My girls love to decorate our house for any holiday. They especially love to decorate with decorations they have made. This can prove tricky as my two oldest are 3 and 6 and have me for a mother (in case you haven't guessed by now, I'm a bit concerned with the overall aesthetic).
In order to make us all happy, we have come up with a few simple (yet tasteful) homemade decorations: 1) a bat garland made from black construction paper, black grosgrain ribbon and googley eyes; 2) floating tree ghosts made using styrofoam balls, white fabric and fishing line; and 3) candy corn-filled apothecary jars.
For the candy-filled jars, I used a little trick to save on buying loads of candy. I taped sets of clear plastic cups together which I then stacked in the middle of the jars. I poured the candy corns over the cups and no one was the wiser. I love the colors of the candy corn and I also love that the apothecary jars are perched on a tall cabinet, far away from little hands. Happy decorating!
