Halloween is my favorite holiday! Seriously, you can’t beat costumes and candy!
Disclaimer: This post has a LOT of pictures!
So much to talk about…
First – We get a lot of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood and since I had to take down my electrical tape spider web when we got our new doors, I wanted to put a little something else up to welcome them. Another spider web.I did it by just using small command hooks (so they didn’t damage the paint on the brand new doors) and twisting string around them to look like a web. Then I just hung the spider in the middle.
Next up – Pumpkins. We each got a pumpkin from Weber Farm a couple weeks ago, but we totally procrastinated on doing anything with them. Let’s start with Clark’s pumpkin.I have mentioned before that I
hoard keep tissue paper from gifts so I am always looking for new projects to use it. I got my inspiration from this blog and this blog. Here’s how I did it:
To apply them to the pumpkin, I brushed it first with Mod Podge, put the foot on top (upside-down to look like ghosts), then brushed the top of them with Mod Podge, making sure to press down the edges.
I “made” the costume out of stuff we already had. The only thing I purchased was his tail (a pair of socks from the dollar store that I stuffed with a kitchen towel).
Bob and I were stick figures.
I can’t wait till Clark can remember this holiday! I hope he loves it as much as I do!
Happy (Belated) Halloween everyone!
I’m already planning for next year. 🙂
