My 2021 Halloween 3 Tiered Tray // Come see what I use to create it! // Come Craft with me!

Halloween is one of my top 3 favorite holidays of the year. I search out for new and fun items to decorate the house with. And I always love creating and styling my Halloween 3 Tiered Tray every year. I have found a lot of great Rae Dunn Halloween mugs too, so I couldn't wait to use those.  Come see how I decorated my 3 Tiered Tray! 



Top Tray

Starting from the left, I have the Sarah Sanderson Funko Pop that I bough from Amazon last year. Behind Sarah is a candy corn colored small brush tree that I got from Target this year. They came in a pack of 2. Then in front of the Tree is a Johanna Parker Pumpkin Salt Shaker. It comes in a set of 2 items and came from Marshalls. This was the 1st time finding anything Johanna Parker! I was so excited!! Behind the Pumpkin is my black BOO Rae Dunn Mug that I bought from Facebook Marketplace. Inside of the mug is a vintage candy corn that I bought years ago at the Lodi Street Faire. It's one of my favorite decorations for Halloween. The Halloween beaded garland starts of the top tray and the pumpkin is hanging from the handle of the BOO mug. 




Middle Tray

Starting from the left, I have a Rae Dunn Halloween Mug. Inside of the mug is a Rae Dunn Spooky black spatula. Hanging from the spatula is a the Pumpkin Tag from my Etsy shop. In front of the Halloween mug is another Vintage candy corn. In the middle of the tray is a Mary Sanderson Funko Pop that I bought off of Amazon. On the right of Mary is my Purple Hocus Pocus Rae Dunn Mug. I bought it off of Facebook Marketplace. Hanging next to the Hocus Pocus mug is the October 31st Tag from my Etsy Shop.  The Halloween beaded garland lays across the front of the middle tray. 




Bottom Tray

On the left, I have a Lime Green Toxic Rae Dunn mug that I bought from Facebook Marketplace. Inside is a Velvet orange pumpkin that I bought from the Target Dollar Spot. In front of the Toxic mug is another vintage candy corn. It is the last of the set of 3. In the middle is the leader of the pack, Winifred Sanderson, who is flying on her brookstick. To the right of Winifred is another candy corn colored brush tree. I bought these in a set of 2 at Target. A little behind the tree is a Fright Night Rae Dunn mug that I bought at Home Goods. Inside the Fright Night mug is a Trick or Treat orange Rae Dunn Spatula. It's kind of hidden. Handing off that spatula is a Boo Tag from my Etsy Shop. We finish off the bottom tray with the end of the Halloween Beaded Garland.



On the left of the 3 Tiered Tray

Closest to the 3 tiered tray is a Happy Halloween Pumpkin Orange Rae Dunn candle. Sitting inside of the candle is the Halloween Owl pepper shaker from Johanna Parker. This was in a set that I got from Marshalls. To the left of that is a DIY Pumpkin Cook Book Stand that I made using Chalk Couture items! It's one of my favorites that I have made. In front is a Eat Up Witches Rae Dunn Tray that I found at Home Goods. I feel that it fits well with the Hocus Pocus Witches. 

See How I made the Pumpkin Cookbook Stand HERE!

Check out my Ocean Mantle // Before it gets changed out for 4th of July!



 I really enjoy creating and changing my mantle for each season and holiday. But the normal everyday mantel is always ocean themed. I love finding things to add to it. This collection just seems to grow over the years, so I when I revert back to a non-holiday, I can change it up every time put it back up. 

Starting from the left is my Octopus Chalk Art that I created a few weeks ago. I created this all with Chalk Couture Transfers and Chalk Paste. Check out the Blog post HERE! 

Next on the mantle is a starfish that I have had a really long time. I've used it in all of our house in some way. 

Moving to the next item is made with all Chalk Couture items. But the best part of this Chalk Paste is that it is a custom color. Can you guess how I made it? The Chalk Paste used was all the left over chalk paste mixed together from the Octopus Chalk Art. So the match perfect!

Then I added in the giant upper case wooden B that I found at Marshalls. 


In the middle of the mantle is this Beach sign that I made from Scrap wood and Chalk Couture a transfer and Chalk Paste. This was a great easy DIY project that I made in minutes.... yes minutes! I love projects like these! 

On the other side is another Star Fish that I have has forever as well. Can't ever have enough starfish! 


This large teal vintage looking whale is one of my favorite items that I own. I purchased it a few years ago. This whale is so heavy and fully made from wood. I first saw this at Marshalls but didn't want to pay the $25 price tag. I thought about this whale all the time. And when I went back to finally get it, it was gone! I was so upset that I missed out. Since Marshalls doesn't carry the same stock, I thought "that's it. I missed my opportunity. They a week to two later, while strolling through the aisles, there is was! My Whale!  I put that whale in my cart and she is all mine.  

Next to my whale is 2 vintage looking wooden buoys. I've has these for years and years and these are also a favorite of mine! I think I bought these at Home Goods.  These are also ready heavy and made completely out of wood. 


On the Left side bottom start with my Vintage looking wooded buoys with hooks. I bought these on clearance at Hobby Lobby. 

Right under is my rope buoy ball. I don't remember where I got this but I have also have had it for a while. My husband questioned me on this purchase.... I just laughed and told him it's party of the ocean decor. 

