R.I.P. Halloween Stone

RIP Stone 026

A few days ago I made an address stone from a scalloped edge garden stone.  Well the three little scallops across the top made me think I could do something with it for Halloween.  So this is what I came up with.  

 RIP Stone 006

I simply spray painted the stone black and then use some outdoor craft paint and my letter stencils to make it. 

RIP Stone 021

Yesterday it was 92 degrees.  And this morning it is beautiful and in the 60’s headed for a high in the low 70’s. 

So much more like Fall.  I AM SO HAPPY!!

I’ll be pulling out a few more Halloween decorations today. How about you?

These stones might make cute sets of 3 candy corn or pumpkins.   For Christmas time I am thinking maybe “Ho, Ho, Ho”.  Any other ideas?

I must be the only one that is loving the hot weather! The other day, Caden said that he was ready for some cooler weather! I think I will enjoy the heat for as long as we have it:)

Very cool idea, love it! I've been into the white pumpkin/hat photo from BHG with 'Ichabod' written on it lately...just did one for my porch. 'Ichabod' with a hat sitting by it might be cute:)
Happy Fall Lisa!

Very cool. I am so "borrowing" this. How about B O O for Halloween.

Oh, cute, Lisa! How about "Boo", "Joy", I'll bet there are quite a few things you could do with this. I have a large stone in my backyard that would make a perfect gravestone! I'd love to find something temporary to put on it to make it a gravestone for Halloween. Of course, it is in the yard and nobody else will see it. Maybe I'll do it up with the dog's name in the hopes she'll stop digging under the gazebo for the rabbits!

I love these posts but I'm curious...do you ever venture out of the black and white phase or do you find it so versatile that you just choose to stick with it?

I am a black and white gal but my kids are color happy so I can't get away with too much black and white in the house.
