Today I am joining up with a bunch of other bloggers to share projects made with our Cricuts. A while ago we all got a box filled with lots of fun stuff, different kinds of vinyl and paper as well as some other things. At the end of this post you can see all of the projects that everyone made as well as enter a giveaway to win the same box that we got. Our challenge was to make something using at least one of the products in the box. It wasn't really a challenge to come up with and idea, for me the more challenging part was to choose which idea I was going to go with. One of the products in the box was something I had never used before, in fact I had never even seen it before. It is a faux leather that is really thin so that it can be cut with a regular blade. You don't need a deep cut blade like you would to cut real leather. I thought it seemed like it would be something fun to try. The other thing is I felt like the textures and colors had a very fall feel so it seemed seasonally appropriate.

Halloween is such a fun time to have family movie nights, there are so many fun movies that you can watch together and when you do it is always nice to have some treats to eat. I thought it would be fun to make a Halloween themed bowl that you could use for treats while you watch a movie and it can double as a candy bowl for trick-or-treaters later. I decided to make a ghost bowl since ghosts are pretty classic for Halloween and with the new Ghostbusters movie coming out on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD yesterday, that would be a fun option for your family movie night and a ghost bowl would go along with it perfectly. The extended version even has an extra 15 minutes not seen in theaters as well as more than 3 hours of hilarious extras.

Halloween is just around the corner and it is time to start thinking about costumes if you haven't already. I enjoy making costumes for my kids and it is especially fun (and easy) to put together cute little costumes for babies. This is my newest little guy's first Halloween and he will only be 3 months old so I was trying to think of a cute and easy halloween costume idea for little babies. You really want them to be comfortable and warm so a long sleeved bodysuit seemed like the perfect place to start.

Earlier this year my little sister made a bunch of baby hats and I thought that they were so cute that I had to share them. She made them on a knitting loom and finished them with crochet details, little stems and leaves to make them look like different kinds of fruit. I thought it was really neat how she turned a simple loom knit hat into so many different, cute designs. A pumpkin, an apple, a watermelon, and lots of others. I don't have directions for how she made each one but I thought I would show pictures of them and maybe they will inspire someone to make some cute, loom knit hats of their own.

Since it is the beginning of a new month that means it is time for a new Fairfield World pattern. This is the last of the set of matching halloween decorations I have been working on. First was a Jack o' Lantern, then a black cat, and now a Frankenstein.
