Halloween

Oh how I love a white pumpkin!  LOVE!  I think they are the cutest and best things to decorate with for both Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Decorating with white pumpkins couldn’t be easier.  So versitle.

The Crafting Chicks

The Crafting Chicks are a group of friends pooling all their creative talents all in one blog.  You’ll never get bored with them.   One of the chicks planted a small white pumpkin plant….she ended up with enough to decorate a few rooms.  I think I’ll plant one next year.

This wreath isn’t something you see everyday.  She obviously doesn’t live in the beautiful Pacific NW…….we could never get away with having a paper wreath outdoors.    But indoors yes!

It doesn’t look like paper to you?  It is!  It’s an old book.  She used pages from an old book!  They have a VERY GOOD tutorial on their site. It’s even numbered.  :)  I think this is one my favorite ideas for Halloween, next to this one using mannequin  legs.  (I met her at The Creative Connection)Sticking with that same theme…..using old pages from a book……..here’s another beauty. 

Reminds me of some of the stuff I saw at the Creative Connection.

They have a variety of crafts on their site.  This one is perfect for the whole family.  Great way to measure those kiddo’s hands year to year too.

Are you decorated for Halloween?

Please head on over and show them how wonderful all my readers are……..surprise them by telling them they are today’s feature.

Come back tomorrow for Fabulous Friday Giveaway.

    Love these ideas! They are so fantastic! I’m definitely going to try that flower and the wreath. I have an old dictionary lying around that I almost threw out, but I’m so glad I didn’t.

    Happy Fall!

    Oooh, all of these projects are great but the book page ones remind me of a huge ostrich made all of paper pages like the cones etc that I saw at Anthrolopologie last year, amazing. I am thinking along these lines for Christmas decor……..thanks for the reminder! Beautiful things.
