Anywho... Halloween was a very long day for us. We spent 6 hours at the dealership buying me a new car. By the time we got home, baby and I were starving and we'd missed half of the neighborhood kids. So I ended up with 18 full-sized candy bars that I'm sure won't last as long as they should. But I still donned my last-minute Halloween costume and smiled for the little princesses and Jedi Knights.
In a very rare turn of events, I have actually posted a picture of my pregnant self on the internet. Mainly because I thought the shirt I made was worth sharing. I found some skeleton stencils on Pinterest and used my Freezer Paper T-Shirt tutorial to paint the design on my shirt.
I thought of the idea a while back and just never really got around to doing the actual work. So when Halloween morning rolled around and I didn't have a cool display, I launched into action. First, I removed some labels from a few beer bottles. I soaked them in hot, soapy water for a few minutes, then scraped the labels and residue off with a drywall knife. I dried them and gathered them up with the other jars and bottles I bought at A.C. Moore. They were on sale for something like a dollar a piece.
Once I had the bottles I wanted to use, I set up a spot in the yard to start painting them. I used a cardboard box and sprayed them two at a time.
Until next year...
