DSC03399DSC03395These are two tried and true Halloween projects.  While neither is exactly a novel idea, they are both simple and inexpensive. 

First, I took advantage of a half off sale on Halloween decor and purchased two faux pumpkins.  I used a foam paint brush to cover each pumpkin in craft glue that I diluted with a little water and then doused them in fine green and orange glitter.  Since the pumpkins are not specifically for Halloween, I plan to continue to decorate with them throughout the end of November.

Second, I used scraps of muslin to cover lollipops for trick-or-treaters.  I used some string to secure the fabric and a black marker to draw ghostly faces.  Now it is time to hand out candy and enjoy the parade of costumes at our front door.

Happy Halloween!
