Below is the broom I made! The lights are red Christmas Lights, the skeleton was an old decoration we had, and we purchased the mums and pumpkin with coupons and discounts.
A Dining Room Art Update. This was FREE. I used leftover black scrapbook paper and
printed free Halloween printables I found here onto card stock from the stash.
The Spiders on magnets were a Pinterest inspired project found on the
blog Delia Creates. They were a huge success.
The window shadows were probably my favorite. I found these on Better Home and Garden website. The templates were free and I only needed to buy the black poster board. I loved how they looked back lit with lamps. I don't have pictures, but the kitchen window had Frankenstein and Dracula.
And the Costumes! Matt was Abraham Lincoln the Vampire Hunter. The shirt was a Marshall's purchase, just so he wouldn't mess up his nice white french cuff shirt at the Halloween party we went to on Saturday night. The hat was $12 at a costume shop, bow tie was also purchased at Marshall's and everything else we had! The rather large wood stake was in the garden holding up my tomatoes this summer - it's bloodied up with a red sharpie. It's big because we needed something proportioned to Matt, he's tall without a top hat.
And I apparently chose one of the most popular adult costumes of 2012. There were two others at the party we went to! I can't say any of us was better than the other, but if we pooled all our items together, it would have made a great Katniss Everdeen. I do need to point out, I was the only one with the braid. Which you can't see in this photo. Bummer.
And that folks is Halloween 2012 at 18 Preston. Next up - Thanksgiving! Which is my favorite Holiday next to the 4th of July. Let the planning begin.
