This picture startled me with its beauty when I took it several years ago. (No, don't steal it.) The funky candlestick was $1 at yard sale. The candles were in a $1 box that said "dripless candles." Ummm, don't think so. At least they dripped spectacularly!
Front yard graveyard two years ago. I made the tombstones with sheets of cast off foam that came from appliances. The paint was a $3/gal mis-tint at Lowe's. A painted brick sits behind and two in front for stability. A tea light in front of each tombstone adds an eerie aspect.
My Halloween candy for the kids is always free, bought at Office Max with my MaxPerks points earned from recycling ink cartridges. This year, I did not buy candy, so that opportunity to spend $40 is still in place at OM.
Since it is going to rain, I won't be out tonight. Since I am still running a fever, I will not decorate with the graveyard. I'm hiding from Trick or Treaters and staying off the streets so I don't hit a kid.
What are you doing for Halloween? What is your costume? Parties? Hiding?
