What I Made in October, 2013

October 31, 2013Allison Murray

Why hello there, reader. October has come to a close I’ve compiled everything I’ve made with my own two hands. It would appear I’ve been crazy busy. And ridiculously into Halloween. So crazy that I already have three posts written and scheduled for October 2014. Mwah hahaha.

Painted Skeleton Feet Shoes Tutorial - at Dream a Little Bigger!

My favorite project this past month: I painted the bones of my feet on some shoes and got TONS of compliments on them!

5. I made Silhouette sketch and cut files for zombie walker finger puppets. Took forevah.

6. I made a list of Kumihimo tips and tricks. More on the way…

7. I made a beaded bobble ring. Because I like big rings, son.

8. I made little letter pinatas for Halloween. Second post at iLoveToCreate – heck yeah!

9. I stitched up some jack-o’-lanterns. My mom loved it so it’s a win in my book.

10. I made a Facebook like box and showed you how, too. People are a likin’ it.

11. I frosted my bathroom window on the cheap. I pee easier, now.

12. I used Shape Tape to awesome up my bathroom. It’s really freaking cool.

13. I painted skeletons on my window. The neighbors stared. Let ’em stare.

14. I made string art on a pumpkin. Used almost 1,000 nails.

15. I made ghosts out of trash bags. They’re kind of a weird family tradition.

16. I tried out my Kumihimo bobbins. Turns out they’re crazy helpful.

17. I made a rat’s nest Halloween wreath. Using my own fears against myself.

18. I made a super sweet felt raccoon mask. It was featured at Apartment Therapy!!!

20. I made creepy, glowing eyes staring out my windows. My house freaks people out.

21. I made Halloween treat bags in a kid’s DIY. ‘Cause no adult likes decorating a zillion of these themselves the night before.

22. I made some Day of the Dead sugar skull shoes. First guest post at Pink Stripey Socks!

23. I etched a mirror with the new Silhouette glass etching kit. Seriously, though. You do look fine.
