Inspired by my awesome cousin Debbie, I embarked on the Halloween season in a crafty state of mind. Ethan's popsicle stick pumpkin. He was given a lot of supervision and guidance.
Gabriel's popsicle stick pumpkin. He was left to his own devices with a pile of popsicle sticks and glue.
Ethan's decorated paper mache skull. It really turned out quite nice.
(Gabriel painted a wooden bat - but Duncan promptly ate one wing and half the body.)
Ethan's paper pumpkin.
Gabriel's paper pumpkin. Normally his handwriting is quite legible. I don't know what happened here.
Ethan's hand bat. Again, lots of guidance and supervision.
Gabriel's hand bat. Once again, I tossed him the scissors and glue and wished him luck. I guess it pays to be the baby sometimes.
Once again, finding inspiration from the craftiness of others, I made this Halloween wreath from the directions by Suburban Matron. Something about mine looks really .... homemade. I can't quite put my finger on it.
This is the skull I decorated. Since I was in the feather dept of Michael's anyway, I loaded up. And you know what? Sometimes, things look better in our heads then in person - this was one of those times.
The boys also made Halloween bats and owls out of those little puff ball thingys with googly eyes and everything. Heavy sigh... Duncan got a hold of those too.
