I just wanted to make something easy and fun this week, something I could construct while I listened to Spotify and turned off my brain. You probably know that November isn’t my favorite month of the year, and my head is on cruise control until we pass Madeline’s birthday on the 11th. Still, I find…

I know, I know, Halloween stuff already. But I thought of this idea back in June and I’ve been so excited to try it. With October only two weeks away (aaaaah!), I thought I’d share how I made these for anyone who’s ready to get a jump on things.
