Below you find links to tutorials for making some of the vintage inspired decorations seen in the slideshow.  Most were made on the cheap -- with supplies purchased from the dollar store.

Click HERE for a tutorial for making this glittering Skeleton Crew from dollar store supplies. This year I mounted the skulls on glass candlesticks from the dollar store.

Click HERE for a tutorial on how to make this Family Tree wreath. Plus, you'll find a free download for the vintage photo mattes.
These little skeletons from the Dollar Tree can be posed fairly easily and look pretty cute in their party hats.

For a tutorial on making the Black Bird Blocks, click HERE. The tutorial for making the folk art pumpkins is HERE. Both projects use supplies from the dollar store.
