One more post today…I LOVE fall and I also love Halloween!!! I started putting up decorations today.
A couple years back I saw an idea on Pinterest and decided to try it myself, only better! Duh! I am fairly good at free handed stuff, provided I have the time and my kiddos only bump me a little while I work. Lol. Yeah right:)
All I used was black poster board (foam board would be sturdier, but hard to cut detail), scissors, an exacta-knife, pencil, and tape. After measuring my windows and cutting the poster board to size, I hand drew my designs. Next I cut them out and taped things together I needed as I went. The end product is a little bit of an eye sore from the inside of the house, but it would look a little better if I used something other than the silver duct tape I had on hand lol. Besides, you put the white blinds down behind it so you can see it better from the outside anyways…
But the outside looks AWESOME!!
The hand on the monster in the window right next to the front door is actually my sons window I traced when he was about 10 months old.
It’s pretty time consuming, but turned out great! If I were to make some for someone else, prices would really depend on the elaboration and size of the windows. I would say anywhere from $15 (like the one next to my front door) and up. The one in my front window (with the four monsters) would be about $50.
TIP: having white blind behind the posters and a lamp on in the room close to the window makes the monsters visible during the day and really pop at night even more than just having the lights on in the house.
We can’t wait for Halloween in our house!!!
