Show + Tell No. 137: Cute Halloween Ideas


I am suffering from a slight bout of Halloween depression. I only have one little trick-or-treater left. His older brothers have decided they are "too old" at least one or two years too early for my taste. It appears there is nothing left but to live through you guys and your phenomenal projects. I thought today I would share a few of the cute Halloween ideas shared in last week's linky. Show + Tell Highlights I am a sucker for "31" projects and I love this cheerful Halloween pillow.

Show + Tell No. 136: Halloween Ideas


I am typically pretty invested in my Halloween decorating. This year, I decided to go with a simple harvest theme in my house. I haven't had a giant change of heart. Basically I am trying to make sure that I don't have Halloween decor up for Thanksgiving this year. Since I am feeling a little depressed about my lack of scary, I am going to highlight some fun Halloween projects that were linked up. Show + Tell Highlights I love the girls from My Sister's Suitcase and today I am doing something I rarely do...sharing two of their projects (totally fair since there are two sisters)!

Good luck deciding which one to make! ... ... 15 Candy Corn Halloween Treats ... Love these candy corn cookies from The Crafting Chicks. ...

DIY Sleepy Hallow Halloween Sign

DIY Sleepy Hallow Halloween Sign 6

Hi friends!  I can't believe it is October already!  Bring on the Halloween Decor!  Today I'm sharing this cute DIY Sleepy Hallow Halloween Sign with you. I was recently hanging out with one of my best blogging buddies and we happened to be thrifting it up at our local Goodwill store. I came across this pretty typical Halloween sign that I'm sure was from a craft store as a pre-made sign you could purchase.  It just wasn't my style but I liked the jagged cut wood and the possibility of what it could be.  So I snagged it for $3.  I knew one thing for sure, I wanted a black and white sign.  So … [Read more...]
