Halloween Pumpkins & Window Eyes

Halloween is my favorite holiday. The decorations are playfully macabre, dressing up is encouraged and there is candy EVERYWHERE! Here are some excellent ways of jump starting your holiday decorations:

The Lazy Woman's Pumpkin
See how this pumpkin was made? No elaborate carving using skill, patience or stencils...all you have to do it hollow out the critter, glitter the inside and out then set up a diorama with toys and moss. Fun + Easy = OTP (or a girl on spring break but that's an entirely different holiday)

Creepy Halloween Eyes
Spooky Eyes of DEATH
It has been pointed out to me that this is probably not the correct name for this craft. To these people I say "Ha!" and "Whatever." This one is ridiculously simple but yields an excellent result. Exacto knife, meet black construction paper and tape. Throw a pencil in there and make some magic!
