However, many of our Halloween decorations seem to have been lost- which I imagine happened when we moved back in January. But of course I did not notice until now. So off to the dollar store we went. We picked up some spider webs and plastic crows. Walter really wanted to hang some plastic skeletons too. So we ended up buying four plastic skeletons. All the excitement of the day must have taken its toll on the little guy (he is still four...) because by the time we got home with our "loot" he hung one skeleton and declared the house sufficiently decorated.
Slightly annoyed by his willingness to waste I was determined to make use of our decorations. So That Guy went outside and strung the webs, positioned the crows and hung one skeleton on the front porch. But how many plastic skeletons does one house really need? Especially one house that is also a home daycare - in other words I am totally open to the whimsy of the holiday but I am not looking to frighten small children.
So I decided to make a wreath for our front door out of the remaining two skeletons. Since they were $2 each this project came to a cost of $4.

Next, with my trusty hot glue gun I glued all the bits together.
Then I hung it on our door!
