Let's prepare Halloween !

Hello everybody ! Michele Beck here, from France !

I know in USA, Halloween is something really appreciated :)
Here, in France, since a few years, we can notice a little start, and i am very happy, cause i LOVE Halloween !
I love decorating my home with creepy things, and now that my daughters are taller, it's easier to go outside to collect candy. OK, i think I'll have to buy my own candy to fill my daughter's bag !lol ! as i told you, it's a little start here...

I have lots of fun making some projects with the Boo-tiful line to decorate my home ! You'll see, the last one, you could make it with your children, really easy and fun !
let's see it :

Aren't this ghost too cute ?! i love it !

Aren't this witch's hat tooooo cute too ? and see how it's simple to make it:

First, cut a half-circle, dimension of your choice, it depends of how big you want to make your hat. Cut some little pieces to add your glue after, then glue it to obtain this, a cone:

In another paper, cut a circle, and hollow out a smaller circle like this:

Cut another circle, taller than the hole and cut like this:

Glue it on the last circle with the hole:

and bend the paper like this:

Now, all you have to do is to add the cone you made earlier, add some ink and embellishments, bend a little the hat to give this crazy look, and that's it !

See?! it's simple and fun ! now make yours, and share it here ! I'd love to see it !
Thanks for reading me,
Have a great month !
