I love making these little Centrepieces!  Most of the materials can be found at the Dollar store.  The tree, glass jar, shiny presents, the red foam and the Santas are from Dollarama Canada. The base is a scrap piece of basswood but you could use cardboard. The striped present and the plate are made from scrapbook paper and the cookies and candy are Fimo brand polymer clay

Hocus Pocus OOAK Sarah Sanderson Barbie

I attempted to do a custom Barbie this month.  My cousin loves Halloween and #hocuspocus so I redid this #mtm doll to look like #sarahsanderson    I used a mix of vintage doll clothes and fabric that belonged to our grandmother for her clothes.  I had so much fun doing this that I can't wait to do another ( I really want to do Laverne and Shirley)
