I Got {Twiggy} With it...

Here ,in Oklahoma, we have our far number of ice storms. Leaving this great state with lots of this...
So last night I had the kiddos go hunting for me some twigs and I think they did a great job. I used the cheapest black spray paint I could find {.96 cents a can at Walmart} because these sticks sucked it all right up.

We placed a few at the front door. I put a vase of them in the entry way and stuffed the base with hay.
And I plan on putting more around outside with spooky cobwebs for a Halloween party we are throwing later this month.
I picked up these two cheap little goodies at Goodwill this week. And really would love to get my hands on some more of those candle sticks! If I remember right I got them both for $4.25. After my trusty black spray paint got hold of them they turned out pretty cute.

Yes, I have sunk to a new low and glitter dotted my real life pumpkins. Someone really needs to take my glitter bottles away. Maybe I need to think about donating them to my sons Pre-K class {smile}!

All I did for the pumpkins was take a little black deco paint, paint dopers and dot all around my pumpkins. Then I just sprinkled my super fine Martha glitter on the wet paint.

Stop by Tip Junkie to check out some other great ideas!


  1. I love all things Halloween. Those polka-dot pumpkins are too cute; I just may have to give them a try. I’m now wising I would have bought that large candle stick at Goodwill today. It would have looked great next to the fire place with a fun polka-dot pumpkin resting in it. Oh and I love the glittered skull on your table.
    Thought I would let ya know I’ve I just did a day long Halloween Extravaganza over at my blog. I posted Halloween themed blogs several times throughout the day to celebrate October 1st. Tons of Halloween goodness to look at if your interested :0)
    Hope you’re having a great Friday!
