Bats & Spiders oh my.....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! Whew! What a crazy week and
weekend! I thought when it started to get cold outside that it would
slow down at the store a little (Donation wise) but NOOOOO! I get
buried every week! It's good but also bad... cuz I work more hours and
no time to craft! :o( Any whoo.... I'm here right now so I thought I would
show you something I made to decorate my Thrift Store with! :o)
Last year I put up those "GEL" holiday decorations...
Well... Let me tell ya.... they SUCK! Really!
I went to put them up this year and they are gooey.... YUCK
And some little boy tried to eat one! UGH! Soooo
Down they came and I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up
these crafty wood pieces.... they were $3.99 each but then they
had 40% off all the holiday stuff! SCORE! :o)

So, here I proceeded to paint them.... Different colors to
kind of match the paper I was gonna use on one side....
I also added some Glimmer Mist in a similar color to
add glitter to the side that was plain....

Here's the first one.... I did add RED Gems for the eyes....

And another... using the ribbon it already came with!

Here's a cool Bat too..... added red gems to the eyes
on both sides of course.... since they will hang in
the windows at my store..... you'll get a different look
which ever side is showing inside or out! :o)

Some fun zig zag paper from Echo Park!

And the last one.... I really like how they all turned out!
And I can use these year after year and not have to worry
about them being gooey or a kid eating them! LOL

I made a banner too! I forgot to take a picture of it.... maybe this
week I'll take a picture through the window! :o)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have an

These are fabulous Theresa. Love all of the different papers you used. I bet they will be a hit with the kids. They might not try to eat them, but they may want Momma to buy them!! :)

Very cool bats and spider, Theresa. Love the papers. Bet they really look cute hanging in the windows.
Glad all is going well.

I wonder if the little guy thought your gooey decorations were made of the same candy as gummy bears?! Too funny!

Your decorations look great! How fun to dress your store up!
