This week’s blog post is a roundup of all the crafts I’ve DIYed from the past two October Outfits projects.
I am obsessed with upcycling as I’ve spent my entire life trying to create something better from what I’ve got.
Heather Donahue from The Blair Witch Project
Created some stick figures from branches in my yard and hemp or kitchen twine.
Carrie White from Carrie
Dried White Snakeroot and a pink ribbon became my prom bouquet.
Gretchen Wieners, Cady Heron, and Regina George from Mean Girls
A pink photo album I have owned for decades with the Burn Book font letters and lips taped to the front.
Grace Stewart from The Others
Some keys and key charms on a bangle bracelet are a keyring.
Sally Owens & Gillian Owens from Practical Magic
A random note inside an envelope with a bee-shaped golden wax stamp to close the letter.
The GraveRobber from Repo! The Genetic Opera
Blue curacao inside a vial that previously held medicine for my cat to be a vial of Zydrate.
Stokely Mitchell from The Faculty
A blue pen with actual pen insides removed and replaced with baking powder to be a dose of a drug called scat.
The Other Mother from Coraline
Buttons from my sewing stash with some tape to adhere temporarily to my eyes for the photo shoot.
Smaller buttons from my sewing stash are taped into a jewelry box to be the ones that The Other Mother offers Coraline.
The Mayor from The Nightmare Before Christmas
The items used to create the Mayor ribbon.
Whipped together this staff from a tiki torch, tennis ball, yarn, and some packing paper.
Cassandra “Cassie” Thomas from Promising Young Woman
Created some pages from Cassie’s journal in one of my own with blue, black, and red pens to make the tally marks.
All of these crafts were created specifically for my October Outfits projects. Although, some of these props are just items that already existed altered to fit my purposes. Most of them I pulled together last minute because that’s just how it always ends up. 😇
Catch me back here next week for another post.
