I love having seasonal wreaths on my front door, but I don’t love storing them at the end of each holiday. They always end up smashed or deformed or worst of all–full of spiders and cobwebs.
I wanted a wreath that would go with me from season to season with little design effort. Here is what I created last fall:
I used burlap ribbon to create the wreath and embellish it each season with an inexpensive plaque or oversized ornament. This particular Valentine’s ornament I made myself. Totally wonky and by no means perfect, just like me. 🙂
What do you have on your front door?
So it’s two days before (or the morning of!) Halloween and your teen son decides he really ISN’T too old to go trick-or-treating again this year. What do you do?
Here is my solution for a quick and easy last-minute costume:
Presenting, Clark Kent
It’s definitely not a bird nor a plane, but this Superman definitely turned the heads of some teen girls last week at our church’s Trunk or Treat!
We had all the pieces at home, all I needed to buy was the superman logo tee shirt, which I picked up at my local Target.
Clark Kent wears:
- Black high top chucks (Converse One-Stars from Target):$17 on clearance
- White Dress Shirt (owned) Free
- Tie (Owned–You can get a shirt/tie combo at Walmart for $10) Free
- Dress Slacks (Owned–You can find dress slacks at Walmart for $10) Free
- Black glasses (3D movie theater glasses) Free
- Superman tee shirt (Target) $11 after Cartwheel discount
- Good looks: Priceless!
My total cost: $28 by reusing some items he already owned…technically only spent $11, since I had bought the Chucks a few weeks ago, but these were his first time wearing them, so I added it in. 😉