Next to that is the Vintage looking wooden painted blue anchor. I have had this for a long time and I'm not even sure where I got it.  


On the right side of my fireplace, I have this vintage bell. Im not sure if it even has anything to do with the ocean but once I saw it I fell in love. It has a very soft bell sound when swung around. I actually found this at a resort in my home town called Wine & Roses. I actually used to work there in the Spa as a Nail Technician. Wine & Roses has this amazing gift shop in the Spa called The Nest. It has great finds. While at the Spa one day for a massage, I saw this bell. I was there for quite a while, and then on one of my birthdays, my Mom surprised me and got it for me! 

Next to the bell is a small sign that I made. This was a fun easy- Sunshine is Favorite Color! Is was a quick 5 minute project - Click HERE to read the blog post! 
Here's a video on how I made it: 

The last item is this octopus wall art. We have had this since the Jackson street house. I bought it at Target 4-5 years ago.

January Club Couture - You & Me /// Come Craft with me!

Get all lovey dovey for your special one with the January 2021 Club Couture Transfer, You & Me. A bold ampersand and playful hearts accentuate the love you share with your significant other. This Transfer makes it easy to decorate for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, or any time you feel your heart beating faster for the love of your life. Create custom wedding and anniversary gifts for those idyllic couples in your life. This month’s Transfer includes Chalkology Paste Singles in Colonial Blue, Mauvelous, and Raspberry Sorbet. Recreate this look on a Farmhouse Pallet Sign (9” x 12”, item S191104).
Supplies Needed

Club Couture Transfer: You and Me

Surface: Farmhouse Pallet Sign (9" × 12", item S191104)

Chalkology Paste Singles: Colonial Blue, Mauvelous, Raspberry Sorbet

Tools: Small Squeegee, Mini Squeegees,  Transfer TrimmersColor Trays, and Fuzzing Cloth 



Color and Placement Suggestions

Colonial Blue: Sentiment and accent hearts
Mauvelous: Accent hearts
Raspberry Sorbet: Accent hearts
Follow these instructions to complete this project:

1. Remove your Transfer from its packaging.

2. Cut along the Transfer’s provided cut lines to separate the elements.

3. Carefully peel off the Transfer Backer Sheet of the element you’re using first.

4. “Fuzz” the Transfer element by gently pressing onto a Fuzzing Cloth and carefully pulling it upward to collect a bit of lint (this helps to more easily remove the Transfer from the surface after you’ve applied the paste).

5. Centering top to bottom, position the “&” part of the Transfer in the center of the board. Smooth out the element to adhere, ensuring there are no bubbles.

6. Knead each Chalkology Paste Single, open the top, and squeeze the desired amount onto a Color Tray, using a new tray for each color.

7. Use a generous amount of paste on your squeegee and smooth it over the Transfer (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”).

8. Once the screen portion of the design is completely covered, squeegee the excess paste off as evenly as possible and scrape it back into the tray. The more excess paste you remove, the better the result will be.

9.. Before the paste dries, slowly peel back the Transfer. To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from two corners instead of peeling diagonally. Immediately clean the Transfer with cool water (do not let it soak).

10. Dry the Transfer flat with the sticky side up.

11. Once the chalked sections are dry, repeat steps 3–5 and 7–10 for the “you,” “me,” and the accent hearts. Let each layer of paste dry completely before adding additional paste layers.

12. Once all Transfer elements are washed and dried, reapply the Backer Sheet to each and store flat.

13. Relish your creation!

Happy New Years from Sara Nicole Designs!


Happy New Years! I am so happy to have 2020 over! Last year was unlike any other year before. There were ups and downs, but we came out stronger than ever. Between working a ton with my normal job, Safety Supervisor and UPS, becoming a teacher to my 2 older kids in elementary school, and trying to keep my household running smoothly. 

This school year has been challenging with the kids changing to a new school, all while never setting foot into their new classrooms. My kids have never met their new classmates. But each of my kids have amazing teachers! Kellan has Mr. Baker and has been such a positive change from our teacher last year. From what I have heard, Mr. Baker is the most wanted 5th grade teacher! Kellan is so happy to have him and has gotten all 3's & 4's this year! Kellan has done great at distance learning, but wants to be back in the classroom. Arley has Mrs. Halligan and has loved her new teacher. Mrs. Halligan has always made sure to make Arley feel welcomed and loved. We are so happy with the kids teachers. Arley has struggled a little more with distance learning and keeping her stuff organized. We have had the helper from my Mom with helping Mason with preschool stuff and distance learning with all the kids! I don't know what we would do without her! 

This year has been a learning experience with all of my creative endeavors. I have learned so much about Chalk Couture and love using it to decorate for every holiday and everyday home decor. It allows me to keep sane while dealing with all the stay at home orders.  

Not sure what Chalk Couture is? Read all about it HERE

After last year, we learned that whatever life throws at us, we can get through it. We may not like it, but we can grit our teeth, learn how to do new things (like home school), and come out stronger! 

Did you set goals for yourself for 2021? 

I did! I want to work on a few things in my life - personal and business! 

1. Try to keep organized. 

2. Get on my Peleton at least 3 days a week. 

3. Dedicate more time to my business - Sara Nicole Designs! 

These don't seem to crazy, so I am hoping to be able to stick to them. 

Who is ready for a new year!?! I know I am!
