More Halloween Decorating!

I thought I would Halloweenerize my black and white picture wall for the big day!

All I did was purchase different sized googly eyes and mini glue dots and went to town adding eyeballs to my pictures. I wasn't' sure about adding them to my mom's photos but I'm glad I did. I wonder what she's thinking as she looks down from above? I"d like to think they are all chuckling upstairs!

I then went to the wonderful Graphics Fairy site and found some vintage skeletons and bats and printed them off and added them to frames. Of course my daughter insisted they all get their own googly eyes so I let her do that!

In the first picture you might notice a collage of baby pics. I thought it would be cute to add eyes to the cute naked baby. Boy was I wrong about that one! Claire took one look at that and she freaked. I couldn't get that dam picture down fast enough for her. I was really surprised she got so upset. I then added that creepy guy at the top instead. It works! Don't tell Claire but I think I like him more. His eyes light up! Hell, who would have thought my pink haired, usually sporting two crooked pony tails and mismatched clothes would be so sensitive!

Throw in a black feather wreath and a glitter skull (eyes of course) and Voila!

And there you have an easy and quick fix to add Halloween to your family photos!

Thanks for stopping by our little blog. I found the cow painting on Etsy after looking for a year for the perfect one. It is by an artist named Roz Art, and she has a nice selection of oils and prints. Mine is one of her originals.
