Halloween!!

I have been decorating the house for fall and Halloween. I have a couple of wall hangings I've made that I put up every year. I thought it would be fun to share with you.


This one was a free paper pieced pattern I found on the internet over 15 years ago. It was one of my first paper pieced projects. My kids were much younger then and loved seeing the image come to life! I still put it up every year and they still enjoy seeing it! I guess I do too! It wouldn't be Halloween without this little ghost decorating my family room. It was made just using scraps but I like the effect!

I made this one just a couple of years ago. I found the directions on a blog but I can't remember who wrote the tutorial. It hangs on the doorknob of my front door. There's just a button on the back and a black ribbon that holds it up. I appliqued the pumpkin from another fabric and it was just the perfect size for this little trick or treater! I embroidered the BOO as well as the handle on the pumpkin. Such fun!

Those are the only hand made decorations I have for Halloween. Does anyone else have decorations they've made? I'd love to see them!

A special welcome to Kristin! Thank you for following my blog! Hope you like it here!
