Halloween Parade with Laurel Grove Wiccan Circle

 Hi Blogland! I wanted to share with you some wickedly awesome fun your favorite Witch had the other night. I was invited by the wonderful witchy folk of the Laurel Grove Wiccan Circle to walk with them in Uniontown's Halloween parade. This Witch had oodles of fun hanging out with the Laurel Grove group.




 Charles & Kathryn are some of the nicest people you ever wanna meet. I was so happy they invited me to participate.






Here is yours truly & Charles hamming it up.






I do not remember everyone's names but hope to become better acquainted with them. (I am so horrible with names most times that I call all three of my children "Hey You" or "Whats your face")





Look closely, she is holding a snake! He was so sweet & lovable.

I am serious, he really was!  Although it was fun to see peoples reactions along the route & while waiting to start when they realized that it was a real live snake!
(gotta have fun with it.....right?)





The banner we walked behind.





The school band behind us while waiting for the parade to start was practicing The Addams Family theme song. We really enjoyed that!







Wickedly cool decorated yard next to where we lined up.










I had to stop & snap a shot of this house along the parade route (left side)

It was dark when the parade was over. Resting a bit to begin the walk back home & to cars.  The Laurel Wiccan Grove group has invited me to join in on their Samhain ritual this year also. Fingers are crossed that my work schedule allows me to attend!









Thanks again to Kathryn Goodwin Jones, Charles Bittner & the rest of the Coven for making me feel welcome in my new home town.

Laurel Grove Wiccan Circle.......you rock!



Blessed Be & a Wickedly Awesome Samhain to all!

Wickedly Crafty Saturdays (10/15/11)







 Hey Blogland. So very sorry once again for life interfering with my blog. I so detest when that happens. Quick update: the police still have so suspect in the murder of John Curtis Smith. This Wickedly Crafty Saturdays is dedicated to him.


 I want to thank those of you who participated in the last Wickedly Crafty Saturdays here at Wiccan Make Some Too. I love all the links & those who share their links. 

First up, the favorites from last time







Visitors to Wiccan Make Some Too & myself all loved this R2D2 cake from Tales of a Trophy Wife





Another favorite was this Zombi Dress by MJ over at My busy craft life



 Wickedly awesome pose MJ!





Now our most clicked link was the link supplied by Kim from Maiden D'Shade






Aren't these luminaries just to die for? So cute & easy to create with her tutorial. 




Grab a featured button you guys & get ready to link up some more wickedly creative stuff.
As for the rest of you....what are you waiting for people? It's a party....link up!










 





Faux Wood Boards





 Hey Blogland! Need a cheap way to get your house looking scary this Halloween? Well, I will show you how to make faux wood boards to "board" up your windows! All you need Kiddies is some cardboard & some brown tempura paint & something to apply the paint with.





 This stuff I have had for over five years at least....but hey, it still worked!

I used a large (dry) paint brush to apply my undercoat of paint







It is important to go back & forth with the paint & not just go crazy with the brush. Keeping your strokes going one way is how you create the "wood grain"







Next add random strokes of paint for more wood texture. You can also dot some paint & then lightly brush over it. Remember to keep your strokes going one way! Some you can angle slightly for a more natural look.







This section above had a packing label on it & the top layer of cardboard peel off with the label. I used it anyway cause I liked the marred look it gave my piece of wood.







Here are two pieces of my "wood" drying. For house windows you only need to paint one side of the cardboard. I did some for my work place & painted both sides since customers will see it from inside the store as well as outside.









 In the above shot I used the end of my brush to create the wood "knot".  I dipped the end of the brush in the paint & lightly dabbed off the excess then placed the brush flat on the cardboard & twisted it in a circle. Lift the brush & like magick...... a knot in your wood!



Smaller sections of cardboard can be used to make signs





Such as this "Danger" sign







And this "Beware" sign I have on my front door





Once your "wood" pieces have dried, grab a hammer & nails or a staple gun & make your house look "boarded up"!













There you have it Blogland! Faux wood.

Hey, it's Halloween time....have fun with it!

Cardboard Haunted House






 Morning Blogland. I have returned with a Halloween decoration that is easy as all get out to create. All you need is some cardboard & a can of spray paint.



 The cardboard is very forgiving if you are spray painting over it as you will see in the pic below. Draw your pattern on the cardboard & if you make a booboo, not to worry as you will be painting over the bad stuff.






Here I have my pattern drawn out








My mistakes are circled but once the pattern is cut out & painted.....nobody but us has to know!







The sun is glaring on it a bit but this turned out pretty awesome. It is going to work to be put up in the window so I painted both sides.





(The close up shot again)




Have fun with your cardboard people! 

Nest I will show you how to create faux wood on your cardboard......so stay tuned.
