More Halloween Crafting

A few years ago, I bought this 'bird-on-a-finial-thing'.
I intended, from the beginning, to use it for Halloween.
I finally did something about it this year.
I needed to make new feet (for this raven I already had) that would cling to the sphere.


Next, we went down to Hobby Lobby and bought a few of their paper mache houses......
so the girls could make these:






Below, I finally added a few goodies to the Shop again. : )

I hope you're enjoying the Halloween season!!!

My goodness, you did a great job on the raven. I have not been to Michael's lately. Love the way the houses turned out. Gives me an idea for some fabric applied decor.
