halloween decorations part one

Halloween witch door hanger

Our household is getting VERY excited with Halloween fast approaching. With a Halloween craft party for little girls next Friday, we've started to decorate the front door with 'BOO' letters purchased from our local art shop and then painted in bright orange acrylic paint. The gorgeous flouro green witch is from Middleburg on Etsy. 'Witchie' is hand-made from papier mache over wood with red wool hair that my daughter plaited and looking quite green around the gills!
