Halloween Crafts

I was so NOT in the Halloween mood this year until WAY LATE!  I made my costume at the last minute, when I was inspired by devil horns I found.  A super easy RED tutu later and I'm a she devil.  I realized I didn't have a ton of Halloween decorations so this was thrown together SUPER last minute, but here are a few fun things I made this weekend.

Trick or Treat Banner
I cut out 4 different pumpkins from my pumpkin carving Cricut Cartridge and my Cricut Expression.  I used my mini monograms cartridge to cut out the letters and xyroned those onto the pumpkins.  I attached eyelets and tied the pumpkins together on the back with ribbons and then attached cute polka ribbons to the end pumpkins.  I should have aged the pumpkins and monograms with paint and maybe added some glitter.  Maybe I'll do that this week before it goes into the box for next year.

Halloween Frame 

I had this wooden frame with broken glass inside sitting on my craft shelf and decided to make a quick Halloween frame.  I painted the edges and inside of the frame purple and then modge podged a piece of 12x12 scrapbook paper onto that, let dry and then modge podged the front.  I cut out the beware and the bats on my pumpkin carving cartridge and adhered the Beware onto white cardstock.  I found some velvet stickers I've had for awhile and put those on and then tied leftover tulle and ribbons onto my frame.

Super easy!
