Here's how it started. A pile of stuff...a bird house from Home Goods, small plastic pumpkins, spooky trees, mini hay barrels, little toy cats (borrowed from Boo) & a can of spray paint. This isn't all of the supplies. It's mostly for effect.
And fast forward to the reveal...tah, dah!!! (click on pictures to enlarge)
Last year I bought the cutest little kids in Halloween costumes (artist: Lori Mitchell) & knew I had to make a special place for them to trick-or-treat.
See, I'm not all about the scary side of Halloween. I like the cute, fun side as well. I love, love how it turned out. And my kids love it too. I still want to add a couple of things. Like putting a light inside the house so it will glow & I would love to hang a big moon on the wall between the two trees on the right. Having a hard time finding one. Any suggestions on how I could make one?
Note: That is a player piano that you see. I realize it is not very cute but we enjoy it so much & it was a killer deal for $80 (which included about 20 reels of music). Someday it will be fixed up with paint or stain & new little windows. By the way, those windows have a little light inside of them & there's also a switch that will make it sound like an old honky-tonk piano. My kids love this piano.
