Be thankful that I’m not talking Christmas yet (although I am listening to Silver Bells right now…I’m just saying.) I also love Halloween. I'm sorting through what I want to do this year for Halloween. Here are some of the things I did last year...
I love to BOO! We have a few neighbors that will BOO with us. But mostly it is a quiet street. Last year I had some friends complain that I BOO-ed them on October 1st. I just wanted to be the first one to get them;) This year, I have insurance woes up the wazoo, so I’m not going to be ready until well into October. sigh. But I thought I would share what I did last year anyway. I
stole got some of these teeny containers from Rebecca and filled them with individual sprinkle type candies. I found some inexpensive pumpkin buckets and put in a candy apple kit! I had some apples, a bag of carmel, some sprinkles and of course some spiders. Sadly, this was the only picture I took I guess.
Katrina suggested I share the banner I made last year. I am seriously in love with banners/garlands. I had to restrain myself from making another one for Halloween this year;) It was just felt and Halloween fabric. I had pretty much perfected my favorite way to sew directly on the paper at that point. Old habits…I guess.
And the last thing I made last year was this little painted trio. I just used some canvas and paint. I propped them up by setting them on my recipe holder.
This year…I’m not ready. My kids are ready, but I’m not.
What are your decorations like for Halloween? What are your must do events and activities? What new things do you want to try this year?
