Halloween Pennant

     I am so excited for Halloween. Except that I live in a basement so I can't really decorate at all, so that has been kind of a bummer. But we just found out we can move into the town-home that we are going to rent on Oct. 25th! I was so excited, I immediately went on Pinterest and looked for Halloween stuff. 
I didn't want anything too difficult or expensive since it basically will be seen for like six days. So I came across this super cute pennant banner at Organize and Decorate Everything
Here is her freakin' cute one!

It really was so easy. All you need is some card-stock. So it was way cheap to make. I had everything on hand already. I made mine a tiny bit different than the original. I didn't do the owl and I did a mummy instead of the ghost. 

Yeah mine is hanging over a door frame. Kinda ghetto. But as I said, I live in a basement and don't have a cute little mantle. When we move it is going to go in this window by the door along with my Jar-O'-Lanterns I made last year. It is going to be so cute, I can't wait. I will show you a picture of it when I move. 

Can I tell you how excited I am to move. My MIL has been so great to let us live with her for a few months, and the basement has been pretty great, but I am getting a little stir crazy. I need my own space. I have barely crafted like the whole 6 months we have been there cause I just have no motivation, I think, what the heck am I going to do with this once I finish it? It will just get ruined waiting to be hung up, so I haven't been able to create anything.  I am also like in crazy baby nesting phase but can't do anything, so I am having a hard time and getting anxious cause I haven't really prepared for the baby that well...  So Oct. 25th, you can't come fast enough!
