Making It With Allie

Halloween is coming!
And I am SO excited!
September 1 came around and I didn't care how hot that attic was!
I was getting out the Halloween!

So, I have had the thought for a while that I wanted to have a miniature tree with birds and some spooky headstones.
But have you seen the price on those positional trees, lately??
I can't stomach $30 or even half that with a coupon...
So, I decided I could grab some paper covered floral wire and make one.
And I think it turned out pretty great!
AND it only took half an hour!!
Yay! for me for doing it for $2.99!
Now I need to decide if it gets a coat of black paint and/or superfine black glitter....
Any suggestions?

Here it is with some little birds, headstones and piles of bones:

Now, I'm off to finish some more Halloween decorating!

Here's a sneak peak of what I am working on:
