Hello October. Where did September go? My goodness the time is moving so fast and I can’t keep up. Things I failed to mention over the past 4 weeks. Everyday Originals turned 1! At the end of August was the first anniversary of the site. I’m hoping this means motivating me to keep finding new projects and posting them on a timely basis (er, I’m super guilty of posting things weeks later!) and I hope you’re still motivated to be creative and keep doing your own projects…. and sharing them here! My better half had a birthday, my grandmother, Mimi had a birthday … 81!, my brother-in-law, aunt, a few friends, they all turned a year older! And lastly one friend had a baby boy. So congratulation, happy birthday, happy anniversary, etc. etc! Now that we’re all caught up on September let’s move onto H-A-double L-O-W-double E-N.
I’m slowly getting my Halloween decor together and this is the first thing I made. Using one of the bajillion vintage doilies I have I made this incredibly inexpensive and easy spider’s web window hanging. I purchased a wooden quilting circle for $1.49 at the craft store. Painted it black, let it dry, placed the doily in it and tied a string to it. You could use ribbon or anything you have to hang it, I just happened to have some string that matched well.
I added a few fake spiders who kept falling off the doily. The spiders I bought were a squishy material so I just pinned them onto the doily. The plastic spiders would probably hang on much better.
Not bad for an easy, inexpensive, spooooooky decoration. Okay so maybe not that spooky but it’s really cute! Do you have any good Halloween decorations up your sleeve this year? Do share!
