Project Steps

Oh, how I just love this time of year! Especially, when autumn leaves wrestle to the ground and make way for the greatest sound, as kids trudge through yards full of them on their way to school and back again. Upon hearing the return of our neighborhood niblets, I knew it was time to start decorating. And, I wanted to make something extra fun for them to enjoy all month long: A two-monster mash to don our front Dutch door with a mirrored mouth for Trick-or-Treaters to see their costumes in action!

But, what could I create for under $10?

Yep. This was my challenge this year: to decorate on a dime.

Well, times a hundred, that is! 

The key to saving money is to be resourceful and creative, so I took inventory of the things I had around the house (paper bags, paper plates, glue, scissors, painters tape, sparkle paper from a previous craft project, and my handy HomeRight Super Finish Max paint sprayer.

I then wrote down a short list of items I'd need: mirror paper, more sparkle paper, and Velcro Brand Hangables. In no time at all, I had my supplies bought and collected, my monster designs drawn, and my two dogs, Krinkles and Bear-Bear, ready to join me in some fun Halloween crafting.


Whoooooooooooooo else wants to join, me? Hmm?
