My brain usually skips right over Hallowe'en and jumps to Christmas. But now that my oldest son is starting to recognize different holidays, I thought I should at least attempt to decorate. A little.
So off to the dollar store I went, and picked up some black and white ghost garland. For a week or so, it was draped around the edge of our kitchen ceiling. But as time wore on, I hated it. Time for plan B, a ghostly wreath.
This was the world's easiest wreath. I took a length of foam plumbing insulation and duct taped it into a circle. Then I used straight pins to attach one end of the garland to the foam, and then wrapped and wrapped. Another pin, a ribbon to hang it, and done. I also purchased a large, glow-in-the-dark plastic spider to mount inside the wreath once it's on the front door, but that won't be for a couple more days.
I also purchased some wooden letters to make BOO blocks, but we'll see if that happens this year. If so, great, and if not, at least there's the wreath.
