13 Days of Halloween: Day 13

Happy Halloween!!!


My oldest daughter wanted to be a spider for Halloween.  So I made her some legs out of pipe insulation and I used zip ties to make the "joints".  Then I took some googly eyes and glued them to a head band.  


And since shared my crown creation with you, I thought I'd show you my entire finished costume.


And last, because she's just too darn cute, my youngest, a dragon.

13 Days of Halloween: Day 12


We made 1/2 a man!  An old pair of the husband's pants, stuffed with plastic bags.  The top is spray foam, painted and covered in fake blood.  Unfortunately this is the only picture I have right now.  I just finished him but it is COLD and dark outside.  I will re-position him tomorrow and try to get better pictures to share with you.

13 Days of Halloween: Day 11



Not certain what you'd call this, but it was very simple to make and I like it.

I used a candle holder from the Dollar Tree...


As well as a skull, also from the Dollar Tree.


And I have a few of these small fancy hats that my mother-in-law gifted me a while back that I thought would look really cute.




13 Days of Halloween: Day 10...one day late...

I am so sorry for not posting yesterday.  The day just got away from me.  So I will be making two posts today to make up for it.


We had guts for dessert today!

We made some cinnamon rolls with a twist.  I simply added some red food coloring to the rolls before putting them in the oven and then also mixed the red food coloring with the icing.  I think they came out great!

13 Days of Halloween: Day 8

Face Paint

My husband and I had planned on going to a Halloween party this evening and our costumes were going to be my creation for the day but both of us ended up feeling sick and staying home.  So there was no crafting for me today.  However, I did pick up some face paint for the girls a while back and decided to let them get creative with that and I am sharing their craftiness with you instead.

The girls with all the carved pumpkins...except mine.  You may be wondering where my pumpkin is...well...







Mommy wasn't feeling all that crafty.  Yay for pushpin faces.
