“Anytime I can get crafty without having to go to the store is a good day for me,” confesses Selene at Restoration Beauty. She made this pretty cloche using items she already had on hand.

With kids who are pretty much grown, Amanda can make her Halloween decor just as spooky as she wants. And what could possibly be more terrifying than Barbie Zombies?!?!?
When Sabine and her family moved into their current home, they were met by an old fence that was completely falling over. Rather than throwing all that wood into the trash bin, she decided to make a table, and shared it at Mom In Music City.
