Tadpole Tuesday: Teri’s Halloween Trees

Remember these ghosts that we made with the kids?

October 2009 105

They are hanging outside our house with some decoupage Halloween ornaments on our Halloween Trees (aka dead sticks we “planted” in the ground).

We made these as a family and they were fun and not too difficult. To find out how to make them, visit Blue Cricket Designs.

We also coated them with glow in the dark Mod Podge and sprayed them with polyurethane. Then we tied monofilament to the loops to hang them. Voile!

There is one there from each of us….perfect in their imperfection (I’ll let you guess who’s is whose).

This is about the extent of our outside decor, except for my favorite jack-o-lantern riding a spider which was pictured here.

That looks like loads of fun! I can't wait until my boys are old enough to do holiday crafts with me.

To answer your question about auctions, check out Enter your zip code and you can see auctions that are upcoming in your area. It can be intimidating the first time you go, but just let them know it's your first itme, ask questions and make sure you understand the terms and payment methods accepted. At the auction I attend, when you win something it's dropped right in your lap, so come prepared!
