A few weeks ago we had the outside of our house painted. I was waiting until that was finished to start bringing out the Halloween decorations. And now I am so, so excited to get down to the business of decorating.
This is coming into a time of year I just love: Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I have started baskets of supplies for each holiday (adding to last year’s stash) and have begun making lists of things I want to put together this year.
I love this pumpkin pounding idea over at Wondertime (via Two Straight Lines). I am also going to go for something along the lines of pumpkins that were on the cover of County Home (or Cottage Living or one of those this past month) – they used larger circles that will require a bit more work but had such a cool look. My mom and I strategized on this and decided that I could use a circle cookie cutter (not huge obviously) to start the circle and then use a knife to cut the rest out.
I am in the middle of putting together my a Halloween minibook from last year that I will post when I have finished later this week.
Here’s three of the products I have been gathering or am planning to pick up for this season:
Teresa Collins Spooktacular Halloween Circle Tag patterned paper : especially fond of the circles with the lines. The back is black with large white dots (image shows a portion of a 12×12 sheet of paper).
Little Yellow Bicycle Frightful Clear Cut Frames: great for pages in a minibook or as overlays on top of photos.
Evalicious Halloween Mix Button Embellishments: thought these were really cute and could be used in lots of different ways around the house as well as in paper projects.
