Too Cute Too Spook @ MAWTT

Mornings all! 
It is that time again! 
Time for a new challenge at 

Debs is challenging us this week with ... 
Too Cute Too Spook
We wanna see cute Halloween!

Halloween is actually not a big tradition / celebration in Australia.  As a child I never went trick or treating nor did any of the kids in the street.  I never saw shops decorate their windows for the occasion either.  But as time goes on (and I get older) it seems to be beginning to make it's mark on our culture and a few people (or should I say children and retail business) are beginning to embrace the idea.   Hubby has always been a stick in the mud in regards to this tradition too but as I have a hallway table to decorate with 'the current season', the kids and I have voted that this year we are decorating for Halloween (I say decorating as I draw the line at trick or treating, but have promised the kids a little something special treat on the night).    

So to get the table started, every witches haunted house needs a spooky cute hat! 

I was having a thing for red, black and white this day :$  The paper hat is made from Graphic 45 Papers from the Wizard Of Oz range, it has faint spider webs all over it, so I thought it appropriate for the occasion and it has been in my stash since last year so it's about time I stopped 'saving it'.  The lace and the ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are homemade from silk with beads sewn into the center.  The beady blingy swirly's are also homemade using the same beads used in the flower centers with some white wire and glue gun.  I am so in love with this piece and can not wait to get the hallway table set up!  I think it is going to look excellent and I think I may even have DH slightly excited as he has asked for a wizards hat on the table!!!

Awww absolutely perfect!! I love this witches hat! And yes, a wizards hat next to it would be very nice.. Good to see he caved a little..
I too live in Aust, but have been lucky enough that my neighbours were always open to kids trick or treating!
Annd now with children as my own, the estate we live in all celebrate with a set time of two hours to trick or treat and then a massive block party at one house afterwards for a bbq and costume judging... Its great!
Thanks again for linking up with us at Glitter n Sparkle..
