A long time coming...

I hope you will excuse my absence from the crafting and blogging world for a little while. I just completed a very big project and will be taking some time to admire my work ;-D

This little man finally joined us on October 21st, 5 days after expected. 

Our other little man is not so sure what he thinks yet, but he's doing well with the transition so far.

Boo Wreath

I came across this Halloween wreath by Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous a while back on Pinterest and really liked it. It was actually one of the projects for our little church group craft club last month, but I happened to be out of town that day and I’m just now getting around to finishing it.
Let me tell you - cutting burlap, not my favorite. It is super messy! I did appreciate the extra technique Linda gave, made it much easier to cut straight lines.
So as usually I put my own little spin on this project.
I used smaller letters – just because- no reason really. I painted them white and then I found some sparkly paint at Joann’s. I originally wanted to cover the letters in orange glitter, but due to some super cute crafts floating around the blogosphere involving orange glitter, they were all sold out.

Then I used the rest of the foam stickers and embellished it.
Oh yeah, and I used this handy tip for the wreath form. It cost less than a $1! Love it!

Halloween Tree

So I’m really getting my money’s worth out of this project. I think it’s such an easy way to decorate and it doesn’t need much. I took this Easter Tree and turned it into this Fall Tree, now I’ve updated it for Halloween. I got these little foam stickers at Joann’s for a couple dollars, maybe $2 a pack.

All I did was stick them back to back with a little loop of ribbon in between.
