on, for the next few weeks.  
Happy Halloween!!
