F&B helped me make a few simple Halloween decorations the other day. I forget where I saw these originally but I had to have a set of my very own.
Just two simple little ghosts ...
Two mini canvases, black & white paint, a brush and two kiddos willing to help. Craft supplies were from the Dollar Tree--two canvases for $1, paints for $1 a container, big bag of brushes for $1. I actually had all the supplies at home, so in theory, it was a free craft. ;o)
I painted the canvases the night before so they would dry. We painted palms, but I actually placed their hands on the canvas to get the right centering. Remove the hands and a ghost remains!
A bit of black paint for the face and a white name, and my custom artwork is ready to display.
Thinking back, this would be such an awesome idea to do each year and hang together, but of course, F&B are 8 and 5 now, so I'm missing a few years worth.
