It is that time of year. Ever since I made that spiderweb quilt, I’ve been channeling Halloween. When I saw this sign from Poppy Seed Projects, I knew it had to be part of my decorations. I pinned it, and the next day was working on it!
Looking around through my crapft supplies, I found a piece of plywood that would be perfect for the project, and I didn’t even have to cut it! I designed my own image using my Silhouette software and cut it out in black and orange vinyl. After I put it onto the white-painted board, I painted the black stripes over the top. I’m sure it would have been nicer with the stripes in vinyl too, but I didn’t have enough :)
It has quickly become my favorite Halloween decoration addition this year! The glitter pumpkin is from the Dollar Tree; my girls got to paint them and glitter them up this week, and they had SO much fun. Who cares about perfectly glittered pumpkins when the memory is so great, right?
When I was at Goodwill on the last 50% off day, I scored some tall wooden salt & pepper shakers for $1 for the pair. They looked a little like elongated vertebrae to me, so I painted them black, then did a quick top coat of white, and sanded down the “joints.” The crows on top were from the dollar store.
I pulled out the Free Halloween Printable from the eighteen25 gals and plopped it into a frame. I have another Printable in the works to share with you too! Can’t wait!!
Now the problem with decorating for the holidays is actually finding a place to put everything! Who wants to come build me some floating shelves and install them for me??? ;)
Are you decorating for Halloween yet? Or are you a Fall First type of person?
