One thing I love about being in a house after years (and years and years) of apartment living is decorating for holidays. And as soon as the first fall wind blows I am ready to start crafting for Halloween. Usually I steal -- I mean borrow -- ideas from other bloggers and the Pottery Barn catalog (do they ever run out of darling ideas?), but this year I decided to create something all my own.
I started with a bunch of sticks I cut off of our lilac bush in the backyard. I took four of the sturdiest sticks and tied them together to make the foundation, then hot glued other sticks while weaving them around each other on all four sides.
The rest was even easier. Black spray paint, a cute spider cutout, and a bag of spiderwebs. And, just like that, you're done!
I kind of want to make more stick frames and use them for other decor ideas. I think the possibilities are endless.
