My Halloween House - Part 1

I have been having such a blast this month preparing for Halloween.  Some of you (perhaps two of my three readers) may recall my Homemade Halloween Hope List over here.  I thought I'd give you a little update on how I've been doing...

Very simple painted white letters.

A spider pillow cover I made with some left over Halloween fabric.

Merrick acting terrified for the camera.

My homemade decals...which didn't turn out so well.

A yummy non-decor project: Mummy Pretzel sticks!  Find the recipe here.  I changed the chocolate to white almond bark and the eyes to red hots.

Martha Stewart Hang-Ups.  Find the how-to here.  I was going to make several of these, but they take too stinkin' long!

 A pic of the hang-up as my Halloween "wreath."

My disappointing banner!  I made it too long for the hearth!  An update on this is forthcoming as I can not stand leave it as is!

And, finally, I made my Lil' Pumpkin a little pumpkin pillowcase dress.

Happy Almost-Halloween!!!
