Crafts are fun. and I'm just a tad bit addicted this season. I think it's because these ones are so darn cheap and easy. Not to mention fall is my favorite time of the year!!
Here is my "ghost family", courtesy of Brighton :) I love how they turned out and they look so festive on our table! Definitely an eye-catcher.
The tutorial is here.
I call these "raggedy broomsticks" and I sort of just made them with stuff I had lying around. Then I put them on the door to keep out the devil! ha ha.
Everyone keeps asking me, "What is Talmage going to be for Halloween?" I conjured up all kinds of cute ideas before realizing that 1)there is no ward Halloween party and 2)we won't be going trick-or-treating since he is so young. So really I would waste time and money for no reason. This is my compromise.
Jonathan made it all. He carved the pumpkin and crocheted this little hat for him. I loved the fact that I didn't have to do a thing but take cute pictures :) You may not be able to tell, but he *really* hated being in that pumpkin. We had to act like crazy monkeys to keep him the least bit content.
That lasted for a little while, then he lost it.
Overall it was a wonderful memory and years from now when he has a bride I can show these to her and say, "See how cute he is?!?!"
