Always A Project | Googlie Ghostie Bunting

Always A Project | Googlie Ghostie Bunting

Dylan has been asking me if we were going to decorate at all for Halloween. Honestly, I probably wouldn't have done anything beyond a jack-o-lantern, but he seemed so interested. I couldn't say no.
So, as a first step, I threw together a little bunting for the mantel and it's so cute.
Here are the fabrics that I used - all remnants from past projects.

And, some leftover pom-pom trim...

I cut a bunch of 1.5" x 12" strips from my fabrics.

Always a Project | "Survival" Bracelets

I cannot tell you how blessed I was last night to spend time with my oldest son... crafting!

He purchased a "super cool" bracelet while we were out and about yesterday. He was so inspired by it that he came home and wanted to learn how to make it himself!
