Hey everyone! Hope y'all had a great weekend. It's really starting to feel like Fall here, and I've started decorating for Halloween. I can't remember the last time I did anything but turn on the porch light. We rarely get any trick or treaters, but this year, I've noticed more children in the neighborhood, so I'm hoping.
Since I didn't have any decorations, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money, I looked for easy things to make. Here's what I just finished.
You may have seen this on the Better Homes and Garden website...you can click HERE to see the instructions.
Mine is slightly larger, because I couldn't find a 12 inch straw wreath, so I used a 14 inch one. I also added a bow on top to cover the door hook.
The wreath was easy to make, but a little time consuming.
I spent about three hours Saturday night, wrapping yarn around the wreath, watching the football game and fuming, while Georgia lost to South Carolina...Big time! At least I had something constructive to do. :)
Let me give you a peek at some other decorations I'm working on...really easy ones, because I like easy.
...spray painting things white and black...
...cutting out spooky paper cats...
...and bats...does it look like the signal for Batman? Hmmm. Maybe I need to re-think this one.
There are some spooky creatures around the house. You better watch out...
I still have decorating to finish, so I'll show you more next time.
Hope y'all have a great week. I'm partying with ~
