Ready for October!



I've never considered myself a very crafty person. At least not successfully crafty. Despite this, I decided to try my hand at a few cute Halloween crafts this year. The candy corn wreath didn't turn out quite as symetrical as I has invisioned, but it's not too bad. My favorite are the frames on the mantel. They were so easy to make and a lot of fun. The hardest part was finding frames large enough to hold the letters I'd chosen (thank you Walmart, glad you're good for something other than headaches). I think this was a pretty successful weekend!

Thanks Courtney!! I took a foam craft wreath and covered it in black tape. Then i just hot glued candy corn around it one ring at a time and sprayed it with clear spray paint so it wouldn't get sticky. It was really easy! I saw it on Woman's Day magazine and eighteen25.blogspot (awesome blog!)
