Halloween Wooden Cat Box

Hey everyone!  Fall is in full swing and Halloween is almost here.

And what is something that goes with Halloween besides witches hats, pumpkins, and ghosts?  Well…black cats of course!

Do you remember when mom and I went to Home Depot a few weeks ago and made wooden boxes?  She shaped hers like a pumpkin and I shaped mine like a cat.  Guess what?  I finished mine!  Here it is!

So I painted the cat black and painted the front of the box in chalkboard.  I added the word BOO for the season of Halloween.


I also added flowers and a red bow to make the cat more festive and more like a cat.  cat box

I love how this turned out!  It turned out cute and I am able to change it for the different seasons.  I can’t wait to see what I make the next time I do a Home Depot project…which is tonight!


The Corner News-September 18, 2015

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of The Corner News!  Here is what went on these past two weeks.

Number 1: Sorry that this post is late…ooppss…

Number 2: I got a promotion at work!  Hooray!  I am now in a supervising position where I am a Team Leader.  I have to work at the other location than where I was originally, but I started this past Wednesday and I am still very new to it.  Thankfully, the other Team Leaders are very nice and have helped me with the differences.

Number 3: Mom and I went to build some rustic pumpkins stand thingies…We had quite a bit of fun doing it.

First, we took a selfie!

Then we hammered the nails in that we needed to build the box.

Next we drew our designs to cut them out.  I didn’t want to be traditional and decided to draw out a cat instead of a pumpkin.

Here is my cat.

And here is mom’s pumpkin.

They aren’t done obviously, but this is how far we got.  And this is the exciting things that have happened these past weeks.  Hope you have a great weekend!
