Today, in preparation for our Halloween Party, we made some cute decorations. These handprint ghosts are the easiest and cutest things ever! & they probably only took about 10 minutes altogether. First, we used white paint to print Daniel's hands onto black paper. I didn't take any pictures because I was trying (in vain) to avoid getting paint on my chairs! But, you can imagine how it went down.
Then we left them to dry, Daniel kept running back over to check on them. He did some other Halloween-themed painting too (read: he used black and orange paper/paints. Festive!) while we waited. When they were dry I added eyes with a black pen, punched holes in the top and threaded them onto string. Easy peasy. I used a little cellotape on the back to stop them all falling into the middle, and blu-tack to stick them to the walls because I couldn't find my pins. Oh well. They look adorable, & I'll be keeping them, adding the date and using them every year!
Apologies for the poor lighting, I hate how difficult it is to take pictures in autumn/winter!
We hung spooky cobwebs & I've spent the evening making pretzel-pumpkins & biscuit dough. Tomorrow is for baking before our guests arrive!! Squee!
Lots of Love
