Revisiting Last Hallowe'en!!

I have to get myself in the halloween mood! Its now October 4th!  I love to decorate early, because why go through all that work only to pull it down three days later???  But, I just can't get into the fall/Halloween spirit yet!  I don't want to let summer go!  In Canada, Halloween means snowfall the following week!  NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

So, I'm going to pull it out today and start decorating tomorrow.  I thought I'd share some photos of my favourite Halloween transformation/project from last year:  I did a great doll pram transformation last year.  It was the coolest, creepiest candy bowl evah!

This was a dirty, rusty, banged up doll pram I paid $10 for (too expensive for the condition it was in!)at a junk shop last year.  I knew what I would do with it the second I saw it!  Two cans of matte black spray paint later, and voilá!

Add some spooky black lace and a couple of crows and fill with candy!  You can keep it on the porch and hand out your candies dressed as the black widow!  Creepy!!!!  I originally had a small skeleton in it, but the kids just thought it was way too sick! I think I scared them!

Happy Halloween!!!

  1. OMG! I LOVE this! So gothic, Victorian spooky. This is AWESOME! Hey, I would totally do it with the skeleton and place it on the front yard or porch. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I am in love with this!! I have a Pram that my little one is done with - oh if I could bring myself to do this...

    This is the best candy dish ever!!! Found you at the Open House Party.

  3. I have an old doll buggy similar to yours that I had recovered. I wish I had thought of spray paint, because the woman did such a bad job recovering that the buggy is kittywampus now. Love your idea of using the buggy for candy and your photos are great!

  4. Great idea, I love it! Hugs, Penny

  5. Vickie from Ranger911 sent me over to have a look at your awesome doll buggy! What a great idea! I've got my mom's old carriage and don't have the heart to paint it black... but still may be able to creep it up a bit for Halloween. Thanks much for the inspiration!

  6. Thanks so much for sharing this great idea on Simple & Sweet Fridays. I love how the buggy turned out. So creative and perfect for Halloween!



Thanks for taking the time to make a comment, I LOVE hearing from you!
