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!

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!ReplyDelete
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...ReplyDelete
This is the best candy dish ever!!! Found you at the Open House Party.
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!ReplyDelete
Great idea, I love it! Hugs, PennyReplyDelete
Oh that is just awesome! Love it!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
