Fall is usually the time of year when I dust off the glue gun and get crafty. The season sort of cries out for crafting. Well, this year, I ignored the siren song. I've made absolutely nothing and I'm ok with it.
Ever since having Harper, our house has felt a lot smaller (and I know that's a common feeling). Out of necessity, and out of a desire to purge clutter as blocks and books moved in, I've pared down my decor. There's just not room and all of it is a baby magnet. So I kept it simple for fall. I already have a lot of decorations and making more just doesn't make sense right now. Luckily, I'm in the midst of planning a friend's baby shower, so my few drops of creative juice left are being funneled in that direction.
Nonetheless, I wanted to resurrrect a project from the archives and share it again. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
This skull print is one of my favorite Halloween projects to date. I thought it turned out pretty good, and it was one of those right-from-my-brain on the fly sort of projects. Funny thing is, Tony is totally creeped out by it and won't let me put it up. Oh well, I don't really decorate for Halloween anyway. So, it will live on here, in blogworld, even if it doesn't see the light of day in the real world.
I printed an anatomical skull print from the Google onto newsprint. I glued it to some orange paper. To rough it up, I spraypainted some black through a piece of burlap. Done-zo.
I still love these pumpkins I made a few years back.
Basic cheapo foam pumpkins painted with metallic craft paint and doused in glitter. Boom.
This is about all I have going on this year. Womp.
Oh well. There's always Christmas (ps - I'm already stressing about a tree - we can't not get one! but our child is a destructive force that I am not prepared to deal with....) Maybe a tabletop one? Grrrr babyproofing!
