{why buy when you can make!?}

I had seen a skull garland similar to this in a little boutique and loved it, so instead of paying a ton for it, I decided to make my own! All it took was some heavy scrapbook paper, some scissors, and silver ribbon! I think it's a perfect Halloween decoration!

I love that! I am HORRIBLE at decorating for holidays, and my Mom was SO good at it. I feel like Ezra's going to miss out on a little fun in life if I don't get my butt in gear. How about you share more Halloween ideas on your blog...and I'll do the same. HELP ME SHANNON!!! :)
