Still busy crafting for Halloween, one of my favorite holidays!

 I remember when my kids were all little and getting excited about who or what they would dress up as on Halloween. Once that was decided they would want me to start sewing their costumes and each year I would. As they got older I would sometimes try and use the previous years costume on a younger kid but usually one of their cousins would use it instead. We would decorate the whole front of the house with a grave yard scene, a witch flying in the tree branches, and we even made a life sized werewolf and Frankenstein! Our house was known as the "Halloween House". When fog machines came out we were the first to have one...those were the days! Despite all the work we have such special memories of that time. 

We have moved to a different house 5 years ago and it just doesn't have the same ambiance, the trees are still small not like the 25 year old maple trees we had at the other home which helped frame our outdoor "Halloween" stage.....but we still decorate only on a smaller scale and we love it!

Here are 2 new Halloween bunting banners that are reusable year after year and add some bright autumn color to your room! The "BOO" is felt letters which I cut out and machine stitched to each flag. 

Note the spider patterned fabric is a gorgeous glittered fabric which adds an extra sparkle to your decor!
