Halloween decorating day is BIG around here.
They are at the perfect magical holiday ages, 3 and 6,
when a little cardboard skeleton from the dollar store
will keep them happy for weeks. or at least minutes. or at least 30 seconds.
Have I expressed my deep gratitude and love for dollar tree & $.99 Store lately?
I think I get more excited than my kids when I find stuff for $1.
We found everything you see here (except for the sign & the window)
between those 2 stores.
I made this bunting last year.
Mini pumpkins: $.99 Store.
Glittery crow: $.99 Store
Spiders on webs: Dollar Tree
Cute little owl: Doller Tree
So I feel really silly creating a tutorial for this project.
1.) For the wood: Buy an enormous piece of wainscoting from Lowe's.
Paint it white & saw it & sand it.
(Or try to get your husband to.)
Drill holes in the top.
2. Paint: Happy Halloween on it with a bunch on candy corns on the bottom.
3. Let it dry & hang!
Ha! Riveting. I know.
Now for my Halloween house tour,
masterfully curated by my 3 and 6 year old.
They were seriously, so excited about taping cardboard pictures to
the wall that I didn't have the heart to say no!
One day they will not jump up and down, giddy with anticipation,
when I pull the Halloween box out of the garage.
But today, they do, so today we are letting them have their say.
Here's Jack & Josh's Halloween-themed collage wall.
An original work.
A pumpkin family reunion.
And Jack was adamant that we put one right by the potty,
for entertainment purposes, of course.
