A Halloween Copycat

I love Halloween.
I get so excited to decide what to make or buy for Halloween each year.

This year I 'copy cat'ed from Crate and Barrell, Pottery Barn Kids, and blogs.
I always love C&B and PBK's holiday things, but they are too expensive.
So I copy cat.
Here are my creations.

Spooky Wreath
I had the black tulle, the embroidery ring, and the random piece of orange fabric.
Idea found here.

'Going Batty' Pillow
I had the black felt and the velcro.
Idea found here.

Spiderweb Table Runner
I loved this from Crate and Barrell. It took a long time, and I had blisters from my scissors.
But I love it!

Halloween Advent Calendar
I loved this from PBkids, didn't want to pay $60, I, along with some neighbors made them.
It is my favorite thing!
At PB kids they hung it from a tree branch. I JUST finished it, so I am not going to do that until next year... who wants to save a branch!


Now I have to finish stuff for a baby shower, finish costumes, and I am almost done with Merrick and Berkleigh's Halloween church outfits!

How fun! I love all the crafts. I love Halloween.. so fun! My babies are thing one and thing two this year... I just saw that your twins were too their first halloween! How funny. My oldest is going to be the cat in the hat and my 2yr old will be the fish and Josh and I are going to be the boy and the girl. You are awesome enough to have twins first. I had to have two others to break me in. I also love the help!

No need to buy the stuff if you can copy them so fantastically yourself! I can't imagine that the originals look any better. Super cute!

Your advent calendar looks way better than PB Kids! Even if it doesn't have the cat! :) You are amazing!
