Some inspiring Fall and Halloween projects

This is my very last Halloween post...I promise!  I have to admit, I am getting a little sick of seeing Halloween decorations.  I think I am ready for Christmas!  I am working on more Thanksgiving decor as well.  Sometimes that holiday gets overlooked, don't you think?  Here are some pictures of all my Fall and Halloween crafts I  have made recently.  I love to decorate, so enjoy!

These blocks are one of my favorite decorations.  My teenage daughter carved the pumpkin.  Nice, huh?
Super easy paper tags.  I used cheap stamps, scalloped paper punch and ribbon!

This card was easy with a scalloped paper punch and I printed out the phrase.

I usually don't like skeletons, but these are kinda cute little guys.
Another easy card with scalloped paper punch and scrapbook paper.
These little matchbox paper pads are super easy to make.  Should I do a tutorial on how to make these?

Love these vintage Halloween images.  There is tons of free images on the Internet.
More lovely Halloween vintage images.  I got these from Etsy.
Simple 2 x 2 cards made with scrapbook paper and cheap Halloween stamp.
I made these with those foam stickers.  I think I got them at JoAnns.
These were simple to make with clear stamps I got at JoAnns.

The letters were made with cardstock, cut from my Cricut.  Old frame I spray painted.  Cute little spider sticker I have had forever!
I bought the grapevine wreath at Micheal's for $2.50.  Leaves were about $2. 
Topiary I made with this tutorial.
Trick or Treat wreath I made with this tutorial.
I got this idea from several people's blogs.  Love how it turned out!
This is one of my favorites!  I bought the plaque at SA, sprayed it with black spray paint, and added paper, feather boa, and made the cute little ribbon rosette.  The phrase was a die cut I bought last year on clearance after Halloween!

Have a great Halloween!  I have some awesome Thanksgiving ideas coming soon.
