A VIEW TO HALLOWEEN



Well, Halloween is almost here.....one good thing.....IT'S COOLER!!!!! I never SWEATED so much in my entire life as I did this summer!  But do I weigh any less? NO! Oh well..... it has been so hot, I couldn't get back in the groove here.....even garage sales were less interesting to me.....but I finely finished the next old green window.....
I thought I would put a Halloween spin on it.....I had left over scrap book paper and down loaded some pics from Magic Moonlight Free Images  and off of the internet....

The window frame alone is scary enough.....

Stuck a little moss here and there....and I used 3M adhesive spray to attach the pictures and moss to the glass....

This stuff works great.....









These are some scary little girls........






Now all I have to do is find a place to hang it......and some little orange lites!

What a great window! Super job.

You did drastic in change in that window. I do believe it will be very appropriate for the spooks.

Hi,

I love your window. It is so cool how you decorated it. The lights will look awesome! Maybe some faux cobwebs on there too, and a few spiders here and there. Great job!!

Great window! Very spooky and very creative! I love it!!!

Elizabeth Ann said...

This is so cute! Thank you for sharing.

I agree the two little girls are scary but funny. That seems to be the case with a lot of the antique pictures. I use a copy of an antique picture of one of my relatives as my price tag for my booth and in my blog header . I think she is a riot but Mr.EA and MB thinks she is scary looking.

You know I think I have window the garage.....

your window looks fantastic! so clever!

Bella said...

I saw this when you posted it, and don't think I had a chance to leave you a comment about how utterly fantastic I think it is. Not to scary, and not to cheesy. Really cute, and I love the vintage feel of it. Gosh, I would soooo love it if you could muster up the strength to add just one more PARTY to your already huge list. I am hosting a new party, and would really love to have you, and try to keep me in mind, as it starts every Tuesday. I appreciate all the support, and look forward to seeing more of your projects. Thanks Bella :)
