five friday favorites: halloween movies!
(in no particular order)

"hocus pocus"
i know, i know...a cheesy disney movie? really? i don't care, i LOVE this movie. i always watch it whenever it comes on tv around halloween. i think sarah jessica parker and the zombie ex-boyfriend are pretty funny.


you can't make a halloween movie list without a tim burton movie. everyone is so perfectly cast, love this movie.

"edward scissorhands " my favorite halloween movie, and one of my favorite movies of all time. everything is so perfect about this movie, it makes me cry.

"it's the great pumpkin, charlie brown"
a classic. it wouldn't be halloween without it. i love when sally gets sooo mad at linus for making her stay to watch "the great pumpkin" and missing out on trick or treating. sorry, that was a spoiler.

"the witches"
this movie scared me as a kid, too. i mean, they KILL kids. or put them in paintings. that part always gave me creeps. and angelica huston's witch makeup at the end?! holy scary.

hope y'all have a happy halloween!

tutorial tuesday: bling your pumpkin

love this idea. would be perfect to carry over to thanksgiving, too. there's not really a tutorial for this, but i imagine you would just take a pen and trace a spiderweb (like in the first picture) or some swirls (like in the second picture) and then use a hot glue gun to attach the rhinestones. you can find rhinestones like these at any craft store, or even wal-mart. so fun!

(p.s. don't wanna waste all those fancy jewels when the pumpkin goes bad? decorate a fake pumpkin instead - again, can be purchased at any craft store or some place like wal-mart - and bring it out to enjoy every year.)

tutorial tuesday: record sleeve masks!

i thought this tutorial was hilarious. i see tons of old records at the thrift store whenever i go and this would be a perfect costume for an adult halloween party...or, ya know, taking your kid to the park. because THAT wouldn't be creepy at all...haha

thanks seablanket for this cheap and easy halloween tutorial!

tutorial tuesday: candy corn wreath

i don't know why i love this wreath so much, i just think it's so clever. all those candy corns lined up together just looks awesome. i think i might choose to do a different flower accent, maybe some kind of felt flower because i'm obsessed with felt. and i love how the twine loops around the top of the wreath rather than being tied to the back, makes it more secure, too.

ok enough of my opinions. click here for the tutorial.

love maya rudolph.

she's one of my favorite snl peeps. i about peed my pants when i first saw this, she is so dead on with all those over the top national anthem singers. i read an interview where she said she was inspired for this after she watched a montage of american idol auditions and they were singing "take me out to the ballgame" and one girl was all "buy me some ee-nuts and apple jacks..." haha.

tutorial tuesday: felt embroidered hoop

if you can cut felt and sew a straight stitch, then you can do this. i love all those little flowers, but now that the holidays are coming cute would be a big ol' jack o'lantern be? or a christmas tree with different bright ornaments? i'm itching to try one of these.

go to the tutorial from sew mama sew.
