Creepy Closet Monsters

Creepy Closet Monsters

 

 

This is my favorite time of year with my favorite holiday coming up! I love decorating for Halloween! There are soo many fun things you and your family can do to spook up your home simply and inexpensivly with things you have lying around the house. Creepy Closet Monsters are the perfect way to decorate and get some use out of the wire hangers you might have lying around at home. If you like this craft enough you can do this for other holidays and even make some for everyday. Why not make your closet pretty instead of having to buy expensive hangers. You can even reinforce the wire hangers while decorating so they can last longer/hold heavier clothes.

 

 

 

Materials:
Wire Hangers
Construction Paper
Fabric
Ribbons
Stickers
Glitter
Poster Board

Spring Bamboo Clock

Spring Bamboo Clock

Spring Bamboo Clock

Oh how I swoon over the Spring Bamboo Clock! The Bamboo Clock  is spectacularly beautious! I would like to say that is is a little pricey but to be honest it is hand made in the USA, made from bamboo and is under $100. Comparing that to many other eco-living sites that really isn’t bad. The Spring Bamboo Clock literally made me jump for joy when I came across it. I am positive I must have the Bamboo Spring Clock like yesterday! I am pretty sure you know someone who needs it too! It is back to school season after all, maybe a new college student or teacher needs a little gift before the school year gets into full swing? Keeping summery things around helps ease the pain of the realization that summer is coming to a close shortly. That makes everyone a little sad.

About the Spring Bamboo Clock:

This clock emanates the feeling of Spring time and was inspired by Japanese paper cutting art. All images have to be connected in order to allow the laser cutting technique used to cut out the image as a single piece.
Hand made in the USA
The white part is ivory acrylic and it is backed by eco-friendly bamboo to bring out its elegant and intricate design. Clock hands are in chocolate brown. Clock requires one AA battery to operate.
Materials: Bamboo, Acrylic, Clock parts
Made per order, please allow 1-2 weeks to leave the studio.
