I’m not a huge fan of decorating my home for short term holidays (besides Christmas) but instead prefer to decorate for the season. Any creative holidays projects I plan to make are usually giftable, wearable or just plain fun for kids. Recently, Brielle helped turn a plain canvas tote bag into a cute Trick or Treat footprint bag for this year’s Halloween festivities!
While Hailey was napping, I covered the kitchen floor in newspaper, grabbed a paper plate, foam brush and my Lamp Ebony and Snow Titanium Deco Art Acrylic Paint.
We removed her socks and got to work painting the bottom of those cute feet with white paint.
Once fully covered I pressed her foot down onto the upside down tote bag to create the base to our ghost.
Repeat and we had four cute ghosts!
Look at that face! At two years old Brielle is old enough to know the routine with the wireless remote and camera on a tripod, knowing mommy wants to capture an event WITH her. Now she says “I do it” meaning press the button to close the shutter and take a photo.
During her nap I added some black eyes and a mouth to each ghost then put “Trick or Treat” iron on letters for the final touch.
Now she’s ready to trick or treat!
UPDATE: She had a blast on Halloween carrying around her little handmade tote in the tiger costume I made her. She was a bit concerned and cried at the first two houses but once seeing people were giving her treats, she was totally into it!
