This weekend, I put up a Witch's Curtain. Here is what Martha's Witch's Curtain looks like:
Martha's Witch's Curtain is made from a heavy-duty garbage bag--you can find the instructions here. The only black garbage bags I had on hand are the super-duper-heavy-duty contractor's bags, so I used a plastic tablecloth from the Dollar Tree. Here's my Witch's Curtain:
It's not quite the same, but I like the effect. I used plastic hooks to hang it, but tape was also necessary to secure it to the porch area.
And with that, I am officially done decorating for Halloween!
I also managed to bake a batch of Martha's Pumpkin Cookies with Browned Butter Icing this weekend:
The Little Guy and Little Miss helped.
I've blogged about these cookies before. The recipe makes a tremendous amount--it says six dozen, and I get about seven dozen cookies each time I make it. Also, the recipe calls for piping the batter onto the cookie sheet. I don't think this is necessary. I've tried both piping the batter and plopping it onto the sheet with a spoon, and both methods work equally well. Save yourself the clean-up and just use a spoon.
Only one more week until one of the funnest days of the year! Happy haunting!
