This photo book was made through Paper Coterie, which sadly doesn’t exist anymore. I still wanted to share because it is a great example of using basic blocks of color, Halloween quotes and simple layouts to create a fun book representing October/ Halloween adventures.

a little halloween decor

Halloween decorations-1

I created this with various Halloween supplies I had lying around ( bingo cards, stars, stickers, tags, boxes, ribbon, glittered trees, bells, plastic spiders, plastic skeletons) with the addition of some photos (both in color and black and white). When it comes together, it creates a fun decoration.Halloween decorations-2 Halloween decorations-3

Start by using 2″ square cubes from Michaels, JoAnn’s or even online.  Cut various patterned Halloween paper into 2″ x 2″ squares. Find those precious October/ Halloween photos and cut into 2″ x 2″ squares. Adhere with Modge Podge or Aleene’s tacky glue using a foam brush. Finally, you have the perfect Halloween keepsake for a table or shelf.
