more super simple Halloween decorations

remember my super cute pirate ghost made with a McDonald's milk jug?  Well...I had/have several of those little jugs around the house (or in a bag of 'craft recycles').  Kim at Frost Me came up with the great idea of writing BOO on them 
(and adding a battery powered tea light - still looking for those).  
That Kim's so smart!! 


Spray painted the whole thing...let it dry & removed the vinyl stickers

picked up some inexpensive flowers at the Dollar Tree (that's right..they were $1)
and I got myself a purdy arrangement of Halloween flowers.

the best thing about this(besides it being cheap)is that I can use it pretty much anywhere in my house and NO, I don't usually keep flowers on my floor :)

I'm working on a project that requires overnight drying.  
I CAN NOT stand to wait..but this time, I will.  
I hope it turns out as cute as I hope.  
It involves a pizza pan and chalkboard paint.

That's super cute! Love your pirate ghost too. Now I'm mad at myself for throwing those little bottles in recycle... although I'm sure I'll have a few gathered by the time halloween rolls around :)
