No Fly Zone

On Monday, some friends came over and we made our seasonal “door decor” for Halloween. I got the idea for this one after seeing something similiar at Michaels. But ours turned out SO much cuter! (and cheaper) We used materials I had on hand: raffia, dowels, wire, ribbon, mod podge, etc and one of those free paint stir sticks you get when you buy paint, for the lettering. (do I get repurposing points for that?:)

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    I love your creativity!! I looked at that and tried to figure out what you used before I read your post and was totally taken by surprise that it's raffia and a painting stick. You for sure get extra points for that baby. I love it!! It's adorable!! Did you just spray it with spray paint? I'm going to have to try it!! Thanks for the great idea!

    This turned out so darn cute! Love the idea of using a paint stick for the lettering. I'll have to get me some of those. :)

    I love this. I have been looking for a witch's broom craft. I have an old decorative broom I bought for 99 cents at Salvation Army. I wanted to Halloween-it up.
