Every year , at my house, my family and I like to look for new ways to decorate for the fall or Halloween using everyday, household objects and or a way to recycle. Not only is this a fun way to involve each family member, but it is less costly and on the "green" side. So above is a Black Widow like spider we made a few years ago from black plastic bags and fall leaves...as you can see we have a plethora of leaves in our yard that we didn't rake. We used old wire to help create the legs so they would bend and sit on the tree.
Last year, at our new house, I used milk jugs to create family friendly ghosts. Didn't cost me a thing. Just used a sharpie marker to make the faces and I cut the milk jugs with a utility knife. I used tea candles I already had to light them up. My 4 and 2 year old sons just loved the friendly ghosts.
|My favorite is this turkey picture made with the loving hands of my two boys. I used it as a decoration on my refrigerator.|
I have made leave print place mats, pressed leaves between sheets of wax paper, and put pears in water in a vase. Just to name a few. :)
I am hoping to be inspired by others blogs today as I am linking up with the SITS girls @ http://www.thesitsgirls.com/community/challenges/back-to-blogging-day-4/
