NQR - Preparing for Halloween updated with pics

Recommended Posts

I actually haven't done any quilting since the move. Spent most of the time unpacking, repairing sprinkler heads, and all of the fun things that come with moving into a new to me but older home. Today however I spent most of the afternoon getting ready for all of the little hobgoblins. I think I get a bigger kick out of it than they do. We bought some cheap little pumpkin and ghost lights to string up and then my wife showed me this great idea using toilet paper or paper towel rolls. You cut out scary eyes and then we bought some dark purple Christmas looking lights that will go inside the roll. Poke them in the shrubs, plug them in and you have little creatures looking at you  :angry: . We gave it a trial run on a few this evening and I think it's going to be the coolest. Maybe I'll be able to take a decent picture and post it anyone is interested.

Pinterest has that same DIY idea. Saw it last year. Cute!

I think my wife saw it on a Facebook post. I would have never even thought of such a thing. It's fairly inexpensive, but since it's toilet paper rolls you have to plan months ahead :lol:

I love it!  We don't get tricksters as our drive way is long and curvy and up hill and such.  They just pass us on by!
