I can't wait to see them outside and all lit up!:

And although I haven't made this Halloween garland yet, I'm thinking that I'm gonna: (Assuming I can get my house properly cleaned in time, that is...)

The votives are cute! I'm glad you got a chance to make them. I made my feather wreath, which I'll post photos of, but didn't finish my skull garland. Perhaps it'll be a craft project after Halloween to use next year.
