Crafty Decorations

Welcome back for our second day of our Halloween Pinterest Challenge!!  (We are assuming you came back, after reading yesterdays post on decorating pumpkins.)  Today, we have a few non-pumpkin decorations to share.

In clockwise order, starting from the top left:

Beth's Sign Post:  I love how this turned out.  I am excited to see it get worn down from use every year, so it will be even better!  My only regret is that I have not used any purple anywhere else - but next year I will definitely have to find ways to add purple in my decorations.  I found the boards and stake at Michaels, painted them and hand painted the letters.  There is no bad paint job - if the letters are wobbly it just adds to the effect!! (Side note - I had to stop myself from adding glitter - but maybe I'll add it next year since I'm still thinking about it)

Beth's Wreath:  I love the burlap wreaths I see everywhere.  I have made a few, but none for the front door.  They are always a little tough to get started (how am I wrapping the burlap again?) - but they are completely worth the effort.  You can't see in the picture, but I added copper glitter to the edge of the C.  It looks pretty cool up close, and gives it a little glamour.  Maybe that should be my theme 'Rustic Glamour' - I am digging the burlap and glitter combo! Lol

Beth's Lantern:  Seriously - this was the best find ever!  I got this lantern for $13 at Fred Meyers on clearance.  Best...Find..Ever!!  I just layered burlap ribbon and fake pumpkins together.  I really want to put some orange lights in there too, but I have to figure out how to power them.

Felicia's Wreath:  I found this adorable wicker wreath.  I was going to individually pick each flower, but then I found a cute bouquet.  At first I was going to just use a few of the big flowers and one or two of the extras.  As you can see - I ended up using the whole thing.  I'm glad I did!!

You might have noticed a theme from yesterday and today - we will be showing off our decorated porches tomorrow!!  We hope you'll stick around and tell us what crafts or projects you've done for your Halloween and Fall decorations.

Happy Halloween!!
