Crafty Boos

Digg!
Well, now that we are into the month of October, it is that time of year when we break out the pumpkins and fun decorations to get ready for Halloween. I wanted to share these two projects with you that I received in an email from Better Homes & Gardens.

I am really drawn to fall/Halloween decorations that have a classic look to them. So, when I saw the email that had this project it really caught my eye. I thought the white boards and pumpkins were really striking.

You don't actually have to paint your steps, you use pieces of wood you can put in front of your steps.

If you don't feel like painting the letters, I have seen that Michael's sells some big letter kids in Martha Stewart's Halloween line. So that may be something to check out. Here is a link to the instructions on how to put this project together. http://www.bhg.com/holidays/halloween/outdoor-decorations/halloween-outdoor-makeover/?sssdmh=dm17.339579&page=19&esrc=nwcu15_09a&email=197605287


Here is the second project that I loved. This is a great way to "go green" for recycling your tin cans from around the house. These little luminary cans are just adorable and something that you could do as a Saturday project with older children.

How cute would these look lining your walk way for Trick or Treaters on Halloween? I like the idea that you can do different designs.

Here is a link to the directions for doing this project. http://www.bhg.com/holidays/halloween/outdoor-decorations/tin-can-luminarias/?sssdmh=dm17.339579&esrc=nwcu15_09&email=197605287

If you decide to do either of these projects, I'd love to hear back from you. Or, if you are doing something else creative to decorate for fall and Halloween, please let me know. I'd love to share them on my blog.

Happy Thursday everyone!
