My Husband's Halloween Projects

Today I present you with a couple of projects made by my wonderful husband.  Typically we joke that I make pretty things that serve no functional purpose, and he makes functional things that are often hideous ;)  Of course there are exceptions to this.

We had a carving kit from last year with patterns in it and he and our little girl liked this cat, so he carved it last night.  I'm impressed, that type of thing is not an area of skill for me.  We have an led light inside that changes colors.

Here are the cookie houses he decorated.  He found this kit one day at the grocery store and thought it looked pretty cool.  For the most part he copied the box.  The kids got to put the candy on top.  I was very impressed with how well he used the frosting, so I told him he is helping make the next birthday cake!  To be honest I think he is a lot more naturally gifted in this area than I am.

So, between my decorations and his we have a pretty awesome dining room for Halloween :)

Here's a quick photo of my set up if you haven't seen it yet.

I put together the house and decorated the wine bottles.

Have a happy, safe, and spooky Halloween from the Holders :)
