Killer Asparagus


There was this great idea I saw on Facebook…Cut eyes in toilet paper rolls and put a glow stick inside. Then hide them in the bushes for Halloween. I love the idea, but in northern MN, we have wind, rain, long nights, and usually snow this time of year.

It took a couple of weeks to figure out a way to make them Minnesota-proof , but the project came together with:

1. Driveway reflectors,

2. Gorilla Tape (everybody knows gorillas are stronger than ducks),  painter’s tape, or masking tape, and

3. Black spray paint.

Foofy reflectors from Bossy Big Sister’s store.

First we broke off the metal bugs, then cut desired eye shape from tape and placed it in center of reflector. Three light coats of spray paint later we had heavy-duty creepy eyes for the ditch. (We did this to both sides.) Once they were mostly dry, I peeled off the tape and ta-dah! Creepy eyes that glow every time a car goes by. (Feel free to wait until paint is completely dry if you are a firstborn and have lots of patience.)

There is a rogue asparagus gone wild next to the house, and it’s perfect for hiding the reflectors.

Another GREAT IDEA that’s fast, cheap and easy…brought to you by the Pajari girls. 🙂
