Ginger Snap Crafts: A “Boo”tiful Front Entry for Halloween #makeitfuncrafts

A “Boo”tiful Front Entry for Halloween #makeitfuncrafts

This post is brought to you by Make It: Fun® Crafts.

Good morning! I am so excited to announce that I have extended my relationship with Make It: Fun® Crafts. I will be on board for another 6 months bringing you easy tutorials each month that you can do too! Recently Make It: Fun® Crafts released a fun Halloween E-book full of fun ideas to decorate your home this year. You can check it all out {HERE}. Our challenge this month was to pick a project of two from this e-book, put our own twist on it & share that with you! So today I am excited to show you how I made this “Boo”tiful Front Entry for Halloween inspired by Make It Fun Crafts. Enjoy!
