I’ve got another quick project for you! Somehow I’m always rushing at the last minute, I work will under pressure I guess (it’s not like I didn’t know October was coming!). I’ve had this idea in my head for months, I actually bought the vase back in early September!
I’ve got another creepy Halloween project, depending on your particular definition of spooky it may be more or less creepy than the Bleeding Blossoms I shared last year. It’s a great last minute thing if you’re in a crunch. My local Dollar Tree has these snakes all year round too, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding them in the regular toy aisle (most of the Halloween stuff in my area is gone).
All you need is a bottle of wine (wine optional if it’s just for decoration) and a dollar store plastic snake (make sure it curls into a circle). If you’re wondering it’s really weird buying a bottle of wine when you’re 8 months pregnant. I felt like I had to sneak AND explain to the the guy behind the counter that I wasn’t actually going to drink it, just take pictures of it! He looked at my like I was crazy, but it’s all in a days work for a blogger I guess.
We did it again! This year I convinced my husband that we should get new clothesline (we had a serious mouse problem in our garage last year and the old stuff was pretty nasty). We picked up two lengths of 100 ft cotton clothes line (~$4 each) and got to work. One piece was cut up and used to make the vertical lines and the other one was kept whole and used to make the horizontal parts.
Today I’ve got a project that fits on the cute side of Halloween and as a special bonus: No Spiders! I bought a bunch of these tall birdhouses 2 summers ago from Michael’s for less than a quarter a piece. I decided on a trio because it’s easier to decorate with three of something and because it worked out with mixing up the colors, I’ll cover that later.
