Three Easy Halloween DIYs


This weekend I gave myself a challenge to come up with some new Halloween decor using materials I already had.
I was really close!  All I needed was some embroidery thread.  
These are all very simple but have added so much to our little stash of Halloween decorations.







I made two of these pendant banners, and am tempted to make a few more, I love how they turned out.

 This above idea I saw in the Sweet Paul Magazine this month.  I knew I was making this for sure!




This wreath probably needs a little more help, but I am happy enough with it.
I am thinking of adding some spider web or maybe once we have our pumpkins out it will help...





I like how all the rough and loose edges to the fabric add a creepy feel to the decor if you will.
That's about as far as I take it.  I definitely like my Halloween to be more "cute" than "scary"!

Love that wreath! The tattered fabric *makes it*!

Love the garland, really minimalist but effective.

Couldn't go for the wreath though. Black wreaths are used here in Ireland to signify that a family member has died, they're put on the front door for the duration of the wake. So while appropriately spooky, I don't think I'll be making it!
