halloween decorations

Holiday decorating: slowly but surely...

Halloween is my favorite holiday and yet I've got little decorations for it. With the help of family and my obsession with making things lately, this is a good start.

Gift from Jana
Walmart find

Love Joann's
Time and effort :)
I think I'll make a couple handmade decorations each year for Halloween until a decoration overload occurs, at that point - time to throw out the old and start over again!
