Googly eye wreath... and deals for you!

Ok, before I share my wreath I need to make sure everyone knows about No More Rack. I know there's a million and one daily deals sites out there, but this is definitely one you need to make note of! They offer 8 GREAT deals every day at noon (Eastern time) and I think this will be a great resource for me (and YOU!) as I work on marking names off of my Christmas list.   But if I'm going to be 100% honest, my favorite thing about it lately has been the deals on BOOTS! Really, ladies, you CANNOT beat the deals the have on boots and I've scooped up two pairs  within the past two weeks. The combined retail value for both pairs is around $200 and I got both of them for less than $30...total.

Another great thing is that you can earn credit by inviting friends to join in on the fun. So, use this link and help me earn credit and then you'll get your own link to share with family and friends. This is one of the main reasons I've been able to score such great deals. Friends = money. haha

Alright, now that you've all joined and are finding amazing deals... I don't decorate our home for Halloween. I don't celebrate it. Adam loves horror movies (I made this piece of art while we watched Cujo) and he always declares October "His Month" to take the horror movie-watching to new levels. That is the extent to which we participate in Halloween. I would rather decorate for fall and focus on the season with family and remembering our many blessings.

That being said, I've had this idea in my head for a while now to make a wreath using googly eyes. I thought October would be a great chance to do something a little creepy...but more silly than creepy. It is a fun way to enjoy the cute and quirky side of Halloween without getting into the evil and dark side.  I used googly eyes from Dollar Tree, ribbon from the dollar bin at Suck-Mart, and another one of those wonderful free cardboard circle forms for the base. I spray painted the cardboard with black paint and just hot-glued the eyes on top. I wish I could have found some other seasonal ribbon that would have matched without using the "Happy Halloween" one, but alas, no luck finding any. I'm not going to make a big deal about it. It's hanging up on my office door at work and everyone knows who I am an what I believe and that my intentions were good!

Love it? Hate it? How does your family have fun with costumes and parties without celebrating Halloween?
