My crafting day did not start out well.
I went to make one of these really cool chalkboard pumpkins with my brand new can of chalkboard paint and look what I found under the lid...
Yes, I had to paint with a brush. I know, it's a shame, but sometimes you have to resort to such things.
While my first coat was drying I decided to haunt up some birdhouses.
I started with a couple of Dollar Store birdhouses that I painted with my working can of black spray paint
Keeping with my music theme this year, decoupaged some sheet music onto the roofs, distressed the edges with ink and then spot sprayed some stone-effect spray paint onto the walls to make them look moldy.
Dug into my bone box, moss bag, and glitter bugs for embellishments.
Did you know that not every household has these? Hard to believe, I know.
I added some glitter bats I'd made earlier too.
And now I can add these wonderful little birdhouses to my front room and see if the kids notice.
It's kind of a Mom-obsessed-with-Halloween game that we play when they come home from school.
Now I just need to clean-up...
Bad mom. hee hee hee. Don't tell the kids that I didn't clean up as I went!
