Happy Halloween!

I put up halloween decorations weeks ago, but I'm just now getting to blog about it. I was feeling a little crafty this halloween and had fun decorating this year! I hope you all have a safe and haunting halloween!!

I printed this cute free halloween printable online and then painted a plain black frame with clear glitter and framed it. I love birds, and this black crow is perfect for halloween!

Again, I printed this free halloween printable and then framed it. I love the look of the glitter on the black frame, so cool!

Geh, this picture is so dark. I made a "Boo" banner out of some burlap I had lying around and hung it on the front door.

Last, I spray painted these little carvable pumpkins I found at Dollar Tree with silver spray paint (a project I did for my mom's b-day party) and then sat them on a couple candle holders I had in the garage that were collecting dust.

Book Page Topiaries

What do you do with leftover book page punchouts from a previous project? Well, you make a fun topiary! I had painted the three pots several months ago and just had them sitting on my piano, empty. Now I have something to fill them with! I had a punching party one night and punched a whole book (The Devil Wears Prada!) and then gave the punch back to my friend. Unforuntaely, I was only able to finish two topiaries. I didn't want to ask to borrow the punch again, since I'd had it longer than I promised. So, I need to figure out something fun to do with the third topiary. I love the way they turned out.
