I created this Halloween Hounds-tooth Wreath by wrapping a grapevine wreath with black ribbon. I then used purple velvet ribbon and black and white hounds-tooth ribbon cut on an angle and glued them to the bottom. For the skulls I used the top of plastic rings that I found at the dollar store and spray painted them black and white. I added more ribbon at the top to hang it from and now I have it to enjoy for this,  my favorite holiday.

Happy crafting xoxo. Follow me on Twitter I am Lab5 and on the Lovely Lula Facebook Page.


The gifts are all wrapped, the stockings await the stuffing I declare it to be time to settle in for a sip of spiked eggnog. Yum! See some of my gift wrapping favorites, crafty style. I used everything from newspaper to school writing paper, paper table cloth, legal ledger paper, contact paper and wall paper. I stamped many of them with rubber stamps and ink. The bows vary from ribbon to tinsel to chair canning and bakers twine.


Tonight I am doing a YUDU workshop at MADE with Sarah of 26-Letters. I made this great inspiration board by spray painting a piece of masonite black, drilling two holes at the top, screen printing it with white patterns and then adding ribbon, rubber bands, cork, magnet and clips. Want to learn how? Join me at the workshop.


It’s October and that means Halloween fun! To get ready for this, my favorite season, I made a decorative basket to fill with candy for the upcoming trick-or-treaters. While I await their arrival I will decorate my home with this fun Halloween home decor project. To make this you’ll want to first pick up a plastic bucket or basket at your local craft store. Next, using your Cricut and your Gypsy create a Halloween design of your choice from any of the many Halloween Cartridges such as Mini Monsters, Happy Hauntings or October 31st Seasonal. Cut your design out using purple, orange, green and black vinyl. Tack down to your bucket and rub with a bone folder to stick it in place. For a finish look wrap the handle with a gross-grain ribbon. Happy Halloween Crafting xoxo Lovely Lula


With all the scraps that have been laying around my studio table I decided to whip up a few cards. It has been a while since I have just sat down and made cards. It actually felt pretty good. Having a greeting card company with a high production rate kind of turns you off from making cards ever again just for fun. I am so glad I did though because it was really a good time!
