I felt like our mantel needed a little something extra this year. Now that The Redhead is doing better with his Fall Anxiety, we can put up a few more decorations! But no creepy ones! And only two weeks before or later.
I'll take it.
Anyway, a friend of mine has a paper crafting room that is like Disneyland for papercrafters. She has all the toys! So rather than cut out all these letters by hand for the idea I came up with, I asked her to help me with her fancy gizmos.
I just wanted a couple lines from 'This is Halloween' (Nightmare Before Christmas). I was looking for a phrase that could be divided in two (because VISUALLY I knew what I wanted!) and probably picked the wrong one, but that's okay! I love how it looks.
It goes well with our little Nightmare figures on the mantel (but no Oogie-Boogie, he was banished).
I love paper decorations. And sometimes they last. I've had these little dudes hanging up in the kitchen for... I don't know how many years but they've lasted well!
Have a great Halloween! The Girl went to school as Totoro and I will try and get photos of the boys tomorrow - I LOVE their (surprisingly easy) costumes this year! Weirdly The Redhead hasn't had a chance to dress up yet! What are your kids dressing up as?
