I can't tell you how much I love Halloween and decorating at this time of year. None of my decorations match, mind you. I have this kooky mix of spooky decorations and cutesy stuff. So I just put up everything and laugh at the interesting combinations. This year I took some stuff down to Tyler's work. I have been wanting to make my spider hatchlings since I saw them on FamilyFun last year. It was quite a messy project, but I think it turned out quite nicely (well, creepy is probably a better word). I bought the spiders online and they came in a huge pack of 144 (I looked around at stores but they only have the ring spiders). I have to admit that my arachnophobia did not help in assembling this project. June was playing with the spiders all afternoon and that was okay until she threw a whole bunch down the stairs. Seeing all those spiders cascading down at me did nothing for my fear. And later when Ivory found a basket and dumped out about a hundred of these spiders on the floor, I was seriously grossed out (Ewww!).
Anyway, here is the final result.
Then since I already had the webs and spiders out, I thought I could do a little decorating at home.
My favorite is the first presidency in cobwebs.
I love Halloween and all the fun ideas. You need to go check out littleantdesigns. It has a ton of great Halloween and party ideas. Plus, she is doing a giveaway right now where you could win one of these scary portraits. I think I need one. It would fit well with my spooky collection--I really have too much cutesy right now. Happy Haunting all you guys.
