It Just Doesn't Get

any easier than this!
I bought the Cute Halloween Gift Bag just because...well, I had another project in mind for it, but
like so many projects...let's just say it didn't come to fruition...and my friends would say well, imagine that...

so, the bag is just hangin' there on the coat rack...kind of makin' me feel crappy with those unspoken taunts because it is Yet Another Reminder of the Un-Done Things...

but then I get a flash of Cheap Door Decoration Inspiration: find some twigs, paint them black and orange*, stuff them into the bag** and stick on the front door...

as an aside, a good indicator of my Crafting Abilities is that when my husband sees me standing on the driveway, spray painting sticks, he doesn't even ask any more...he just heads in the other direction...
********************************************************************

*The black-and-orange thing didn't work out so well...at least not using both on the same twig...kind of had a Creepy Halloween stripe thing going on...painting each twig a solid colour is a better way to go...unless you like the Creepy Halloween Vibe...I prefer the Cute Halloween Vibe...just sayin'...

**the bag, bein' paper, will not hold up for a long time if you leave in a Naturally Moist Environment like southeastern Georgia...but it'll last several weeks as long you give it a sheltered spot...

I love this idea! Perfect for my level of craftiness (and budget friendly!!!)

Hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
