Getting all "Pinterest" up in here!

My fave hobby of the year has been the discovery of and working on my online bulletin board "collages".  It definitely has lit the DIY spark in me for everything from holiday decor to trying new recipes to sewing Halloween costumes and planning parties for the kiddies.

Special shout out to the Martha Stewart collection at JoAnn fabric for helping me achieve the DIY-look I was craving, haha! *cheater* So I'll also share where I found my finds, like a good little blogger.

Mantle decor
Fall berry garland: Paul Michaels in Canton, Texas, $10ish last year
Wire pumpkin candle holder: Gift, Kohl's
Quatrefoil candle holder with mango candle: Bath and body works
Toile planter and faux flowers: Michaels, last year
Fleur-de-lis knick knack, part of a set gifted to us, Kirklands
Hurricane: Hobby Lobby, filled with decorative balls from Pier One, and Candy Corn

Mini pumpkins: $3 each, Target
Mickey Jackolantern: gift from Lolli, Walgreens
Green glitter skull: $1, Target Dollar Spot
Scarecrow crunch: Quaker Oats cereal, mini pretzels, raisins, candy corn, Reese's pieces, and orange flavored popcorn (from Pop It!)

Fruit kabobs: strawberries, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, grapes
Cheese & Ritz kabobs: pre-cut mini cheese "sandwiching" a Ritz
Skeleton & Pumpkin picks: Martha Stewart collection, JoAnn Fabric (super sale with coupon)

Pin the nose on the witch was a HUGE hit. Note to self -- next party, make 30 noses instead of 8. The kids had a total blast spinning in a circle three times then pinning the nose on the witch. Each kid's pin got major giggles. (Speaking of pins, I suggest you "pin" these fun ideas to your Pinterest boards! hehe)
 Green and black posterboard, Dollar Tree ($0.50 each)
Black & red marker: in my craft closet
Crayola mini's glitter : in my craft closet
Noses: Fun foam, Dollar Tree, $1 for a pack of 12 sheets
