Halloween Fun

Last night Stephanie came over for a little Halloween crafty time. I had bought the Martha Stewart pumpkin glitter kit at Michael's a few weeks ago and was very excited to glitter some pumpkins. I knew Stephanie would be up for it too. We glittered 4 pumpkins. I sent one home with Stephanie and here's my three on display in my living room. Aren't they fun?

I'm thinking I'm going to need to glitter more things. I have lots of glitter left....wonder what else I can make sparkly shades of orange? I also had the stuff to make some fun Halloween cupcakes. I bought cute little Halloween paper liners and silly little decorating stuff. They turned out a bit silly, but fun and quite tasty!

Last week I was looking at this ridiculous black feather boa that Jessie tried to get me wear on my birthday and wondering what in the heck I should do with it, when I remembered the boa wreath I made for Christmas last year and knew a black one would be fun for Halloween. So I bought 2 more boas and found a wreath form at the dollar store and added some orange ribbon. I think it's the perfect Halloween wreath!

Here's a couple more Halloween decorations. This little ceramic pumpkin and witch set was made for me by a childhood babysitter and my mom passed it along to me last year to add to my Halloween collection.

Here's the fun little candle lantern I ordered at Stephanie's Partylite party. The spider web piece on the front is magnetic, so after Halloween I can change it to one with leaves for the fall and one with snowflakes for the winter. Pretty fun I think.
I was hoping to get some work done out in our courtyard this weekend, so that I can make it look all nice for trick or treaters....not sure it's going to happen though. It's a bit warm today and I don't really feel like digging out the garden, which has been over run with mint, or cleaning off patio furniture and such. I'm wanting a nice 70 degree day so I can work out there and enjoy myself!

So impressed Erin!! You don't even have a child to get you into the spirit ...

Love all of this happy fall goodness, but my favorite is the boa wreath. So easy and clever and chic!! And the glitter kit? Well I heard you managed to use a 40% coupon on that?!?! Is it true? All of our coupons exclude Martha's products (you know because she really needs to collect every cent to stay afloat ... HAHAHAHA). Either way, they are totally fuN!
