DIY Maid Harness/Belt

Some lovely people have asked how I made my apron-styled harness for my Halloween outfit, so here it is!

Materials and equipment you will need:

  • Measuring tape
  • Pleather - 0.5 x 1.0 metres/yards should be plenty
  • Craft foam - I used 1mm thick foam but you can use thicker foam for a chunkier look
  • Buckles x 3
  • Paper fasteners, or actual rivets x 4
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors - fabric and craft
  • Needle and thread or sewing machine

In this I’ll be using craft foam with fleece-backed pleather to create the look of a thick leather belt. You can use actual belt weight leather strips instead for a more authentic look. Also, the back bow of my harness is a detachable bow from a handbag, but you can make some extra straps and assemble a bow from them yourself.

Halloween Terrarium
I finally made my own little terrarium! I added tiny spooky props because I live and breathe Halloween all year long. It’s simple to create, inexpensive, and adds a lot of character to your living space.

Here’s what you need to make one:

1. Empty glass container
I got mine at the dollar store (bonus points for pumpkin shape!)

2. Small rocks/pebbles to fill the bottom of the container
Pet stores. Mine are left over from my aquarium.

3. Add a layer of charcoal or activated carbon.
I bought a jar from walmart for 3 bucks. This helps maintain the life of the moss.

4. Add a layer of sphagnum moss so the soil won’t travel to the bottom of the container. Purchased this at the dollar store in a bag, it is dried up though.
Wet the moss separately and squeeze to drain the water. Squish the moss almost like a pancake with your hands and cover the entire surface area on top of the pebbles/charcoal.

5. Add a layer of soil.

6. Add your moss! I found mine in my back yard. Moss thrive in damp environments. Check near rocks, trees, pathways, etc. Best to look on a damp day. Just dig and lift with a butter knife or small shovel

6. Decorate your terrarium! This is where you get creative :)
I picked up the gravestones at Michael’s. Part of the Lemax Spookytown collection. The skull was a part of a necklace from the dollar store and the bones were also from the dollar store. I broke off the arms from a skeleton accessory.

Voila! Now you have your own terrarium :)

Make a Skirt out of Pants... Frankenstein's way

Hello big bats of the world!

Surely you know how to slice things up and sew them back again. I’m talking fabric, guys. So, why not put your surgical skills to use and make a real quick skirt?

Grab a:

  • pair of pants or jeans
  • scissors
  • needle and thread
  • pins
  • patches/spikes/fancy ornamentation

Step 1: Cut most of pant legs off as though you were making shorts. Then, cut fabric connecting both legs so as to make a skirt.

Step 2: Pin extra fabric in front of skirt together.

Step 3: Sew extra fabric in back of skirt together.

Step 4: distress edges by gliding scissors over them.

Step 4: add pins, nuts, bolts, anvils and other decorations.

Final step: be fabulous.
