4 Silhouettes + 4 Spiders


It's pretty awesome what you can do with photos, rope, painted dollar store candle holders, and a few pipe-cleaner spiders.  I'm pretty happy with the monochromatic Halloween display on our mantel. :)

I got the inspiration for the photo banner from here...just gathered a few old photos of fall and Halloweens gone by, turned them black and white using this app, ordered them as 5x7"s, cut off the corners, glued them onto some black card stock for a clean look, then strung it up!

And my favorite part, two brand new silhouettes of our Littles! This year I used a different method than last year...I just took profile shots of the children, ordered 8x10"s of each, cut them out and painted them black, then put the silhouettes on the canvases. Just a few steps, and makes such a statement. I love them. :)

As you can see, Brooks really enjoys looking at the photos on the banner...his favorite is of him and his cousin Samson at the pumpkin patch last year, he practically pulled it off the rope he was so excited! ;) All of the photos just ooze with Halloween-goodness and sweet memories of fall time.


I'm sharing this over at Whipperberry...go check out other fantastic projects, recipes, and creations people are sharing! :)

Wow! This is amazing! Definitely might have to steal the bunting idea! And I've been wanting to do silhouettes forever but thought they were really difficult. I think I could handle your method though! :)
