Halloween Propping

I’m so glad you guys like the fabric-covered journals!
Last week I was hired to create props for an thrift store chain’s upcoming photo shoot for Halloween (more details will come on all this later). All the crafts had to be recycled, using items from their store, inexpensive, easy, no-sew or low-sew, and family friendly (doable for kids, adults, and teens). All this felt like a surprisingly small order when I actually got down to task and started making up the projects. I really had a lot of fun putting this all together.
I snapped a couple of shots as I was unpacking all the items at the photography studio, where they will be living for now. The actual shoot will not take place for a week or so, and there will be more professional photos in the pipeline.
I will point you to all this when it is up online on the client’s site, closer to Halloween of course. There will be how-to’s for all the projects I did. These are all totally doable, and fun to make. Trust me, you’ll want to have a Halloween party I do! and I don’t really even like Halloween!

    These are all incredible projects! Each one feels super doable, but completely fresh. Silhouettes with creepy embellishments… how ingenious! I’ll be getting some black spray paint come next October. Can’t wait to see more, Blair! p.s. I loved your journals, too.

    i love black spray paint! all the crafts look fantastic. i think i will start collecting all those different animals now.
    and i think offering sponsorship is a good idea. i would imagine that it would pay for itself for anyone who chooses to sponsor you.
