The Bow and the Boo

It’s here!  The Halloween wreath was completed yesterday after a return trip to Michael’s for more ribbon.  I had a feeling they wouldn’t have the same ribbon, since EVERYthing is 50% off, now, and things are picked through.  Love the sale and even though I couldn’t find the same ribbon, I did find two spools that coordinated very nicely.  They were the last two that weren’t covered in skulls.  Lucky!  Using my E-Z Bow Maker, I made the bow and then wrapped the wreath in the coordinating ribbon.  I used floral wire to attach the pumpkins and the “Boo.”

This is a great time for crafters on a budget, because both Michael’s and Hobby Lobby have marked fall stuff down 50%.  I also found coupons online:  20% off entire purchase at Michael’s (including items on sale!) and 40% off any regular priced item at Hobby Lobby.  That’s my kind of shopping. 

Here's the rest of the outdoor display:



The pumpkin and owl light up figures were gifts from my BF and Ms. BF Mom, who always have great taste and love fall as much as I do.  Thank you both! 

And I couldn't stop there.  Here are the indoor displays:



The jars I made a few years ago for a Halloween party.  I made the labels myself and filled thrift-store jars with things I found in the floral department.  Coming soon: a how-to on jar labels and book pages on my Craft page.
