...this October came around and I found myself in our first home with a big ol' oak tree in the front yard and I couldn't even wait to get started. I used a couple of wood posts from the hardware store, some plastic bags stuffed with paper and some random round tablecloths I had lying around (I know, I know, everyone always claims they have useful/vintage/fabulous stuff "lying around" and you're like, "how the heck do they have that?" but I really DID have 5 big ol' white round tablecloths hangin' around. promise.). All of the pictures I saw of ghost rings online had faces and heads, but I liked mine plain and simple. Not to mention, if I didn't paint faces then I wouldn't have to worry about the placement when I re-use the stuff next year. Anyway, I just adore how it turned out. yay! yay! for a fabulous BIG $5 Halloween decoration! Definitely $5 well spent in my book :)
Isn't is fabulously festive? *happy sigh*
Since I was taking pictures in front of my house, I figured I'd throw a full-shot in there since most of y'all haven't seen it yet :)
Home Sweet Home
(please excuse the random pile of ghost-making supplies on the driveway and the red car that Spence is working on for a friend)
While Spencer and I were busy making our dancing ghosts, Ezra was busy making his very own vampire. How cute is that? It doesn't exactly match the decor, but it's getting left up anyway, 'cause I'm that kind of mom (you know, the kind who doesn't care enough to care ;).
Handyman Ezra and his Masterpiece
Oh, and since we're showing house pictures, here's a couple from last week's tree-chopping. These pictures don't even do it justice. It was a big ol' full-grown tree, I promise!

What, you don't have random low-riding neighbor boys hanging around your house? poor you.
ps-are y'all doing anything fun and festive this Halloween season? I'd love to hear :)
