projects for Hallowe'en

I love Hallowe'en. I say that a lot.
I love vintage Hallow'en images, I treasure my very small collection of antique Hallow'en decorations.
Love that smell of scorched pumpkins that fills the last night of October, floating over the crunch of sweet decaying leaves.
Love the tradition of becoming something else, for just that one night.

And I love making Hallowe'eny things.
These projects were created using the vintage Hallowe'en kit from Scrapologie.

Paper lanterns for a string of large Christmas lights.

Box with handcut scalloped edge.. perfect for a centre piece or filled with treats.

Decorative flags on picks, made from fabric vintage images.

A portion of a little garland on a length of ribbon, with chenille silver stars and paper tags. Perfect length to wrap around a potted plant or hang across a doorway.

I am also a HUGE fan of Halloween! Just posted a bunch of pics of my decor on my blog. Getting ready for the big kiddie Halloween party this Saturday. Do you do a party for your girls? I made a fun framed "giant scrapbook page" with my Scrapologie kit. LOVED all the great Halloween goodies in that. You did some fantastic projects with yours!! Thanks for the inspiration. Hope to hear from you sometime.
