Like I mentioned in this post, I had some left over chalkboard paint from when I did Penelope’s playroom makeover. And now I wander around my house, mentally referring to my chalkboard pin board on Pinterest, trying to find things I can paint with chalkboard paint.
One Fall, several years ago, I thought it would be a great idea to buy 5 million clay pots and put mums inside and line them up and down my front steps. It was beautiful, but not very practical. Ever since, I have had mountains of these clay pots in my garage, just waiting for the perfect DIY to come along.
I had been meaning to rearrange and re pot some of my orchids and replenishe their soil with some orchid fertilizer. I slapped some chalk board paint on the pots first before I replanted. I painted two coats.
Then I wrote Boo in white chalk. I love how it came out! So stinking cute and best of all, EASY.
I have seen all kinds of footprint artwork on Pinterest, but I haven’t seen this till my friend did it. She made hers out of felt and put it on a felt, trick or trick bag she made for her daughter. I was going to do this painted version, but my other friend beat me to it. She watched Penelope for me the other day and they did this craft together.
I think this would look super cute in a black frame with a white background. It would be cute to do this every year and make it a tradition.
And lastly, another super easy, toddler craft that doubles as a Fall decoration. Again, this is not my idea but one of my friends. Penelope had so much fun doing this, she says Paint Pumpkin!, several times a day. It is just plain old acrylic paint and let your little one go to town.
Oh and P.S. remember this post with my Candy Corn pins? Yeah, well, I was right, I ended up eating the entire glass jar of candy corns. I actually pulled it off the counter and sat down with the damn thing on my lap and watched a movie. No more decorating with candy corn for me.
What is your best and EASY Halloween decoration?
