However, I did take on two crafty projects this season. One was a wreath for the front door. Last year I received a purple and black tulle wreath as a gift and it had the letters KSU on the bottom. A couple months ago, I found this link on Pinterest:
So here's what I did:
Flipped it around. Yep. I left the letters on, just flipped it over.
Cut some scary teeth out of white felt. And I even already had the felt!
Bought a pack of ping pong balls for $1.26 and colored eyes on with a Sharpy.
For the teeth, I busted out the trusty hot glue gun and glued them on to the back of the wreath.
For the eyes, I stuck tooth picks into the ping pong balls and the stuck the other end in to the wreath (which had a styrofoam base).
Rowan refers to it as the "Fluffy Purple Monster". In hind sight, I wish I would have used a different color for the teeth. However, next spring I'd like to pain the front door a peacock blue, so by next Halloween it won't make any difference!
There's something very Muppet-esque about this guy. I love it!
The other project I whipped up quick was a revamp of my Tree of Seasons. I've done a few posts in the past on it, but here's what it looked like last year for Halloween:
For Christmas last year I received the Create a Critter 2 cartridge for my Cricut machine and have been putting it to good use for this tree. For this year, I made two new critters in much better costumes and added a much better looking jack-o-latern.
I'm so much more in love with it this year! And look at the cute little trick-or-treat bags! Maybe next year I'll add a spider hanging from the tree.
Since we're leaving this weekend to visit my parents for two weeks, I think this is all the craftiness that I'll be doing for Halloween this year.
Next up, Thanksgiving!
