Succotash thinks our door is VERY spooky and VERY awesome.
Used most of the Elles Studio kit, with a few scraps of my own paper mixed in, strung on ribbon.
and a glow in the dark spider for good measure
banner #3- made with some brighter Halloween paper I had left over from last year. This banner was supposed to be more cutesy/less spooky since it was made for two little treats in Ohio who may be to young to be spooked just yet ; ).
banner #4- this was a new technique for me. I wanted to make a second present for the babies and I have wanted to try making this kind of garland. Basically I die cut a bunch of shapes from my Silhouette and gathered a bag of silk leaves. Then I fed one after the other into my sewing machine and just stitched them together. It was actually easier than I thought it would be. If you want to try this yourself, I have two tips: sew slowly and lengthen your stitches. Both help the random pieces go thru smoothly. I got the idea from Elizabeth Kartchner's blog. She has a tutorial on this kind of garland (she even added playing cards to hers, what an awesome idea!)
That's about it around here....what's on your agenda for Halloween? I have two partied to juggle after I take a day trip to Brown Cty, IN. Sunday I am working on getting myself invited over to watch trick or treaters. There are none in my neighborhood, so I have to go elsewhere.
