It's fall . . . it's mid-October . . . Halloween is right around the corner . . . Yay! I always get excited when October comes. There's something about the month and the count down to Halloween that makes me reminisce on the days when my mom would ask my sister and I what we wanted to be for Halloween, so she could gather supplies and fabric to sew up our costumes. She'd start right at the beginning of the month and she would show us her progress. I think I love Halloween over any other holiday because of my mom. She would go all out and have my sis and I decorate the house with spooky cats, skeletons, witches. Every year, she'd buy a pumpkin and carve it, letting my sister gut the pumpkin and me insert the candle. She'd light it and we'd place on our front porch and relish the work we'd done. What great memories! Thanks mom!
But I digress, the point of this post, besides sharing a tidbit of my childhood, is to share the wonderful Halloween crafts that I've found on Flickr. Here are some great DIYs and inspiring Halloween decor. Enjoy!
