black cats & friendly ghosts

black cats and friendly ghostsblack cats and friendly ghostsblack cats and friendly ghostsblack cats and friendly ghostsblacks cats and friendly ghostsblack cats and friendly ghostsblack cats and friendly ghostsblack cats and friendly ghosts Supplies needed: scissors, pencil, black and white card stock (or poster board), string of lights, hole puncher, and black cats & friendly ghosts template (click on link to download, but can totally make this any size you feel will work best for you and your lights).

Directions: 1) Cut out template. 2) Trace onto card stock and cut out. 3) Hole punch the eyes. 4) Attach to the string of lights by putting the lights through the eyes. 5) Hang up somewhere spooky!!!

So easy and fun! Totally my motto when it comes to DIYs! We did this while Soul was napping and the big girls did the tracing and cutting. I punched the holes (and took the pictures). They’ve been wanting to decorate for Halloween and this was the solution. I just need to get some little pumpkins to put on the mantle and I say we’re all set.

I remember when I was little and wanting to decorate my house for Halloween. Once I traced multiple copies of my foot onto construction paper, cut it out, went out to the driveway, and attempted to tape it to the concrete leading to the front door of the house. I don’t think it stuck very well and ended up just bringing them all back inside. I also dreamed up making fake tombstones to put all over the front yard, but poster board doesn’t really survive too long in the grass. Those were my Halloween decorating dreams as a kid. If you celebrate Halloween, how do you decorate?

    What a great idea!!
    The ‘boo-photo’ has totally convinced me that we should make these, too. 🙂

  • this is so brilliant I can’t even handle it — i’m gonna put this on my friday Cool Stuff list next week for sure!!!!

    Ok, i have tried 8 times to read the tutorial on the clutch purse. As soon as it comes up, it reroutes to this page. I started at Allfreesewing. Is it no longer available? it was a new email from Allfreesewing.

    thanks

    • Rubyellen says:

      Hi. Sorry. Allfreesewing is linking to an old page on my old site which reroutes to the new site. It can be found on here but I definitely want to redo instructions for it soon.

  • Miki says:

    What a great idea? Can I ask you where you bought the lights?

    Have a fun weekend!

    Adorable and affordable…so fun for the kiddles!

  • JadeC says:

    I love this! So cute! I have to ask, where did you get the white lights? I have wanted some for a while but can’t find them. And I think this wouldn’t look quite as cute with christmas lights that have green cords.

  • Sofia Gil says:

    Lovely idea to make with small ones, love it, congratulations!

  • Ana says:

    What a great idea! I have to make this. I haven’t put any Halloween decorations inside. The girls will love this!

  • Sophie says:

    Wow, this is such a cute idea! I especially love the cat ones.

  • Chris says:

    Thanks!!!! Going to have fun making these 🙂

  • Mindy says:

    Came from prudent baby – love this idea! I may just do it for my daughter’s preschool!

  • Ana says:

    I’ve been thinking of ways to decorate my wall and so far this is the best. 😀 But I have to ask, won’t the paper catch fire due to overheating or something? Or is there a way of adjusting it? Thanks a lot! :)))

    thank you for all of this scone inspiration! My favorite looks like it will be triple berry, but also like the interesting cranberry orange pairing. I had heard of it, but didn’t really know what it was. I knew it as a Mexican soup with hominy in it.

  • Harry says:

    a few of the adults were super stoked about them too;) The only negative thing that happened was when I had the treats displayed on the table for several hours…some of the rice krispie stars eventually started to get too soft, drooped, and fell off:( The only solution I can think of is to keep the treats in the refrigerator until ready to serve, but then you can’t have them displayed. Has anyone else run into this problem? Any other solutions? Maybe make the treats thicker?Craft Beer Sacramento

    Keep in mind that the Food and Wine Event Festival opens with the World Showcase at 11 am each day. I suggest you visit early to avoid crowds and experience as much of the festival as you can!

    I am IN LOVE with the “Totally” mega-franchise (and baby Steadman/Otis was finally born today – so huge hooray to the Laime-Rosen family!) and I re-listened to the Jason Mantzoukas episode from the last laugh just this afternoon. I laughed out loud. Again. For the third time. Thank you for getting me hooked last year! I am also a recent mommy, so the Totally Mommy podcast has become a big time favorite of mine also.

    Hello, Thanks for a chance at your fabulous giveaway. This machine looks like a miracle worker to me. We are blessed to have 7 grandchildren in and out of our home at any given time 7 days a week. Sometimes all 7 are here, other times, they come and go in handfuls. Our little darlings range in age from 8 weeks old to 14 years old. Five boys and two girls comprise the group, the 8 week old is a girl. One of those adorable princes is crawling like crazy and another has just started to walk. Every room in our home, save the bathrooms, has hardwood floors.

    What wonderful memories and pictures for your family! Growing up my grandparents had a place on Crystal Lake and then Lake Michigan, both in northern Michigan. I loved running the dunes along Lake Michigan! We have a cabin in Twin Lakes, Colorado and the cold, clear water reminds me of northern Michigan, although it is actually colder (48 degrees on Memorial Day) so we do more wading than swimming. We like to drive the boat to deserted beaches and enjoy picnics and playing in the sand. The cold water scares most boaters away (and the lake is surrounded by national forest, so no houses directly on the lake), so often we are the only ones out there! There are some warmer reservoirs in southern Colorado that are better for swimming and not quite.

    I love the traditional look–you still managed to keep it modern and fresh.

    I don’t think it should impact the employment. You will have to talk to the insurance company about what’s covered and what’s not. She has insurance in US right? She should call them and let them know about the medical condition and they would be able to guide and let you know about the costs.

    This works for me as a person with a reasonably uncluttered inbox – I get less than 50 emails a day. If I have an email I need to take care of but can’t/won’t do it right now, I make sure to keep it unread and I can’t mark it as read until I’ve actually finished that task. The way my inbox is organized, my unread emails are always on top. So that way it’s really hard to forget about something or let it get lost in your inbox, since it’s always there waiting for you to take care of it! pegasus bilet sorgula
