Can you believe Halloween is just around the corner? Lucky for you if you're still scrambling for some festive decor ideas then you're going to love today's project!
But then again Kim from Simply Living rocks at all her projects.
Seriously, I tell no lies my friends. See for yourself......
Hi, I am Kim and I blog at Simply Living, I love creating things and am really excited to share a Halloween craft with you today! Thank you so much, Jennifer, for letting me be
a part of Wicked Craft Week!!
I love Halloween, it is such a fun holiday to decorate for, you can go so many directions with it, creepy or cute, spooky or sweet, I just love all Halloween themes really! But, one thing that I especially love this time of year is candy corn.  It is something you either love or hate as far as the candy goes, but I think we can all agree that they are super cute! :)  So, today I wanted to share a super easy candy corn halloween flag I made for my flower bed.

I just love the way a little garden flag can add a some personality to the front of your house.  This one didn't take long to make, with just a few simple steps.

First, I cut a piece of material 12" by 21"

Then I sewed around the edge of the fabric and frayed them out. 

Once I had the fabric done, I cut out a candy corn shape from felt.  I lined up the felt and kind of just sketched a shape with a sharpie then cut it out.  

Then I cut three pieces of felt about 3" long, and glued the top and bottom to the back side of the fabric, in order to insert the flag rod through.

Finally, I used the fabric glue again, to attach the candy corn to the fabric, then hung it up! That's it! So simple, and there are so many variations you could to too, I thought a ghost or an owl would be cute, maybe a witches hat.  Not only is this easy, but it's really inexpensive as well.  Sometimes the flags you buy at the store can be pricey, but this is cheap and one of a kind! :) 
I love the gray chevron against the bright orange and yellow.  I think a giant candy corn says "Hey, this house is ready for Halloween!" :)
Thank you again, Jennifer, for letting me share here today, I just love reading your blog, and was so happy to be a part of your Wicked Craft Week! 
I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween! 
High five Kim! You've totally inspired me to add DIY garden flags to my crafting to-do list and I am head over heels in love with the whole pumpkin space you've got going on outside of your home.
More spooky fun coming your way tomorrow! Be here or be square.

I tried to post earlier, but my phone was being wonky, grr...

I love this idea, but I've got to adapt it somehow...our landscaping is pretty atrocious right now and the last thing I want to do is draw attn to it! ...maybe if I made a REALLY GIANT flag to just cover the whole weedy area........hmm..... ;)

Great project, thanks for sharing!!
