Skulls on a Red Tree
So as much as I love Halloween and everything it stands for, I don't like to spend a lot of money. Why??? Because if you buy something expensive and showey for your house then everyone else has the exact same thing. (Besides that, I'd rather loose all my spendin' money in a slot machine...yeah I know, gambling is pointless...but get over it) Also, living in a small town, everyone tends to shop at the same stupid store and decorate with the same stupid stuff.
I prefer to put on my creative witchy hat and make things that are one of a kind.
For example, this year I have created a skull tree! I got these most awesome skulls at the local dollar store (8 for $1.00) and drilled holes in their little tiny heads. I ran with my love of beading and beaded some of their eyes for a glowey creepy feel. Then I popped the little buggers over the pre-strung lights on this awesome red X-mas tree I got at a yard sale last some ($.50).
Now throw some ribbon on and WAA-LAA!!! Instant original spook!
