I went out and bought the Martha Stewart Halloween issue and I found this great idea for making big cartoonish spiderwebs with some thick cord (on the package it was called "cotton clothesline") and I have to say it turned out awesome. And it was cheap and easy.
I brought out Harry and hung him up over the door... very effective. Then Grant dragged Matilda out from the shed for me and we plunked her on the doorstep. I was afraid to move her myself - she is a little rough after spending the winter in the shed where she seems to have had some critters bunking in and around her. But after the hours of work I spent on her last fall I decided to dust her off (with rubber gloves on) and set her up as the welcoming committee again.
Now I just have to hang my lights, board up my windows (with cardboard ;), put up the caution tape, make some KEEP OUT signs and carve my pumpkins. And maybe I need a flood light...
Okay I LOVE this super-easy, super-cheap googly eyes picture frame project I came across on Pinterest. My frame turned out AWESOME and I am thinking about using it with a different picture in my son's room after Halloween because it can totally work with some of the googly-eyed monster/alien theme I have started in there.
Step 1: Buy unfinished wooden frame from Michaels ($1) and a large package of multiple sizes of googly eyes ($5)
Step 2: Paint frame with a Martha Stewart colour wash glaze (1 part paint, 2 parts water, 1 part glazing medium)
Step 3: Glue googly eyes all over frame
Step 4: Insert super cheesy (and heavily photo-shopped) photo of you and your husband dressed up as Gomez and Morticia Adams
