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. 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!

  5. 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!
