I have dishes for all the major holidays, Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving and of course- HALLOWEEN! Unfortunately none have seen the light of day for years. Going back to school kept me busy. The only holiday that we decorated for was Christmas. Last year I have no excuse. So we pulled out the Halloween boxes and put together the Halloween tree, put out the Halloween sofa pillows, bought pumpkins, made a great pumpkin centerpiece, and yes switched out the dishes.
When we went to decorate the tree the ornaments were missing; no witches, and goblins and bats, OH MY! So I turned to Pinterest. I found a few that I liked but decided to use craft supplies that I have and was inspired by ornaments at this link:
I added my own flair with fan-folded circles and some glitter. Everything needs ribbon and some floral wire to hang them. This admittedly took a little longer than I had thought it would. Not "carved out book long" but long nonetheless and it only made seven 3” ornaments. Oh Well, better than a naked tree!
