Boo!!! Trick or Treat.... Smell my Feet.... Give me something good to eat.....
When I was a kid, we used to chant this as we went from house to house. I remember us all running around the neighborhood in our costumes. One year I was a robot... I made my costume out of a refrigerator box wrapped in tin foil. I had a small slit cut to see out of and a 'deposit candy here' opening with a pillowcase hooked to the inside of the box to catch the candy. This was one of those costumes that in theory was awesome, but the practicality of it.... not so brillaint. I could barely navigate front steps. It was hilarious! I thought it looked like a robot, but I'm sure I just looked like a huge box wrapped in tin foil hobbling down the street. It turned out to be unseasonably warm that year... so I baked inside of my toasty box... I could have been a microwave!

We are supposed to be Ragnar and Lagertha, but
I'm afraid we look more like Hagar the Horrible and Helga...lol...
So let's get to some spooky fun! I can't wait to show you my fun project! I made a bunch of Bat Mats... they are so stinkin cute and are a great way to use up leftover scraps of Halloween fabric.
