Last Halloween Craft

A Halloween idea the day before Halloween. Really helpful. I did these today with Cameron's preschool. They are empty Crystal Light canisters, wrapped in gauze, with little paper eyes.

No wiggly eyes, we all know why.

Creative Wall Art

I am not an artist. I don't say that to be modest. Even Cameron gets confused trying to figure out why my "elephant" looks more like an airplane. But I can paint geometric shapes on a canvas. (With the help of stencil.)

I did these awhile ago but this blog was hurting for some more posts. You can see that I got my inspiration from the shower curtain. Not fancy, but hey- it's just a bathroom.

Then I did a clock to match. It's pretty basic, but my aim here is to provide ideas. Those who are blessed enough to paint without stencils could really show me up. (They were just blank canvases from a craft store. ) Any questions? More ideas at Michael's.

Cheesecloth Ghost

The other day in exchange for watching her little girl a friend bought me the stuff to make a cheesecloth ghost. So thoughtful. It took me a few days to get around to it but here it is.

The cheesecloth cut into strips.
My "form". TIP: These arms were WAY too long. I cut them halfway through, and I still think they were too long.
The instructions said to cover it with plastic wrap. Since I am currently out of plastic wrap, I had to improvise. Yay for saving winco produce bags.
Then I put the strips into a ziploc with all the fabric stiffener and mixed it all up.
Draped the strips over the form...

And almost 24 hours later it is almost dry! One more tip: take the time to make the form just the right shape. I wasn't totally thrilled with mine. He doesn't really have a neck, but as I type this I am realizing that most ghosts don't have necks... so I guess he is just fine. Thank you Laura, I think I got this idea from you.

Easy Peasy

This idea was not my own. (They never are.) I got it from a new favorite blog called The Inspired Room.
But it was the easiest thing I have done all day. (Busy day!)
The Happy Halloween sign isn't my creation. It was done by Nikki for our card swap that I mentioned last month.
