I LOVE Halloween!

I love Halloween. No really, I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!!

Costumes, creepy, spooky, candy, skeletons, spiders, and bats—Oh my!

I think I have as much Halloween décor as Christmas décor. Most of the Halloween décor I have bought is of the inexpensive variety from Target $1 Spot, Dollar Tree, Walmart 97¢ OR have been product samples from my retail industry jobs purchased at discount employee only rates—lucked out on a carload of pumpkins and skulls one year! So excited that day!!!

Here are this years less than a 97¢-$3 finds from Walmart, Dollar Tree, Target $1 Spot.

Here is my to do list for creepin’ up our place for Halloween:

  • Stage our home by removing all the color except natural wood grain, black, white, grey and other neutrals.

  • Cover a lot of the furniture with white fabrics/sheets.

  • Hang white sheets to replace my curtains.

  • Create spooky vignettes where normal décor would be.

  • Fill clear glass jars and containers with candy corn and tea lights or creepy contents like spiders and spider webs, eyeballs, etc.

  • Make goblin stew (chili), cider, chicken salad monsters.

  • Creating my costume from something out of my wardrobe.

  • Decorate the front porch/yard with tombstones, pumpkins, grim reaper, etc…

  • Create craft coloring station for the little kiddos.

Décor I design myself from home is made out of paper and can be printed off my own printer like framable art and food labels.

Each year I do take on a few crafty Halloween projects.

This year I’m going to try and tackle these:

  • turning our garage into a dark cave with bats and glow in the dark creepy creatures to create the dance floor. (Disco ball is still up from last year.)

  • make photo backdrop and photo booth word bubble picks for guest photos

I’ll be posting some of this years party pics after our party so stay tooOOOoned!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
