Halloween Banner Swap

While I missed out on the Sweet & Sinister Swap this year, Shara at Monkeybox hosted a banner swap! Everyone was assigned a different letter. I got the letter H. And this is what I came up with.

I used those cheap plastic spider rings. I cut the ring part off and then glittered them with some Martha Stewart glitter. I used orange...

And black ones.

Originally I thought I'd use a crackle finish. I have two different types of crackle mediums. One is supposed to be "one step" but it doesnt work that well. Which I forgot when I used it on these. So in my attempt to try & hurry it along, I stuck them in the microwave. And the result was this weird texture.

Kind of reminds me of spider webbing, so I think it worked out!

I have been holding on to this textured paper since I started scrapbooking 10 years ago. I hardly ever use it, but for some reason I havent gotten rid of it yet, so I thought I'd try with this. For the letters I copied a stencil.

And now for the rest of the banner. Shara did the O.

Diane did the first L.

Laura did the second L.

Shara did the O.

Aimee Suzanne did the W.

Michele did an E.

Lyn did the other E.

And Dorothy did the N. Funny how the first & last letters are pretty similar, huh?

Thanks for hosting, Shara! It was fun!

Halloween Wreath

I can't believe how long it's been since I shared a project! I started this wreath back in the beginning of summer. But of course, I procrastinate, and never finished it! I managed to get part of the white wrapped. I had planned on making it summery, but since it never got finished, I decided to try again for Halloween.

This is the first wreath I think I've ever made, and the first time making felt flowers. But I think it turned out really cute!

I also added a little bit of orange yarn on the other side.

Still trying to decide if it needs anything else? What do you think?

ALSO! Would you like the chance to win a set of crayons from my Etsy Shop? If so, head on over to Making Lemonade for a giveaway!

A Few More Pumpkin Shots...

Since it's October already (!), I thought I'd share a few more pumpkin pictures. They have all been harvested now. It's almost the time that we could be selling them, if only the darn bugs hadnt done what they did.

But hey, at least the gourds made it!

We ended up with all different shapes & sizes. There are still quite a few that arent ready yet.

I do have a couple of projects to share, so hopefully they will be posted soon!
