Halloween Decor

Would you like to take a tour of my Halloween Decorations? You know, since you have nothing else going on right now. Yes? OK. I promise it will be fast.
This is the wreath a made a few days ago.

I wasn't planning on making a Halloween wreath, but I saw this cute little broom in the dollar section at Target and decided I could throw together something fast and cheap.

And cheap and fast it was. All I did was take apart an existing wreath that was long over due to be tossed out.

Spray paint it black, wrap spider web stuff around it, hot glue on the broom and a few spiders and then hang it with some cute ribbon. I didn't add up the cost, but I'm sure it was less than $10.
OK, back to the tour. Well, that's the end of it actually, thanks for stopping by!
I know. I'm like the Halloween Grinch this year. I have a tub of decorations (mostly cheap stuff from the dollar store) but I just didn't have it in me to drag it out, and the kids never asked so I just let it go. I even store bought all of their costumes!
Instead of feeling bad about it though, I like to pretend that I'm just gearing myself up to be super fun crafty baking mom at Christmas time!

You shouldn't feel bad at all. Honestly, I feel like us moms get ourselves so bent out of shape by trying to live up to really high expectations that WE set for ourselves. There is nothing wrong with store bought costumes. I have learned that it is much more cost effective than sewing one entirely from scratch. Now, if you were goin to go as something that could be thrown together from household items, it might be cheaper, but the zipper, thread, and fabric, not to mention the TIME it costs to make a costume are much greater than the $15-$20 you will spend on a store bought one.
