Random Crafts in our house

Last year I did a Halloween craft that I thought was amazing. Yikes! Well I have learned a few things through the year and it really wasn't that great. So I pulled it out of the box and try a few things that I learned through the year.

This was the last year version. I just painted it gray and added black and a few streaks of white to make it look "scary." It wasn't that great and I wanted something fun.

This year I wanted something new and I got it! I took the letters and left them the same color and added some nice Halloween touches. I think it looks TEN times better and I love them a lot more.

The total cost of the craft runs about 10 bucks. The letters are about 3 dollars a piece and the paper ran SUPER cheap during hobby lobby's 50 percent off sale. I had the mod podge at home. I did buy. some Krylon gloss for another project so I had that as well. I like the look of that over the top instead of mod podge. But the end result was way better than last year.

I enjoy reading your blog! I sometimes pop over after reading my daughter Tiffany's blog. You are such a good mother! It's impressive at how good you are at just going with the flow. Your son is a little miracle, you are so blessed.....and he is so lucky to have you for his mommy!!
