Halloween Plates

Hello friends!  Here's a little glimpse of what I've been up to lately. 

Between homeschooling, housework, cooking, and cleaning, I've managed to sneak in a little craft project just in time for the Halloween season.

We don't celebrate Halloween in our house but I do enjoy these fun little decorations.  

These chargers are from Hobby Lobby.  I picked up others in different colors.  I plan on making more of these for Thanksgiving and Christmas. .

 I made these with my new Silhouette Cameo.  Love it!  It took a while to learn how to use it.  I managed to ruin a couple of vinyl sheets in the process but I think I'm doing okay now.

Although I did spend a whole afternoon on the first one, the rest of these came together fairly quickly.  

I'm ready to make more.  I'm very pleased with the way they turned out.  They're much prettier in person.  You know how hard it is to photograph a black plate?  It's not easy.  Or maybe I just have a dumb camera.
Til next time,
