Halloween Lanterns & Art

First off, thank you for all the lovely comments about the pillows from last week. Since then I’ve been a busy bee getting this house ready for our Halloween Party.

Halloween is vastly approaching, and I’m scrambling to get the house ready for the Holiday parties, I’ve been a little behind this year!

I made these cheap and easy Halloween lanterns to light up the entrance, but later decided they turned out cute enough to use inside. So I’m sure I’ll make more!


This tin-can lantern project is from Martha Stewart.

They were so fun and simple I used tin-cans from all my canned goods in the pantry! Just wash them and peel the labels off, fill with water and freeze.

Lay the frozen can on a bag of rice, then using a nail and hammer make faces or letters on the side.

Aren’t these little guys cute? I definitely plan to make more and line my walkway with them, they are especially spook-tacular at night when the candle is flickering.

Now did you see that dictionary art hung on my wall? I found free clipart online and printed Halloween inspired pictures onto the dictionary pages.

I bought the frames from the thrift store for a buck, then painted them white!

Alright, I need to get back to cleaning house and decorating! Enjoy your week.
