Ummm…people. It will be NOVEMBER in a mere days. What in the world? Less than two months till Christmas! And I still had my beachy vignette up till today. ;)
The new floors kind of put a wrench in the Halloween decor – most of it has been outside till today. But I finally got a little spooky display going with just days to spare!
My Craigslist buffet in the foyer was such a great find – and it’s so fun to snazz it up every season. I love having this space to decorate!:
I threw this together today – and when I say threw it together I’m for real. I had about a one spare hour today and was determined to get some Halloween out!
The Bub and I started with the bats:
Aren’t they AWESOME?!
We sat at the Silhouette machine for a while the other night cutting out meeellions of bats. (OK, so that part was already done. The rest of the throwing together happened today.)
To keep them from getting too serious, we added some googly eyes to some, some red sticky stones to others:
I did something similar last year, but I wanted to go big this year! I just put them up with sticky tacky stuff and made them “fly” up the wall.
We found the black Halloween house earlier this season at HomeGoods. Soooo spooky!
The only other new purchase was the sparkly skeleton that I picked up at Meijer a couple weeks ago (on clearance). I love his bling! And his cute little feet:
The BOO letters were a craft from a few years ago, and the “art” usually sits on our mantel this time of year:
And of course, I had to bring back the little surprise on the lampshade:
The spider webs and spiders are just black paper and I used little dabs of sticky tack to get them to stay up.
All of that adds up to one festive Halloween display!:
I smile every time I look at it, and the Bub is SO happy we finally got some Halloween inside the house. Just in the nick of time!
Do you decorate much for Halloween? Has the time gotten away from you like it has me?
