It's Beginning to Look A lot Like Creepy...

Halloween is almost here and the kids and I have spent the past week or so decorating up the house for the occasion. We are basically done, save a few rather ambitious glittered pumpkin projects (that will most likely end in a family wide grounding from sparkles). 
We will of course burn that bridge when we come to it. 

This weekend is all about hot glue and finishing touches to various costumes and headpieces. Trying to convince my husband to rock a know, the usual scary All Hallow's activities.

Some shots of our efforts so far...

 Our dining room...

An actual plaster replica of my Peter pointer...totally freaked out the kids.

The easiest wreath ever. Take a king sized sheet (I borrowed one from last years Halloween party) and tear into long strips. Wrap pieces around a wreath form (Michael's is my go to place). Add a snappy bow (hellooooooo Michael's) and a cut out of a printed skull. I got this particular one from The Graphics Fairy clip art site then added my own embellishments and type. Hot glue all loose ends and Voila!
The whole project took about an hour (shopping excluded).

I may leave the crows up year round, perhaps jaunty them up for Christmas. I think they give off just the right amount of ominous...keep the hooligans and politicians away.

Only five more sleeps!
