Super cute bracelets

Blue Cricket Design did these adorable bracelets!
Its made out of just chunky plastic bracelets and scraps of fabric.
It's such a cute thing to do with the girls bracelets that are in their dress up box.
When they are at school, I'll have to get them out and make some of my own!

The Start of my Halloween Decorating

My Halloween Garland!
So I have been saving toilet paper rolls for a while now (I'm surprised my husband hasn't questioned it though) and have been waiting to think of a really cool project to do with them. I found one!

So I cut it in half, then covered it in orange scrapbook paper. Once it was dry, I poked a hole in each side and stuck wire through it.

Then I drew on a pumpkin face with a sharpie (none are the same!) and tied a green ribbon around the wire.

After finishing the pumpkins, I cut out ghost shapes, glued on googly eyes, and white glitter, (because who doesn't love sparkle?!) and stuck a wire through the top
Then I hung both the pumpkins and the ghosts on my garland over the fireplace (yes it's been there since Christmas, but I decorate it for each season!)

I'm also doing the Fall Festival at DIY Show Off. Check it out!
