More Halloween Fun!






I really enjoy Halloween - when our kids were little it was one of our favorites. My husband I would make their costumes every year and each year we would try to out do the last. The kids loved it just as much and still do even as early 20somethings they get "into" every year by going to or having costume parties - it makes me happy to think that our love for it has rubbed off on them as they grow. Some day when the grandkids come along the tradition will continue. I made this sign for our daughter's apartment I think came out cute - her and her roommate will love it I'm sure. All this is - is a piece of scrap wood that my husband routed and sanded for me - I just brushed on the different paint colors and the "words" are a sticker set that I found at Michael's when "B" and I were out shopping the other day. The maskes I also got at Michael's colored them in with markers and glitter and wrapped the handles to finish them off -- I will add black curling ribbon at the top of the handles to finish them off. I really like the way these come out --this is the second year that I made them - last year for the girls at work this year to take to SC when I go visit my sister and her family for Halloween Day! Easy projects with lots of impact!

They turned out great! What wonderful ideas and such talent. Loved the tip about using markers instead of paint - duh! - why didn't I think of that?
