Henry’s been on my case for not decorating the house much yet for Halloween after seeing some spooky houses all decked out this weekend, so we are working on some fun decorating projects this week. This is a really easy DIY idea to spookify your mirrors around the house for Halloween. When you look through the mirror you’ll see a Halloween version of yourself as a bat, ghost, jack-o-lantern, witch, or whatever spooky character you want to make.
Leave them up in various mirrors around the home for a fun Halloween surprise when your family gets up in the morning or for when guests try to reapply their makeup.

Paper bag or plastic wrap
The hardest part was getting the right proportions when you looked into the mirror. The easiest way we found to do it was taping up a piece of plastic wrap or a plastic bag and asking someone to stand comfortably in front of the mirror. Then looking through it, draw on the bag or plastic wrap with a marker where the eyes, mouth, nose are.
