My little boy was super sick last week! Fever, hives, cough, congestion. So sad for the little man, and tough for a busy mama!

I wanted to get in to the Halloween spirit, and pull something fun and festive together for my big girl.

So, I needed to bust out some creative projects she could be a part of and get it done fast, that boy needed our love and attention. Here is what I came up with in a flash.

I pulled out a sheet of purple card stock, had Coco cut up 6 squares, slapped on some poster stickers we had on hand. We were out of P and K, so I rigged a letter B to make P, then cut up an H to make the K. SPOOKY – done. 5 minutes.


boo-2014-4I grabbed a piece of black card stock and an exacto knife and carved out BOO – 15 seconds flat! 2 decorations (positive and negative “boo”) done. Boom. Next.


boo-2014-9Bats. I had a few left over from last year, but, we made a few more. Black card stock, folded in 1/2 trace a bat like shape. Kid cut. Done. Bats all over the house. Fun.

boo-2014-1My son had made these hand prints at school last month. I was getting ready to hang this in the kids room – then realized, this image is kinda morbid in red. But GREAT as Halloween decor. Yea. Nail in wall. Done.



boo-2014-6These ghosts were the most fun for us to make! And so easy too. Take one tissue lay flat, tear 1 tissue in 1/2 crumple into a ball place in the middle of whole tissue, then tie it up. We drew some spooky faces and glued them on. We made 6, and tied them to our dining room lighting. 10 minutes.

Homemade Halloween happened in about 30 minutes! So fun! Next up, Pumpkins.

How do you get into the Halloween spirit? Do you decorate? Please share your tricks to making your home spooky and festive.
