This time last year I declared that I couldn't wait anymore and I put up my Halloween decorations. Of course, they went up early again this year. There's lots of stuff I hope I have time/money to make but I will show you what I have up for now.
This hangs on the inside of my front door.
Pretty easy to do, just cut out square paper and then make a star with card stock cover it with glitter and glue a glitter covered letter on top. Then glue marabou around the square and hang it with ribbon to one of your husband's old hangers that you will find in his closet. Then add some poofy tulle.
Crabby tree from Walmart Halloween Crap 2008:
The entryway table:
My mom gave me this candle from Ikea. Perfect! It might be my fave thing.
Plain old styro pumpkin from Walmart. Dressed it up with some ribbon and of course, tulle. It's a recurring theme in our house.
This might be my most favorite decoration I have ever made:
I sewed these pumpkins last year. You can find the instructions here.
This pumpkin was plain brown. I bought it last year and couldn't decide what to do with it. It took me a whole year to figure it out, I guess.
Table centerpiece which doesn't really sit on the table. My kids would destroy it in about 2 seconds.
This arrangement hung from my chandelier last year but it wouldn't work in our new house due to the ceilings being so much lower. So, I found an alternate place for it:
I love this sign. I leave it up year round but it works really well for Halloween:
The top of the media cabinet:
Last year, I bought plain black candles from Walmart for around $0.50 and then put sticky back rhinestones on them. Looks pretty nice, I think.
The mirror in the kitchen. I need to change out that sign for something Halloweenish.
This witch frame is one of the first Halloween decorations I ever made. I used an old photograph that my grandma gave me. It was actually from a stack of sample cards that were from an old photography studio. I have no idea who that woman is. Hope she's cool with being made in to a witch.
That's it for now.
