{Halloween Crafts}

Got a couple more holiday decorations made
in the last week. This time -- for Halloween!
Both of these were super easy and cheap.
So, I thought I'd share.

Bought the candle holder at Gracie's Family Thrift
Store for a whole $6.50. Spray painted it black.
Added ribbon and a candle. VoilĂ !

I think everyone has seen these, but it was my
first time making them. Get this -- I got enough
material to make nine of these for $1.22. Nice,
huh?! I was so excited. So, I cut the material,
put a handful of cotton balls to make the shape
of the head, tied it with some strong string, and
made the face with a black sharpie.

I can't wait to put these up. I actually have Halloween
decorating on my calendar! Hopefully I'll make another
project or two between now and then. Happy crafting!
