Halloween Spirit. I can't believe it's already October! Seems like just the other day we were starting school. Now that it's here... it's time for some decorating! Decorating for Halloween/Fall comes in a close 2nd to Christmas. As I type I even have instrumental Halloween music playing in the background. I love it! In the years past I decorated more for Fall using pumpkins and leaves so I could leave everything up until I switched for Christmas. I wanted a bit of change this year though... something a bit spoookier! I've been seeing Pinterest overflowing with decoration ideas. I also wanted to use my apothecary jars.
Here's some ideas I pinned to help inspire this year's decorations:
I started looking for new decorations for the last few weeks and finally put things together this morning. Here's how they turned out:
|On the other side of the pumpkin is a 'jack-o-lantern' type face. You can see it through the window!|
|Just loved finding these mini skeletons!|
|Watch out for rats on the loose!|
For now... that's what I have. I'll keep an eye out for other decorations for around the house. I also want to decorate the front porch. I have some 'webs' that I'll stretch across the corners but I'd love to add one of those chalkboard signs with a fun Halloween saying. Just need to find one! I'd also love to create some pillows similar to these for the couch:
Halloween spirit is in full swing! Now we just need to decide this year's costumes. We ALWAYS wait until the last minute. Which I hate because we end up paying an arm and leg! We always incorporate the 'girlfriends' into our costumes so that makes it a bit challenging at times but so cute in the end! Here's some of our last couple years:
|To protect and serve!|
Can't wait to see what this year will bring... we've been talking about Scooby Doo?! Koda as Scooby Doo, Mishka as Scrappy-Doo and Tyler and I could be Fred and Daphne! How fun would that be?! Guess we'll see what we can find in the next few weeks! Until then...
