I can't believe November is here! I can almost smell the turkey and Thanksgiving meals that will be making its way to many people's tables in just a few weeks. I was not able to post our Halloween experience last week and some of the Halloween and Fall decor for our house so here it is. Since having kids, I enjoy decorating for Halloween to make it more fun and spooky for them. Here are some of the ways we decorated this year...
|"Knock, knock...if you dare..."|
|Pinecones Brody and I collected outside. We threw on some glitter to give them that little sparkle.|
|I picked up these flowers from Target the day before Halloween. I love the beautiful orange and yellow colors!|
|These are the little pumpkins we brought home from the pumpkin patch and decorated.|
|Glitter pumpkin with cheesy smile.|
|Brody's large pumpkin he picked out. He wouldn't let us carve it.|
|I found these vampire picture frame crafts to transform your family photos to fit in with the Halloween theme. They were at Joann's by Martha Stewart.|
|A Fall wreath we made using real and fake leaves along with some more sparkly pumpkins.|
|I love these owl silhouettes. They came in a pack of 15 for $1 at the Dollar Tree.|
|What's Halloween without some spider webs wrapped around everything?|
Again, we bought a bag at the dollar store and it was able to cover this hutch , our entertainment hutch and some pictures and backs of chairs.
|Mummy also from dollar store. Brody is the one who posed him.|
|Our bathroom had some Halloween decor, too. This guy is just hanging out on the shower rod.|
|We have beer bottles and wine bottles we recycle so I'm always trying to find creative ways to use them.|
I covered the bottles with Autumn-themed scrapbook paper.
|Cute vamp baby|
We had our own little mini Halloween party with kids after they came back from a church Halloween event. We ate a little more, mostly snacks and junk food while we watched "Nightmare Before Christmas."
|We gave the kids a bag of goodies every year with random treats.|
|This is some of the stuff Lyla Brielle had in her bag. She loves coloring and painting.|
|This is just the candy Brody got from us. They got a bunch from the Halloween party we went to and he got a bag from school. Sugar overload for sure!|
|Pic 2 and 3: We decorated the inside of this storage closet for the kids. They use this space to draw and paint on the walls that we have been covering with paper and poster board. The first pic is more Halloween art we displayed on the fridge.|
I'm sugared out from joining in on the candy-munching, too! Now onto November happenings...lots of exciting things going on over here in my household.
Hope you had a fun Halloween
