Halloween Weathervane

If you’ve ever broken one of your favorite things, but held onto the remains in case you thought of something crafty to do with it, you might be a craft hoarder.  Such is the story of this project by self-admitted packrat Vivienne from The V Spot, who tucked away a broken weathervane for future use.  Her decision to turn it into Halloween decor is fabulous, and her incorporation of a dollar store pumpkin and skeleton definitely doesn’t read as cheap.  Budget-friendly, elegant holiday decor that keeps a broken item out of the landfill?  It’s a double win!  [how to make a Halloween weathervane]
