Each year I like to create a memorable halloween party invites for our annual Halloween party. The first year we had the party I found the Martha stewart fingers in the boxes and we did that. The next year I decided to try and come up with something on my own and ended up with a creepy box full of googly eyes(I have a link to these somewhere under the halloween catergory :) ) Last year me and my daughter created a creepy skeeleton tomb from a 16 oz bottle and was able to mail it in the bottle to the kids. The loved getting a bottle in the mail..LOL It costs me about $1.25 to mail each one. This year's invitation will be:
CROWS flying the invite to the kids.
I found crows at the dollar store.
I printed off the invitations
Rolled up the invite
Used the crows wire feet to hold the invite in place
and now I'm searching for a suitable container to mail them in.
Here they are waiting to fly off and deliver the invites. Ready...Set...Fly
This was the easiest invitation to put together so far. I think the kids will enjoy their messenger crows when they receive them in the mail.

I created this felt werewolf halloween ornament for a swap at 2peas. He is created with grey felt, grey fur and black eyes. I made up the pattern myself and I think he turned out so cute...well as cute as a werewolf can be. The fur really makes him look like a werewolf. I started with gray felt in the shape of a werewolf head with ears. Then I sewed on a layer of gray fur along the top of the head. Then I stitched a piece of light gray felt cut in the shape of a U for the face. Then cut circles for the eyes, half circles for the eyelids, triangle for the nose, mouth shape, and teeth shape out of felt and then stitched them on with the machine. Last thing I did was sew on a hanger and some black bead eyes.
