Blog Swap with Mine for the Making!

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I'm thrilled to introduce you to Kara! She is behind one of my favorite craft blogs, Mine for the Making! She's got an amazing Halloween craft to share with you today, so I'll let her take over!

Hey there Kitty Cats & Airplanes readers!!

I'm Kara over at Mine for the Making and I am so excited Amie invited me over today!!
Isn't Amie awesome!? I just love her dinner napkin apron tutorial and her funfetti cookie recipe! She's got some great ideas up her crafty little sleeves!

A little about me? 
I am a mommy and a wife.

I am a teacher and LOVE my job.

Other things I love besides my family and my job are crafting, decorating, finding a good bargain, cooking and baking, reading, blogging, pink, Starbucks, learning to sew, and all things DIY. Here are a few of my favorite projects...









I have lots of fun tutorials over on my blog and I am going to share an easy, Halloweeny one with you today! Let's get started, shall we?

Witch's Broom

You will need:
-A broom of some kind
-Ribbon, buttons, rhinestones, and other embellishments
-Black spray paint
-Hot glue & gun

I purchased my broom from Good Will for $0.50 and used spray paint, ribbon, buttons, and rhinestones that I already had in my craft stash.

First, I spray painted the broom with 2-3 coats of black.

Then I started adding ribbon to embellish. I secured the ribbon with hot glue.





Then I added a few buttons and rhinestones for a little "bling."

Here is the finished Witch's Broom with my Halloween decor.



Thank you so much for having me over today, Amie! I had a ton of fun with Kitty Cats & Airplanes readers! I hope you all stop by Mine for the Making to check out crafty tutorials and delicious recipes! I have a giveaway going on and I would love for you all to enter!

Have a Spooktacular Halloween!

Isn't she so talented? What an amazing upcycle! Be sure to check out her blog because I'm sharing another Halloween craft over there!
