2010 Enter if you Dare

 I am mixing this year both Fall and just a tad of Halloween for now. My older boy Alex has a big Halloween party and we I really have fun decorating for the big event.  We do not have haunted houses, or lawn witches....but I do get creative with skeleton bones and games.  Any fun games I would love to hear your suggestions.

I made a fun wreath I thought I would share with you.
Ok quick tutorial on the wreath.  I first spray painted it black.  Remember that orange silk yarn? Well I wrapped some around the bigger vine part of the wreath. Sprayed some pine cones black....embellished with two black feathers and a crow! That was it.
This week I wanted to participate with Miss Jenny's rainbow Alphabet party.  But wait, I do not have the color INDIGO anywhere in my home, and I really want to incorporate it in this post. Although, very much a brown nose, I do not have time to come up with two posts for the day.  We all know Indigo is a cross between blue and violet see the color wheel below.

SO BAM!!~ I looked around and what did  I see?

I made a little styrofoam wreath for my younger boy the other day. He is a candy freak and I told him he can have a piece a day after his homework. He loves picking away at this thing.
Hope you enjoyed your little tricks and treats over here at Debbiedoos!

I love your take on Halloween! What a fun way to have a little bit of "spooky" without it going over into downright "scary"! And, I am definitely going to be stealing your candy wreath idea for my little guy who will start having homework this year!

Great photos! I bet you really do have a Halloween blast at your house. You have to go to the dollar tree. I was there Monday and saw what was packaged as brains! It was sooo gross! It was packaged like meat on styrofoam with cellophane around it. Picture a pound of hamburger from the grocery store, except it looks like a brain! Disgusting! However, those kids would love it, and it's only a buck! Love your wreath too!

Debbie, you are incredibly creative.

Love this little your fall decor (although it's not helping me feel cooler on this 111 degree day...grrrr!)

And love how creatively and cleverly you managed to find some indigo.

You are really neat Miss Debbie.

I'm so glad you link to Rainbow Summer School.

It must be pretty hot where you are since you are so rapidly leaping forward into fall! Your decorating skills are too cute, though, and I'm sure you son loves having such a creative mom.
