My theme is vintage/classic Halloween:
Jack-o-lanterns, black cats, witches, cauldrons, haunted houses, trick-or-treating.
Beistle, Gurley inspired etc
Black, orange, yellow, purple.

Nothing has to be Halloween specific as that may be a challenge right now:
Black and white stripes, orange polka dots, whatever - you get the idea! I like all things mid-century or that conjure up Halloween as a kid in the 1970s. That's me! I don't care for bloody/gory.

  • Beistle type garland, cut-outs, patches,etc
  • mug, decorative plate - any fun kitchen items
  • shirt/sweatshirt (unisex or men's large/XL) , cozy socks or slippers (size 8 womens)
  • throw blanket
  • anything to decorate a fireplace like a felt garland, etc
  • anything "Home Sweet Haunted Home"
  • old Halloween children's books
  • orange indoor wire/string lights with remote

I just got divorced so this will be my 1st Halloween in my new condo! I am excited to decorate and begin new traditions for Halloween this year! Please don't feel the need to give me a lot of things! I know the pressure but please don't fret. I am super happy with just one spooky surprise (and storage is an issue, as well LOL)!

Lastly, THANK YOU!!!!

[Don't understand
Lokai, this thread is for gift idea lists for the Secret Reaper exchanges we do throughout the year. There is a Sign Up and Discussion thread, and a Teaser and Picture thread, too, for these.
It's like a secret Santa type thing, but more Halloween style.
The sign up thread always has the rules and info in the first post.
bethene is the one who generally runs these exchanges. You can always message her if you are interested and have questions. You can look back at past picture threads for secret reapers, too, to see pics of what we do.

Here is the link to the sign up thread for this Secret Reaper exchange, which is a specific themed one:

Ok I am in. So my theme for the mini reap is MINI! We are building a Victorian Haunted Dollhouse so we need just about everything for inside and out. Absolutely ANYTHING will work as long as it is 1:12 scale. We do have a weather vane and that is it for now. This can be:
Furniture
Shutters
Molding
Wallpaper
Objects
brooms
candles
cauldrons
books
rugs
cats
pumpkins
and on
and on
and on!

It just needs to be 1:12 scale and we will make it a part of the house!

Thank you.

My theme for this mini reap is Creative Halloween. I am in need of things to make my trophies for our Halloween Party this year. I recently started working with resin and am planning on using it to make the trophies.

Things that I can put in the resin:
Foil flakes
Small sequins
Mélange pearls
Small stones
Iridescent colored flakes
Micro beads
Halloween related resin fillers (tiny spiders, bugs, skulls, knives, coffins, etc.)
Anything else you can think of that would work in resin.

Tools:
Small needle nose pliers
Silicone mixing cups (small ones)
Long grill lighters (the cheap ones are fine)
Resin drill
Silicone sheet
Rubbing alcohol
Metal Emery boards (like for fingernails) not the buffing kind

Thanks. :cool:

I finally settled on a theme, here you go:

Potion bottles and other altered bottles
*I am building a stash for making potion bottles and other altered, Halloween-themed bottles.
*Any or all of this can be upcycled/recycled/found, etc.


Unique and unusual empty bottles, or unique sets of bottles, any size. (No need to send upcycled/recycled ordinary everyday bottles as I already have a stash going.)
Anything to decorate or attach to bottles:
Feathers, any size, any type (pheasant would be great to have)
Porcupine quills
Keys, especially skeleton keys
Maple seeds (see pinterest page)
Skulls or skeleton parts, mini to small sizes
Charms
Beads
Any lengths of jewelry-size chain
Moss, fur, leather, fabric/gauze/tulle
Watch parts, small hardware, anything steampunk
Old costume jewelry parts and pieces
Broaches, etc.
Small crafting mirror pieces
Designed papers and images that can be decoupaged onto bottles
Fake black flowers, any size, any kind
Anything that looks like it would be perfect for altered and potion bottles
Fun labels, designed or blank
Anything to make toppers out of:
Corks, all sizes
Small door knobs or drawer pulls
Old lamp finials, or other finials
Gems and crystals
Unusual rocks
Shells
Any kind of trinket that would make a great bottle stopper/topper
Twine, string, small ropes, etc.
No need for:
Glue, paints, adhesives, or anything that is difficult to ship.

Dear future reaper, I will appreciate anything you send me!

My theme is Gypsy Rose..

Candles: scented and plain, coloured, with gem fragments and flowers.. all shapes and sizes
Gemstones.. I have an ever growing collection and would love to add to them.. particularly moonstones and moss agate
Divination: tarot cards, oracle cards, runes, palms for reading, pendulums (especially home made), tea reading cup... anything to do with fortune telling
Cloths: scraps to be used with patchwork quilting, lace, trims, pretty remnants, buttons, charms, beads
Mismatched teacups, quirky little bowls, pretty jars and containers
Bells and windchimes.. I love the sound they make.. something I can imagine being tied to a traditional horse drawn wagon
Celestial sun moon and stars or third eye images/ art work if you are feeling crafty!




I have a pinterest board if you need any inspiration: (120) Pinterest

I love home made, thrifted... and love seeing how creative people get within the theme.
Thank you in advance!
