277. hanging ghosts.

Keeping up with the halloween decor this week, I made these hanging ghosts I saw on pinterest. I went to target on my lunch break and bought some spray starch and cheesecloth, and made these little guys for under $4! The tutorial calls for taping some dixie cups and a styrofoam ball, but I just improvised to do something similar using glasses we already had in the house, and crumpled foil in place of the ball. I had to let these dry overnight, and when I came home today I glued on the eyes and hung them going up the stairs. BOO!

276. bat garland.

In honor of my favorite holiday….Milo and I worked on this simple bat garland. I saw something like it on pinterest.  I cut the flags from newspaper, pasted bats to them, and then put an orange button in the middle of each bat. Glued it on some yarn, and hung it over the fireplace. Bring on halloween!
