The Art of Darkness

Stuff I Found While Looking Around

January 28th, 2015 by Cobwebs

It’s time for another bunch of random stuff that I want to share but can’t hang a whole post on. As a pleasant change, I’ve actually got attributions for all of the images this time. Yay.

13th Floor Sign

13th Floor Sign

The fabulous Dead Spider posted this on her site without comment. It would be perfect to hang on a closet or bathroom door.
Fang Napkin Rings

Fang Napkin Rings

This idea by Family Chic is such a great use of brightly-colored plastic fangs.
Charm Necklace

Funky Bat Necklace

lilruby Jewelry made this necklace using “rusty black charms from B’Sue Boutiques and a plastic skeleton head.” There’s another view of the same necklace here, and lots of other neat stuff on her site. (Also check out the selection of bats from B’Sue.)
Spider Box

Spider Box

Woodworker going to pieces makes cool wooden boxes with spidery legs. There are more examples in his gallery.
Beetlejuice Cross-Stitch

Never Trust the Living

This cute cross-stitched Beetlejuice quote is by Etsy seller CinemaStitches, who has several other amusing ones as well.
Beholder Hat

Beholder Hat

Jen of Twist & Loop made this awesome “beholder” hat with needle-felted eyes for a craft contest. Sadly, despite much begging in the comments, she doesn’t have a pattern available and won’t take commissions.
Fabric Headboard

Fabric Headboard

This would be a great way to use up scrap fabric, or to showcase favorite band T-shirts. There are instructions for making a similar headboard here.
Bumblezor

Beasty Buddies

A whole line of silly fleece hats, including horned Viking helmets and several different monsters (the one pictured is named Bumblezor).
Chalkboard

Wicked Baroque Chalkboard

Available from Houzz, it would probably be possible to DIY something similar using an interesting picture frame and chalkboard paint, but I love that this one comes with bat-shaped magnets.
Marauder's Map

Marauder’s Map Dress

Ali of permets-tu drew the Maurauder’s Map on a dress to wear to Leakycon. There are no build notes, but she commented that she never wanted to use another fine-point Sharpie in her life, so I’m guessing it was just a stencil and a whole lotta work.
