All that glitters

I have been saying for years now that I want to make/have a Halloween tree. I have decided that this is the year. Over the last 3 years I have collected some Halloween ornaments but have yet to use them. The only thing I really need are Halloween balls (like Christmas ones except in Halloween colours). Because really what's a tree without balls on it? I have looked around and all the Halloween balls are made of glass so I decided to buy some glitter and foam balls because little hands like to touch. Tonight we decorated them. They are not perfect but they are meaningful to me as I know they were decorated with care and love.

I am so happy that J loves to do crafts with me and I am taking every opportunity because I know there will come a day that it won't top her "fun to do" list. Okay...enough mushy stuff..hee hee!

I have an idea for the tree but will only share it if it works out. I must advise that if you are not a fan of crafts you may find the next two months of entries long. Of course I will mix it up but just wanted to give a heads up. Also, I am always up for some ideas/suggestions you may have.

What a great idea! The glue and the balls on sticks (you don't wan't to take that comment out of context!). I still want to try Kim's mask's and may just have to add these to my list. Looks like you had a great time!
