Halloween is just around the corner so that means it is the time of the year to celebrate the spirits, both the type that haunt your house and the kind that will haunt your mornings if you overdo it. While much of the country is starting to feel the effects of autumn, that time when a chill can be felt in the air and leaves start to change color, we here in south Florida sometimes have trouble getting into the season. After all, it is hard to get in the Halloween spirit when it is still prime flip-flop weather outside and our palm trees stay green year-round. Here is a fun and easy project that lets you get in the Halloween spirit while still enjoying the beach or any other outdoor activity.
