I am excited to share a fun little group that I am in! I am in a monthly crafting group with some CRAZY talented women! Each month, we have a theme and we have to create something around that theme. I have been a slacker and haven’t participated in the group until this month. I am excited to start it up with them! Check out these amazing projects from all of them!
I love the Wizard of Oz. Honestly, I love how totally weird it is. I love the underlying values that it teaches. I love it all. I wanted to bring a little Wizard of Oz into my Halloween decor because that Wicked Witch of the West is one sassy lady! She has some really awesome quotes too. Including the ever famous, “I’ll get you, my pretty and that little dog too!” I knew I wanted to bring that into my decor. I love the simplicity of this print and the little, faded witch hat too.
This printable is for personal use only! You can get it here.
Now for the other fun part… The folks at Martha Stewart wanted to get in on the fun Halloween action and share their most recent Halloween magazine, a pumpkin witch’s cauldron tutorial AND….an AWESOME giveaway of Martha Stewart Halloween crafts!
