Halloween Fun

Even though Halloween isn't very big here in Australia, it's been slowly growing each year and we see more and more decorations and costumes about. I found this great free printable book cover HERE and thought it was a fun idea! You just print it out and cover any book (I've used a plain old notebook). The beauty is when Halloween is over, you can take the cover off and fold it away until next year.
On the back it says "A Witch's work is never done!"
I've also made this small wall quilt full of pumpkins and witches.
More cute than scary I think!
I've just been to visit Amanda's blog and she has some wonderful links for making pumpkins - LOTS of different pumpkins!!! Might have to try and fit in a pumpkin to sit next to my Witch's book!
Hope you are all having a wonderful, creative week!

Hi Terese:
I agree with you, your quilt is more cute than scary, but I like more in this way, really beautiful!

Halloween is certainly picking up momentum in Australia now. My daughter is going out trick or treating for the first time this year.

Ooooh so cute, not like the scarey stuff I saw at Mad Harrys yesterday. The schools here in Alice must be celebrating, as the shop was full of kids getting Halloween stuff. Love Mum
