The other day my son asked me why we’ve never decorated for Halloween.
“Son, when I can get dinner on the table every night then maybe I’ll start thinking about decorating for Halloween…” is what I wanted to say but didn’t.
Holiday decorating hasn’t ever really been high on my priority list but for kids there’s something magical about seeing the house all decked out.
I decided to start with my outside chalkboard…surprise, surprise.
I made up a couple of printables that I copied on to a transparency and shot up on my overhead projector then traced with chalk.
(Feel free to download and print).
Next, taking a page from Anu’s latest Mod Painted Pumpkin project I made some of my own.
I had some gold spray paint left over from my 3M Lamp Makeover so I glammed up some pumpkins.
I’ll admit, once you get started on holiday decorating it’s hard to stop.
I even got carried away made a modern foo-foo Halloween wreath which I’ll share this week too.
