Free Halloween Decor!

I've been painting a few things for Halloween.  While I had my black craft paint out I thought, why not paint on some of the picture around the house?  You know- add a little Halloween flair. 

I'm sure Grandpa Barrus doesn't mind dressing up in a mask.

I couldn't believe the impact I got when I added some doodles to these paintings.  Just a little paint created a Halloween spirit in our staircase. 





Of course, while I was at it, I had to dress up one of our pictures. The kids LOVE it. 

I painted onto the glass protecting the pictures.  It wipes right off with windex or water. Simple and Free. I love it. 

p.s. I wouldn't try this on any original artwork not covered with glass. 

Here is a list of Parties I link to.

What a great idea. I'm thinking reindeer antlers for Christmas, party hats for new years, bunny ears at easter, oh the possibilities.

Hopped on over from Sawdust and paper scraps. I loved this, you had way to much fun and what a super idea. Grandpa Barrus looks like one of my pioneer ancestors - that unique shaving of the face and leaving the beard on the neck - yuck! Glad fashion has changed.
