Halloween in a down economy

I am not the savyest of stay at home moms. I don't coupon(jenny W. says I can use this as a verb), I don't scour the Internet for the cheapest price, and I don't usually wait for sales. I do however try not to buy things I really don't need(clothes and shoes do not apply) and I only buy things that I really love- especially when it comes to holiday decorations. This Halloween I just don't feel like I have money to throw around and I couldn't even find anything to get excited about in the stores. I have resorted to crafting. Didn't even want time at the craft store so I rummaged around my craft room and the recycling and have come up with what I think are some cute little decorations(it's amazing what you find you already have to fit the season). How green I am using a cardboard box to make spooky garland :) My ever present twine and some Martha Stewart glitter stickers from Michaels. I inked the edges with brown, punched holes to string the twine through-thinkin it will look pretty cute across my kitchen window.
I already had these rub ons from previous projects. The flower frogs were a purchase several months ago from the Armadillo-loving them!

Eeeeee!!! I love it. I am obsessed with making things out of cardboard boxes, Donna Downey made a scrapbook from one and ever since, I am always longingly looking at a box wondering if I can create something. You have inspired me. I love the recyclingness of this project!
