And So It Begins...

The Halloween crafting has officially begun. 
 
I made it official by hanging my Halloween wreath on our front door.



To make my wreath, I got a grapevine wreath form (on sale!) and spray painted it with Kyrlon's pumpkin orange. While I was waiting for that to dry, I took my letters and painted and glittered them, then did an overcoat of mod podge to keep the glitter from flaking off. I made the spider web inside the wreath form with hemp twine. The spiders I got from the dollar store! I put everything together with my trusty glue gun, Debra. 




more Halloween decor coming to this area soon!


Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love decorating for it, but since we live with Amazing Boyfriend's parents, he did suggest that I ask his Mom first before going ahead and making things to decorate with. Her response when I asked her was, "I have decorations, but I'm sure you could come up with something so much better then what I have. Go ahead and make whatever you want." 

I like the sound of that!


Has everyone else started on their Halloween or fall crafting?
