Halloween-y Feelin'

Funky Junk's Saturday Nite Special
Join  us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up          party!

I linked to Funky Junk Interiors Saturday Night Special & Tatertots & Jello's weekend wrap-up party. Head over & join the fun!

Maybe it is that I am anxiously awaiting cooler weather, but I've got that Halloween feeling this week.  Crazy I know.  It is over a month away.  But just barely!

Overwhelmed by the sweet aroma of Candy Corn in Target yesterday, I couldn't resist picking up a few bags.  You can do so many things with candy corn, outside of the obvious...eating it!

Like this!  These topiary jars are fairly expensive at craft stores, but I found this one for $5.99 at Marshall's.  The glass lid doesn't fit exactly perfect, but you can't beat the price.

I made a tag for it out of scraps in my craft closet, after seeing an idea from Shelley Smith at House of Smith's

Target also has some great little spiders in the Dollar Bins. I picked up a few to fill another topiary I already had at home.  Here is a tip I have found through trial and error, fill your jar with something cheap like rocks or glass marbles to fill up some space in the bottom. 

Like this! 

Group it with a few other things and you have an inexpensive Halloween-y centerpiece for any room!
