With as many supplies that I have, I can't think of a thing to make. Now that is weird.!!!
But Ill try to come up with something. Can it be something we've made before.?


Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you always know they're there.

Count me in. I don't really do Halloween but sounds like something fun to me. Different. I'll see what I can come up with. Thanks GourdSilly for starting this. Sound fun and looking forward to seeing what everyone does.

Oh I love what you all have come up with. Your gourd ghost NICE! Wreath wow! Is your kitty made out of pipe cleaners? Made me smile. Talent is just so cool on here.

In my little corner of the world the colours are peaked and just starting to go. One good wind storm and it's going to look bla out there. I'm going to enjoy this for as long as I can.

I love all three of those! I would love to know where you can find a gourd that shape for the ghost. I am in the process of making some Halloween gifts for a friend of mine. I have made one or two things for mom and I, but we don't realy celebrate Halloween. Can you believe that we do not get any trick or treaters at all? These projects are great. I cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Hi Nicole, glad you like the ghost. We never get trick or treaters either now that our grands are grown but that doesn't stop me from decorating for the inner child in me ha ha I also make treat bags --just in case-- even though hubby and I usually have to eat them later --what a chore ha.
I grew my gourd but I know they have paper mache ones in the craft stores but don't know if they are expensive or not and also you can find them in farmers markets to buy You might google or see if you can find a place that sells them but I think a farmers market is the best bet. Maybe someone here can help you.

hey all, i'm so sorry that I went MIA... For what ever reason i cannot reply to anything off my phone to here... really frustrated.

nice crafts going on, love the snowman, wreath, center table decor, and that cat.. it would have been prefect for the corn stalks my sister and i worked on... We have a craft fair this weekend coming up... i haven't did a CF in yrs...

So, my first pic is something old i still have on my shelf...my evolution into junkola... lol

i kept the tiny spider web, just kinda adds to the spirit.

thanks for the comments... craft fair report... only sold one scarecrow... so today thwey go out on my lawn to try to sell them with the left over pumpkins... which we sold a bunch... We sold 30.00 dollars of face pumpkins... one of the biggest seller, no lie, we sold the 3/$1.00 and the smaller 4/&1.00 gourds that we brought at the last minutes. they don't stand, they're bumpy, so no painting on them.... think it was close to 60.00 worth...! go figure... all in all a grand total of 160.00. we only paid for one booth, we had two... $30.00.,

So, i ask... who's going to start the NEXT CRAFT CHALLENGE?
