I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

Simply Charmed, Create-A-Critter 2, Halloween Home Decor
I had another awesome opportunity to make a fun Halloween decoration.  This time it is because of the AMAZING linking party going on over at Craftin' Desert Divas!!!  I decided that my front entry needed a little something more Halloweenish so I took my vase that normally holds silk flowers and turned it into a "Boo"quet!  I used Simply Charmed to cut out the ghosts at 9 1/2", 8 1/2 " (on flip), and 7 1/2".  I used Create-A-Critter 2 for the bats - 2 cut @ 4 1/4", one at 4", and one at 3 3/4".  The "Boo" is also from Create-A-Critter 2 and I cut that out at 4 1/2".  I painted dowels from Home Depot with black acrylic paint and I just had some purple and white tule in my stash that I was able to use for the bow.  I think it turned out super cute - super simple - yet super cute!!!  So come on by and link up your Halloween projects over at Craftin' Desert Divas - would love to see what you come up with!!!
