Our house is finally (mostly) decorated for Halloween. I found so many awesome ideas around the web but didn’t find much time to actually do them. Let’s take a look at what I did manage to complete though!
Lanterns – I posted about creating lanterns for the front porch here and here. They are now in their rightful home and ready for Halloween night. Real candles = only going to be lit for one evening because I’m super cheap.
Spider Wreath – Liz and I had a cradat and made this little jewel for my front door.
Mummy – I jumped on the make your own mummy bandwagon which I first saw here.
Ghosts – Scored these ghosts at my goodwill trip from forever ago for only $.96!
Boo – I pulled together some quick and easy B-O-O letters to add to my hay bale outside and shared the creation here.
Candy Corn Filled Votive Holders – The dollar store to my rescue again. Some $1 vases and candles combined with candy corn. Perfect addition to my little table display.
Dead Pirate – Our yard has always been a refuge for bunnies but it seems a dead pirate has taken up residence in my front lawn now. I’ll let him stay though because it is pretty neat to watch his heart beat at night.
and he brought his own tombstone along.
So, there are the basics of our Halloween decorations. We have a few other items not shown (hanging mummy, purple lights on the porch and some spiderwebbing) because they look much better at night. My photography skills are limited enough that darkness would just completely shut them down.
Now, the top 5 things I wanted to do but time didn’t…always next year right?!
- Scrapbook paper pumpkins
- Pumpkin Treat Holders
- Floating Ghosts
- Candy Corn Bottle Vases
- Burlap Ghost Lights
Did you get all of your decorations completed? Have a list as long (or longer) than mine that are still in the to be completed pile?
