Ghost Window Cling~ Thrifty Halloween Decor

It doesn’t get thriftier or easier then this ghost!  Really, all you need is a roll of Glad Press and Seal Wrap and some scissors.

The wrap clings, but isn’t super sticky, making it easy to apply and remove when Halloween is over.

Simply roll out your wrap on a flat surface (make sure it is clean, the wrap will pick up any crumbs or debris that it is laid on) and trim to the desired shape and size.  The best part is that since ghosts don’t have any specific shape or size, you can really customize it and get just the look you are wanting.

Carefully stick it to the window, Begin at either the top or bottom rubbing gently with your hand to get any air bubbles out.

And there you have it!  Thrifty, easy and cute!

1 pintrestMy kids love to paint! 
Why not make a craft project with your kids using food coloring and milk ? 
My kids range from 7-17 years of age,
and they all loved making their own piece of art out of bread.
2 ingredientsSupplies:
White Bread
Milk
Clean paint brush
Food Coloring
3 foodcoloringGather 4 cups and 4 spoons-
Pour 1/8 cup of milk in each cup with 3-5 drops of food coloring; stir.
4 painted breadPaint a fun design.  DO NOT apply too much milk so that the bread is soaked. 
Apply a small amount of milk on the brush and lightly paint onto the bread. 
If too much milk is added, it is okay, it will not completely dry when toasted. 
Yet, it taste just the same.
5toasted breadToast the bread.  The toasted area will turn brown where the color is not at. 
My daughter cut out some butterflies with a cookie-cutter and painted them too.
