I saw a wreath with leaves for thanksgiving. After a few days of thought I came up with this. It was simple. I cut a circle fit to page and 2, 3, 4, and 5" pumpkins from ppdu. The letters are 2" from plantin schoolbook. I embellished with google eyes, ink and glitter ink.
While assembling I found the center of the circle. Placing several pumpkins together to form a focal point. I also used eyelets and ribbon to allow for easy hanging.
I gave it to my mom for her wall.

You guessed it an other Hobby Lobby class. This one was directed towards breast cancer. All pink! They were very easy to create and this time it was stress free.
I even learned how to Brier (sp). Top right card. Was very simple to do but took a lot of caution to not mess up.

This is the newest addition to my Halloween stuff. I made the ghost with 2 cheese cloths (cut in half, giving me 4 pieces) and a bottle of fabric stiffener. Blow up a balloon to the size you would like. I used a 11" and placed on a coffee can. Place wax paper down on your work surface. Then mix the stiffener according to the directions. I did a 3 to 1 mix. Place the cheese cloth and stiffener in a zip lock bag. Mash everything together, then pull out the cloth. Lay it over the balloon with some wrinkles. After all it is a ghost and shouldn't be perfect. I put a ribbon around the ghost for a more decorative look.
For the eyes I used George cut at 3". Bat and spiders are from paper dolls. Bat is 5" and spiders are cut at 3". Using 2 faced puffy foam to attach. They seem to be holding on great.
