Making Curtains a Little Creepy

We're getting ready for our annual Halloween party. With the exception of a couple years, we have been holding a Halloween party since we moved into this house 9 years ago.  Our neighborhood gets CRAZY during trick-or-treat time so family and friends hang out at our house and it is a great time!  Can't wait.

So we have been decorating the house for the big night.  Today my daughter and I make some easy curtain embellishments in the forms of some creepy creatures.  Hobby Lobby had these great Halloween shapes you can decorate.

We decided to decoupage them with some Mod Podge and some wrinkled tissue paper.

The key is wadding up your tissue paper really good and then carefully un-wadding.

Then you cover one side with Mod Podge and press down on the tissue paper.  We let that side dry and then did the other side.  I used an Exacto knife to trim the excess tissue paper.

They came with the black tie so I tied one on each curtain rod - two in the dining area and one in the living room.

I think they turned out great!  And it was such and easy and fun Sunday afternoon project!

Don't forget our Happy Hour Link Party happening this Wednesday!!  Hope to see you there!
