DIY Mystery Footprints

boxwood clippings_halloweenWhen we were little our Gran would throw a party every year for her Birthday and Halloween. She went all out with decor, which always included silhouettes of footprints creeping up the walls and ceilings.

We made our own version this year by making a stencil from outlining one of Brad’s shoes onto black craft paper and staggering them up the wall with tack.

Brad thought it was weird and creepy..exactly what I was going for! I might creep myself out too much to have these in the house until Halloween, but perfect for a party don’t you think? How would your household react?

    This would be a huge hit at my house! It sure beats the life-sized photo stand-up of Tom Hanks (from the movie promotion for Terminal) which lurked in various rooms in our house. It became a running gag to see where we’d find him lurking in the house. Freaky, but oh, so fun!
