Halloween Butterflies
Halloween Butterflies

We have a small, somewhat awkward corner niche in our new apartment. Since we moved in about three months ago, I’ve been searching for something that will look great in this space, but I haven’t found anything that I love yet for year ’round display. However, after I saw the October issue of Martha Stewart Living, I had my inspiration for Halloween. I talk more about my pumpkin obsession and show the pictures that inspired me on my personal blog, Domestifluff.

In order to create the display, I purchased a butterfly paper punch, made a quick butterfly template in a few sizes, and got to punching and cutting out cardstock. I used Zots to attach the butterflies to the wall and the pumpkin, and I really like how it came out! This small project has definitely gotten the wheels turning, and I can’t wait to work on my next holiday display!

I’m a huge fan of papercutting and love finding new artists in this genre. Fog and Thistle creates lovely, evocative papercuts that feature bunnies, trees, and fairytale scenes. Right up my alley! They sell both actual papercuts and prints of their work at the Fog and Thistle Etsy shop.

Also check out these super cute free printable seasonal trees tags from Fog and Thistle. The winter trees would make perfect gift tags for holiday gifts. Actually, any of the trees would be a great addition to your holiday gift wrap schemes. Download the PDF here. Tags spotted at How About Orange.

I’m really digging these Halloween and Thanksgiving letterpress cards from Spark Stationery. Not only are they beautifully designed, but they also have the snark going on. And isn’t vampire doggie, a.k.a. Halloween Henry, adorable? See all of Spark’s holiday cards, including Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year designs, here.
