The Unveil...A Halloween Tree Of My Very Own

Halloween Tree
Originally uploaded by Kitsch N Sink Studio

And Here it is!!..
the thrifted 2 dollar Christmas tree from Good-Will, painted black for Halloween.
I'm really so excited!!!..I've always wanted one, and budgets being what they are, a purchase wasn't possible..So I put all else aside, and set out to make my own.. (something I rarely do.).
I had been working on it in between my work schedule for the last couple months, making all the ornaments myself.
I still have a few more ornaments to finish, but
I couldn't be more pleased with the way it turned out.
I now have something I'll look forward to adding to every year.;-)

Another Tassel Doll..Pumpkin Halloween Ball Gal

This is my latest ornament for my Halloween tree..
I didn't have much time, as today is my only day off this
week, so I didn't go into as much detail as the tassel doll we
Learned in the Hive Class from Patrick of Cre8tor's Touch.
The tassel was purchased at my local antique shop for
only a dollar, and it just said pumpkin gal to me!
So, I just sculpted a simple head and shoulder plate,
and wrapped a single chenille stem around the neck post
to extend for both arms..then the head and arms were glued
right into the center hole of the tassel. Then I added legs to the underside bell of the tassel... added leafy bits for
hands, more trims and cut-outs for embellishments. and pine petals for her shoes.
I think she turned out right cute! ;-)..and I thank Patrick of Creator's Touch again for the original idea..I've been having lots of fun with these.

The last couple days I've been home sick ,(allergies..achoo!!

I'm so excited to finally have one,(in a earlier post, I talk about the
2 dollar Christmas tree from Good-Will that I painted black) and have been working hard to get it filled with handmade ornaments in time..

season from some of my favorite artists..So be looking out for me! ;-)

The "Ayes" Have It!....

Kitsch'N Sink mistakes are not too horribly bad..
This was meant to be a Finial Christmas ornament..but
whoops..burnt it to a fritter while It was drying..
So I scrapped the original plan, and here we have
"Vlad", the blood sucking spider with all the paint,
He still smells like burnt marshmallows!..;-D

Oh and a final note to Hive readers..I cannot express my appreciation
for all the comments..I really enjoy reading them..However..Come to find's my 10 yr old comp. that is preventing me from responding!!..Seems it's not compatible with the message board...My son tested my page on I know it's definitely time for a new please bear w/ me! ;-)

Vintage-Style Hanging Halloween Owl..

Let the pendulum swing back to Halloween Goodies!.
This is the 3rd in my series of Mache sculpted Treat cones.

things that I create...."Cone-heads" perhaps?... Perhaps Not!!..;-D
still thinking on that one. ;-)
I have lots more goodies in various stages of progress..I am so happy
to have all this time off for the Labor Day Holiday..Hoping to have
lots more progress pics over the long weekend..
