Halloween Cookies

Halloween Cookies:
I bought ready-made cookie dough and tried to make "candy corn" cookies. You can't really see the yellow too well but the boys still thought they were cool.

Just divide the dough into thirds and dye two of the three. Roll all of them up and put in the fridge for at least an hour. When firm I rolled them out and stacked the flattened dough. I rolled it up like a jelly roll and then sliced it. They baked out HUGE! It looked like one big cookie. So I took my biscuit cutter and cut out cookies while they were still warm.

Halloween Tree

The boys and I made a Halloween Tree this weekend.

We went for a walk and I saw this branch and thought we could do something with it.

I wanted to paint it black but only had orange spray paint on hand. Helping me spray the branch was of course was the boys' favorite part.

I went to Joann's intending on buying those pre-made ornaments to hang on it but really liked this these felt stickers instead. So I just made them into ornaments.

I bought one of those green foam thingy's to hold our "tree." And some black felt to make a little tree skirt.

Then the boys decorated it. We bought a black spider web that goes from the tree up to our picture frames that are hung on the wall. I stuck a white pumpkin next to the tree but still playing around with the display. It was fun to do and the boys really enjoyed it!
