I have decided that now that I have a child, I want holidays to be super fun and that includes decorating the house. However, I am a cheap person and don't want to spend a lot of money, so instead I spend a lot of time on Pinterest looking at crafts and figuring out how I can do them with materials I already have.
This past week I completed my October Wreath, the Bat Wall, a Candy Corn Garland, and a Halloween printable for a frame.
For our "scary" (as Ani calls it every time she walks by it) wreath I used a cheap floral wreath, gauze, ribbon, and a scary centerpiece. And of course I used my hand dandy glue gun.
For the Bat Wall, I googled bat template and printed it off in two sizes, then I just used construction paper and cut a bunch out and attached them to the wall with sticky tack. LOVE THAT STUFF! I bent the wings out to give it more of a 3D effect. Aniston is just a wee bit obsessed with them.
For my Candy Corn Garland, I used paper plates, yellow paint, orange and white construction paper, a hole punch and black yarn. Seriously... cheapest woman ALIVE! I painted the paper plates yellow and cut out my circles to start with.
I love having more time to spend at home and to be crafty with my house and family! Wait until you see Miss Aniston Kate's A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E Halloween costume I am making. I promise you are gonna LOVE it!
