Halloween Crafts

 One of my friends invited a bunch of girls over for a craft/card night.  I didn't feel like making cards because I still have quite a few from my days as a Stampin' UP! demonstrator so I worked on a few crafts that I had seen out in the blogging world.  Here are the things I was able to make that night. It felt so good to do something crafty. It has been way too long! It was also great to hang out with friends and eat yummy food and have a break from mommy duty!
Thomas's school has a fall carnival and each class puts together a basket so I made a pumpkin for the basket and for me.  I made the cute frame. It is the $1 frame from Michaels. The pumpkin stamp is from Stampin' UP Carved & Candelit (still one of my all time favorite sets!) I printed BOO out on my printer then stamped the pumpkin, cut it out and put it in the frame, super easy and cheap fun!

I saw the idea for the white pumpkin here and had to make one. They were really easy to make and turned out pretty cute.. 

I had seen a lot of halloween shadow boxes and decided to make my own version. I found a 50% off any Martha Stewart product coupon for Michael's so I bought the bat punch, I had the 10x10 canvas already.  I punched the bats out of some halloween paper and used a tape measure to mark off my grid. I put the bats on with pop dots.  It only took abotu 30 minutes to make and I love the end result!  I haven't hung it up yet because I haven't found my box of halloween decorations, maybe I'll find them this weekend while we are getting ready for our neighborhood garage sale!
So there are my fun crafts! It felt good to do something I love...I need to make more time for things like this!
