Who's ready for Halloween?

Biggs has a love for halloween like no other, he talks about it all year and his favorite movie is "Nightmare before Christmas". Anything spooky he's for it!  So when we went to the craft store yesterday and he saw all the halloween stuff he couldn't help but pick some stuff out. He grabbed some spooky cookie cutters which is perfect for a craft I've been wanting to try. Today we made some spooky sun catchers/decorations. I found some pony beads at the dollar store a few weeks ago and have been holding on to them just for this craft. We are super excited how they turned out!

So pick a shape and throw in some beads! Stick it in the oven at 400 for 15-20 mins. Wait about five minutes and pop them out of the cookie cutters. It's that easy unless.....
you get all crazy like I did with the pumpkin it took a while and some patience.

There you have it! Some really cute decorations, we taped these to the window but if you have a drill/dremel you can put holes in and tie together to make a hanging sun catcher, you can glue magnets on, make necklaces, glue to a wreath etc etc... possibilities are endless!

Rich was making fun of us because we are making halloween stuff in August but get used to it cause it's our favorite time of year and I anticipate a lot more in the following weeks/months! Enjoy.

*Just a warning: this is melting plastic so it doesn't smell that great and isn't good to breathe in, however it doesn't last long and as long as you are in a well ventilated area it shouldn't be a problem. If you are still concerned then use a toaster oven outside. Also if you didn't notice from the pictures I covered the cookie sheet with foil and I didn't use the "cutter" side of the cookie cutters, just in case it left any residue I can still use my cookie cutters for food. Thanks.
