My husband used to work long hours during harvest. I started getting projects to do after the kids were in bed to work on until he got home. This is one of those projects. I love her!
This is our hod podge village.
One Family Home Evening every October we made a Halloween Decoration. This village is proof of all those projects. It is so fun to look at them as I pull them out. Each year things were painted or made and matched that year's trends or thoughts of the children. A good example is one of the ghosts has a ninja turtle mask on.
Close up of the spiders...our grandson is going to love these lights - he loves spiders.
Looking from the living room into the entry area. Front door is to your right
These are made using latex gloves, a candy at the end of the fingernails and stuffed with popcorn. Add a ribbon and your done!
I had a bunch of "decoration crumbs" and didn't know what to do with them. So I found an old wreath and started gluing things everywhere...kind of an "Eye Spy" wreath. Some of the things are things that our children made when they are young. I have a few more spots to fill in so it will be a "work in progress" wreath.
This is Brumhilda. My friend Lorraine and I made witches together about 20 years ago. She holds the candy for our trick or treaters.
Witch on entry room table. She is stirring a pot with eyeballs in it.
Frankie! I love pulling him out of the box every year. I made him when we lived in Utah and he has made through all our subsequent moves. WOO HOO Frankie!
Pumpkin Shelf. Filled with all the pumpkin and ghost wood projects we have done over the years.
Cats in the window. These were made also at Family Home Evening when the kids were little. A mom and dad cat and 5 kittens. The kids each painted their own kittens. I know I am a hopeless romantic!
Spidey! We made him out of some black garbage bags. His legs have gotten shorter over the years. It wouldn't be Halloween without him in the corner!
My stack tray centerpiece! I love it. I gathered the plates at garage sales and used leftover Halloween and Fall stuff to decorate it with. Then I added some jewelry and half marbles to fill in blank spots and here it is!
