Wordful Wednesday


Wordful Wednesday’s are hosted by Seven Clown Circus.

With Halloween around the corner we decided to make salt-dough ghosties and their haunted houses (tissue paper boxes).

Alex and Mac working on the houses.  They put various bats, ghosts and pumpkins on each one.  After the boxes have dried we’re going to go back and add some extras like orange and black pom-poms, etc.
