Getting Ready For Salem

My family and I absolutely love Salem, MA during the fall season. There is nothing like it to get you in the autumnal holiday mood! Pumpkins, hot cider, "witchy" little shops, Salem has it all! Many people walk around in costume and Halloween themed clothing. Of course, the most prevalent thing to abound is the witch hat! So this year, my daughters had asked me to make them special witch hats to bring to Salem, and of course, I had to make one for me too!

Mine's the red one! They were quite easy to make. Target had the hats at a very reasonable price and I just embellished with various feathers, flowers, and trinkets! Have a beautifully bewitching day!


  1. i will look for you in salem! i will recognize the hats!

  2. I love the hats you created for your trip to Salem. All of this sounds like great fun to me.
    Thanks for stopping by my "swap partners" and leaving such a nice comment. The boxes are wood matches boxes, large size 250 count. These boxes can be found typically in grocery stores or dollar stores. The boxes are crafted on the outside. These matchbox swaps are great fun.
    Let me know if I can be of more help to you.
    Have a great weekend.

  3. Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I adore your hats, they are gorgeous! Have fun in Salem...that's someplace I've always wanted to visit. xo

  4. Your witch hats are wonderful!!Have a great time in Salem and a wonderful weekend.

  5. Thank you Michele for the matchbox info! I am itching to go buy some and get creative with them! :) And thanks for the comment Kim! You should go someday! Salem is unlike any other place, especially in October! :)

  6. Beautiful hats, they are wonderful! I noticed you showed some interest in Michele's wonderful matchboxes. In addition to Heather's spectacular swaps I also host a flickr swap group. Stop by and check it out. Right now you'll be treated to pics of swapped Halloween art.

  7. Fabulous hats, and perfect for Salem. I visited there many moons ago, around Halloween time. I went with my female cousin, and we had a hoot of a time. Take photos and post them for us, we would love to see them!
