When the candy corn comes out in the stores, Halloween is not far behind.  For my project today, I did a 12 x 12 inch layout of the first bag of candy corn of the season.  It’s completely gone already of course, but I still have the picture!  I used Echo Park’s Bewitched Collection Kit for the entire page except for some older Thickers I had in my drawer for the title.

Beaded Spider Tutorial

I have never really minded spiders, and will usually let them be, as long as they keep there distance. I mean if they stay up in their corner, or on the ceiling, I am totally fine, but the second they start hanging off the ceiling, they are gone. Here is one spider that you won’t want to squish.

Free Pattern – Crochet Spider and Web Poncho

By Guest Blogger, Liz Meehan, from the blog, Crafty Woman Shop

Hi! My name is Liz and I’m the woman behind Crafty Woman Shop. I first picked up a crochet hook during the spring after my daughter was born. With the help of YouTube videos, I quickly caught on to the craft and began making items ranging from baby headbands to amigurumi. The items I made were either for my daughter, myself, or as gifts to others. Time and again, friends and family would tell me I should start sharing and selling my creations. After a few years of telling myself I would open up shop, here I finally am! I design both free and paid patterns, and today I am sharing a fun Halloween design that I hope you will enjoy creating!

Well it seemed like it was finally summer, but now fall has quickly rushed in.

Not that I have anything against fall. It is almost tied with summer for being my favorite season. Mild weather, fall foliage, holidays, deliciously scented candles (apple pie, anyone?), seasonal desserts (again, apple pie anyone?)…. I’m sure we can all think of many reasons why fall is so great. The only drawback is the winter chill that begins to creep in, but I guess a positive to this is having an even better reason to crochet!

Halloween is also creeping around the corner, which is a good reason to stretch my creativity into designing some bizarre creations. This week I decided to sit down and design a spider web poncho. I even took it a step further and made a black widow spider to go along with it.

Halloween Treat Tags

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on her blog Blue Scallop Creations and on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

I love making tags almost as much as cards.  They’re quick to make and you can still use all your fun scrapbook and stamping supplies—just on a smaller scale!  Halloween is always a fun time for tags because of all the fun candy treats you can attach them to.  In today’s post I show you ways to use up those piles of “googly” eyes you may have hiding in your craft room.  I know I have a ton and they seem to multiply.
