More Halloween decorations



Again some photos of the Halloween decorations I use. This small tree is now decorated for Halloween. The embroidered felt ornaments were made by my mother and I found the adorable little porceline jack o'lanterns to go with them at a garden center. I then sprinkle tiny orange silk leaves throughout the tree. The witch tree top was a gift from my mother from her visit to Salem, Mass.. I will show you what was done with all the fall flowers, berries, leaves and apples that had been in the fall tree tomorrow as they have become part of a new arrangement.

The fabric pumpkins are so simple to make! They are a craft idea from the Debbie Mumm website. You can find them at http://www.debbiemumm.com/potm/06/october/crafts/octoberpotmcrafts.asp#plumpkins
They are also a great idea to do together with kids. First you need a walk outside to find some pieces of branch to use for the stems and then create these fun, fat, squishy little pumpkins.
