Halloween Craft Exchange

A mom friend from school and soccer organized a 5 person craft exchange for Halloween home decor.  It's such a cool idea!  You make 5 of the same craft, then exchange them and you come out with 5 new decorations for the season.

For my craft I decided to do stacked word blocks.  They can be separated and placed around the room, or all kept together.  They are also double sided, so you can flip them around and have a November/Harvest decoration as well.

In general I like how they turned out. 
The middle one says Witches, it's better in person. 
 The top one says Autumn, and it turned out a bit too dark.
 Rachael made a Halloween tree.  It's fun to stop and look at all the leaves and their cool colors. 
 One of ladies made apothecary jars...
 Another one made this beautiful table runner, it hangs over both sides of my table. 
"Something wicked this way come!" Love this!
 Charlene made these cute rag wreaths...

Here's how I have them displayed. 

I love decorating for the seasons; this was such a cool way to acquire some new things! 

Now to start thinking of what to do for Christmas....
