Something Creepy This Way Comes
Sometimes when a craft works out really well, you just gotta do it again and again. In fact, I think I’m going to make this a tradition for us.
It’s just fun and CHEAP! All you need are some cardboard boxes (which I have plenty thanks to a super fun backyard Angry Birds game—hope you didn’t want that guitar box back Carrien), paint, maybe a box-cutter and some box-cutting skillz.
Cut them out, paint them, let them dry and you are set for Halloween.
Put them in your window and let the creepiness take over.
This one really gets me. I keep thinking it’s a real cat out of the corner of my eye. That’s Bug’s handiwork. I guess she knows how to draw cats pretty well.
The cool thing is: as it gets darker and darker they just get cooler and cooler.
And creepier and creepier…wooooooOOOOOOoooooooooh……
Those look sooooo cool in the window. If only I didn’t live in the country…where no one sees my window.
We still have those cardboard cut-outs you did two years ago! I need to put them up in our windows!
Once again I love this craft. Silhouettes are wonderful! I do puppet shows with them sometimes! Shame I only have one front window onto the street. I have steps from the road which you need to come down to access my apartment.. this year as well as my pumpkin I think I will try your silhouette idea and maybe some cobwebs and spiders. Heh heh
I really like the cat face just peaking over the windowcill. And Bug’s of course. She sure can draw a great cat.
Me too! The neighbor girl, who we call Boo, did that. She’s quite the artist as well. :)
My mom used to do something similar with construction paper. We’d cut out cats, witches, bats, etc. in black; moons and jack-o-lanterns in orange and tape them to the windows. Fun!
wow it looks like you guys are having fun down there i wish i were down there with you. the only thing we have in our windows are stickers and white pumpkins
