Okay, time for a little Trendwatch fun! I hope you still have some room for Halloween decor, because these ideas quite possibly will inspire you to get creative and actually make something! Shocking, I know!
Todays trend is: Black & While Halloween
The other day, I was perusing the Better Homes and Gardens website for Halloween Decor. Lots of great Black and & White Halloween ideas.
Here's an idea to make your own creepy dishtowels in Black and White:
Lastly, from BHG is this white pumpkin idea. I've got a white pumpkin downstairs that's been staring at me, just daring me to put something on it. I'm not a huge fan of carving pumpkins. I don't much care for the slimy mess. But slapping some vinyl on one? I'm all over that. I wish I had that hat, though.
Enough of you BHG, let's switch over to the iconic Martha Stewart. Here's a cute idea. At least, I think it's cute. My kids would probably refuse to go into the bathroom. This would be cool done in some removable glass etch vinyl:
Also from Martha, check out this skirt! Of course, as cool as it is, I just couldn't bear to wear a spider on me, even if it's fake and two-dimensional. Spiders of any kind are not welcome in my house. It would be an awesome witch skirt though, wouldn't it?
Speaking of parties... why not some black and white party food! Here's an idea from myrecipes.com for Bittersweet Chocolate Skeleton Cookies. Those boys are just sitting around all year long doing nothing, flirting with the angel cookie cutters, leaving crumbs around, etc... let's put them to work a couple of months early! Time they earned their keep around here. These are so cute I just want to bite their little heads off!
Time to get crafty, people!
