Thanks to the creative efforts of my two daughters, I have Halloween decorations all around the house – on walls, shelves, chairs – just about every surface. The oldest daughter made the wreath and the three items that are on my piano – the scottie pumpkin is new this year. Her blog at Salmagundi Express describes exactly how she carved and painted this pumpkin.
Some more of her work:
The youngest daughter made the little Dracula and pumpkin man along with the door handle piece when she was a teenager. She also made the cute candle holders.
Her main handiwork now is crocheting the most gorgeous afghans and I have one for every occasion. She also contributes a large number of these every year to the local Linus Project.
I love to look around my house and see so many beautiful things that my daughters have made for me over the years.
