I’m so into halloween decorating right now. Since Ella will be here in 11 days, I’m doing it all early. My son had a fever Saturday night and I was up at 4 o’clock in the morning giving him medicine and couldn’t sleep afterwards. So, I laid in bed and thought up this idea.

100_3854I had leftover Target scrapbook paper from my BOO banner and bottle caps galore. So I painted them black and cut circles of paper to fit inside the bottle caps. 100_3827

I used puff paint and wrote out SPOOKY on the circles.


I just used white glue and glued letter into the bottle caps.

I found this piece of wood in the backyard. So I hot glued each letter to it and used a piece of scrap ribbon to hang it with. I really had to work with the ribbon to bake it hang right.


I ended up adding a strip of magnet behind the word SPOOKY and at the top where the bow is. So I could hang it where ever I want.


The pictures are horrible, but the sign is cute.

And one more halloween decoration I made today. I’m really loving it… Sifted through my piles of sheet music to find something fitting.


I’m going to be linking up to Kimba's blog party for DIY Tuesday!
