Halloween tree!!

My little stinker-pot has a stomach bug today…oh…my…word. I’ve been cleaning up, mopping up and wiping up puke-a-duke most of the day. Whew…projectile throw up days are such a blastedy-blast!!
Buuuuut…..I wanted to share my Halloween tree that I made the other day…since it is getting closer…and closer to TRICK or TREAT time!! Yipeeeeeeeeee!!!
To make the tree I used a bunch of stuff I already had. I used an old, rusty bucket; a string of left-over orange lights; a spray-painted branch from a backyard tree; and ribbon. Seriously EASIE PEASIE!!

I found a branch in my back yard and spray-painted it black…and then with a little bit of BLINGY silver glitter spray. I also found a rusty, bucket that already had dirt in it and poked the branch in to stand up! I painted the number 3 on the bucket…who the heck knows why…I just felt like it needed it.

Jaxon helped paint the number three too…it was pretty CUTE!! My little helper loves to HELP!!
After our PAINT JOB, I threw in the string of lights. {Side note: I bought these about 2 years ago at the DG…I’m sure they have them every year!}

To finish it off I cut small strips of Halloween ribbon and tied bows all over the branches…and VIOLA!
