Halloween 2010

I was never into Halloween until I had a kid.  This year, since P is almost 3, the holidays are becoming even more meaningful.  I'm not big on going crazy with the decorations but I am trying to add a few cool things every year.  


One of my favorite children's blogs showed how to take a jar or vase and turn it into a ghost.  When I first read the post I wasn't inspired but then I remembered my vases....the ugly ones that came with beautiful floral arrangements I've been given.  I've felt bad throwing them away. Who knows why, but anyway I now found a great use for them.  


You flip the vases or jars upside down. Then you spray them with glass frost spray and then paint the eyes and mouthes. My set of three are made up of two vases and one Grey Poupon jar.  D placed a blinking bike light in the jars to give them a spooky effect.  


I'm digging our chalk wall for holidays.  I found this blue sparkling skull head at Target yesterday for $4. My original intent was to put it on our front door.  When I got home I realized I could give our head a body....and so I did.  


I find Halloween hard to do cool and stylish.  Maybe I'm not as into this holiday as I thought. But, what I am into is making P her costumes.  This was last years!
