I just completed my first Halloween project for my 31 day Fall inspiration challenge. I bought the letters a while ago and couldn't decide what to do. I was going to paint them and put them on a wood sign but I had an idea and thought why not, lets give it a try.
I went to Micheals and found some little beads on the clearance rack. They were $1.97. Then I picked up some eye hooks for .99 and the three letters were about 1.20 a piece. I picked up some paint today at HL and painted them up. Then I connected them all together and I just love it!
Please ignore my spotty brown bananas in the background. They will become banana bread tomorrow. I'm not sure if this will be it's permanent home but for now I will leave it. What's good is I can change out the little gems in between the letters if I wanted to.
I've got a some other projects under way for my next couple of posts. A monogramed Halloween wreath and an old lantern I found at the Goodwill that is going to be painted black and decorated up in a spooky way.
But before I get too immersed in my fall projects I have to get my yard ready. I had to say so long to the geraniums in the front yard. They gave it their last burst of color and within a couple of days were done.
We found him shaking and scared in the back yard. A baby opossum that was no bigger than the length of my hand. My son's girlfriend and I wrapped him up and took him in to the nature center where they said he would stay in an incubator. They told us they have a bunch of little guys just like him so he would have little friends. They said he probably fell off of the mothers back when she came in to the neighbors yard to eat. I was almost tempted to keep him but when we did an internet search it said that raising a baby opossum can be difficult and when I searched further the grown up Opossums are not very cute.
For day eight of my Fall Inspiration challenge I will be making the above mentioned banana bread or banana muffins and was thinking of throwing in some mashed pumpkin to bring in the fall flavors. Day nine I will be travelling into Chicago to drop off some things to my daughter so my fall inspiration post will be some fall pictures from the city.
