What a fabulous weekend! There is nothing I love more than days filled with creative adventures! Fall always brings many DYI projects to Indigo Acres. Each year, we haunt the farm and create a scavenger hunt for about 30+ teenagers, at the end of October. The older they become, the more we have to step up our game! Although we have a rough outline for the Haunt of 2017, our goal this weekend was to begin to “Fall-ify” as much as possible, inside and out!
The first project I had on my list was a bare branch Halloween tree for the living room. We had just finished pruning our large magnolia tree, so I had the perfect gnarly branch for the project.
My next DYI adventure was creating a base for our Department 56 Halloween Village. It was time for some Styrofoam and spray paint action!
The great thing about using rust-oleum spray paint, on Styrofoam, is that it melts it just enough to create a rock surface! It was just perfect!
And a little spray paint action does the trick!
Once everything was completely dry, it was time to set up the village…
Although we were enjoying our inside projects, it was time to “Fall-ify”a bit outside!…
By the way…if the shoe fits, make sure you find a broom and hat to match!
