I stepped up to the challenge this month too!
Here is what I did for Halloween.
I got the templates off allsorts here and just tied them to a couple of those creepy cloths from the dollar store.

I like how it turned out and it was super easy to do.
On to the next one.
Since I don't have many decorations for Thanksgiving, I thought I'd make one of those gorgeous fabric swags I've seen on other people's blogs.
I used pinking shears and cut and cut and cut a ton of swatches from my fall colored fabrics. All those fat quarters people have sent me in swaps got used up! Note to anyone doing this...RIP the fabric...my hands were sore for DAYS after making it!
I didn't use a tutorial, but afterwords found several and they ALL suggested you rip the fabric *sigh*
I'm very pleased with it.
Right now I have it draped on a table but once Halloween is over, I'll put it up on the mantel through Thanksgiving.

Now I just need some cool weather!
