#3 - Use batting to stuff old white socks and tie them into three sections, draw little faces and add a scrap piece of fabric for a scarf and use your homemade sock snowmen to decorate windowsills or shelves.
#4 – Use the end chunks of old 2x4s or other boxy chunks of wood you may have laying around and paint them orange. You can either add a painted Jack-o-lantern face or keep them simple. Next use a small stick or wooden dowel for the stem, paint it green or brown and attach the “stem” to the top of the faux pumpkin with hot glue or wood glue. Viola! Homemade pumpkin that can be used for Halloween and Thanksgiving festivities.
#5 – Use white window paint to create the illusion of frost or snow on the edges of your windows, you can also cut out snowflakes from white paper to add an extra pop, guaranteed to bring a smile to your neighbor's faces as they walk by.
#6 – Paint your hand, the palm and thumb brown, and each finger a bright color, put your painted hand on blank paper and then color a face within the thumb and you’ve created a handprint turkey! You can put them on the fridge or post them on your neighbors’ doors for a little pick me up and smile.
