Do you remember the little flag lanterns that I made in July? This is the Halloween version.
I made these a few years ago from little pattern packet I purchased from Rock Creek Emporium (they used to have a website, but it doesn’t appear to be active anymore.) They’re really fun and easy to make and they follow the same premise as the flag lanterns. Paint your baby food jars orange, draw on some faces and embellish.
Halloween has always been a favorite holiday — not the creepy spooky side of Halloween so much, but the fun, smiling pumpkins side. I’m loving all the Halloween inspiration popping up all over. In particular:
- I Love, love, LOVE this banner. I Reeeeaaaallllly want to make one.
- This post has a cute little 13 Days of Halloween calendar. A fun idea if you have little ones.
- And, of course, the Glitter Lady’s Halloween tree and the glittered spider box ornament (pictured in this post) that were featured on Martha. Too, too cute!
So, those of you out there getting a head start on Christmas — quit it! There’s only a few more days left to revel in the beautiful orange and black of Halloween — THEN we can talk red and green!
