It's Halloween!

Welcome to a new challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog! It's Sara Emily here, and I've chosen the theme "It's Halloween!".  I love Halloween! With Halloween just a few weeks away, I challenge you to create a vintage or shabby chic project with a Halloween theme. Your project can be as silly or creepy as you like, but just have fun!

The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date here at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words 'Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge'. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately, we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

The Design Team has created some wonderful Halloween projects to get you started:

  2. Sandra (#7), I've just come back from pouring over your wonderful photos on IG and had to leave you some love for your amazing and haunting creation! (I can't comment on IG.) So much wonderful texture and color on this piece, and the details are really stunning and well thought out--eek that 'rope' tied around skelly's neck! And the stars on the coffin! Not to mention those gorgeous, GORGEOUS Pressed Foliage leaves! I'm tickled you added those; they are my favorite fall Tim Holtz release! Wonderful work here! Thank you for playing along!

  6. Nancy, I'm loving your altered pumpkin with the spooky details! The tag with the stitching is the detail that just takes this over the top for me. What a wonderful festive piece of home decor! And your card has so many wonderful spooky details over that eerie background; love the stitched Mummy Cloth bow with the bug peeking out! Thank you for playing in our challenge.

  7. Thanks so much for the lovely comments, Sara E! So appreciate it❤️!
