Happy Halloween

In case you need some last minute Halloween ideas, here are a few of my favorites....

I used this one last year and again last Thursday night for a fundraising event at our local art museum.  Instead of making the cut-out bats, I purchase a bag of decorative halloween pieces that I found for about $4.00.  It consisted of plastic skeletons, bats, and spiders that I hung off the branches.

 If you like wreaths, here is a cute idea:

 And in the spirit of Halloween, I came up with the card below to let my friends know I moved recently. I wanted to get my change of address out before the holidays begin (so all the fun Christmas cards come to the correct address).  It took a lot of treats to get the boys to pose, but it worked!
