Fun And Whimsical Halloween Lantern Swag

I wanted to show you a Halloween lantern swag I recently made for one of my good customers. She asked me if I could make one for her and of course I wanted to accomodate! I actually made two of these and sold the other one before I could list it in my shop!
 
My supplies came from all over..but the witch hat and most of the ribbon are from Hobby Lobby.
 
 Love the glittered pumpkins and glittered curly sticks from Michael's.
 
Oh how I can't wait to start Christmas!!! I have so many ideas for these.
 
I am going to Dallas on Sunday and will be back Wednesday. I am going to market to look for several things including Christmas items. I will be shutting down my Etsy store for a few days starting Sunday. There are still a few things left, but I haven't added much since I'm leaving. If you would like something I can ship it out tomorrow. I am finishing up custom orders and will be on my way!
 
 I will be updating my facebook page while I'm in Dallas so come along with me!
 
Have a great weekend!

Kristen,
You did a beautiful job on this lantern! I still enjoy your Thursday parties even though I don't always get a chance to link up!
Hope you are having a great week!

If you are going to market, PLEASE look for another heart accent. I'd love to order a frame with it.
