Halloween!

I {love} this time of year! The air gets crisp, the leaves start to change. I want to make soup and apple pie!

I decided to decorate a little early for Halloween this year.

I bought this at the dollar store:

With a little Modge Podge and glitter, I turned it into this:

So fun! I did it w/ a black tombstone, too. I forgot to take the "before" picture, but here is the "after" pic:

The tombstones were only a dollar each, I already had the Modge Podge, and the glitter was about $3 at WalMart. What a fun and inexpensive way to give your Halloween decorations a little oomph!

Even though I wish I did, I didn't come up with this idea on my own. I got the idea HERE.

Not even October yet and look at you go!! I love that idea-I may have to try that. No short supply of glitter in my makeup box.
