I hope you guys are well.
October has definitely rolled in and I’ve been busy decorating my home for Halloween. I try to put things up in the night while the girls are asleep so in the morning they’ll have a spooky surprise. We’ve also been brain storming on how we’re going to put together our family costumes because we’ve chosen a group theme this year. So far, my oldest daughter is the only one who has her costume already (bought it online a while back). I just need to buy some white, long, satin gloves and take some major wrinkles out of her dress…that’s all the hints you’re going to get. 🙂
Here’s a look at some of my Halloween decorations either taken out of storage or recreated:
I had some bats stored away, but since I like them so much I decided to make some more. I simply used a bat template, printed on cardstock, and then traced with a pencil on black construction and cardstock paper. I taped them up on several walls in my living room as well as the entry wall. As soon as you walk in your eyes simply get drawn to them.
I made this pennant banner last year! I placed it in the hallway outside my front door.
I went to the craft store and found these small foam cutouts, in packs of five, and just taped them up in my living room.
I searched for ghost templates and printed these cuties out on cardstock and just added googly eyes.
And last, but not least, my door monsters. Last year, I was inspired by a picture on Pinterest and decided to make my own. This year, I decided to make two of them. One on the door in my living room and another on the small closet door in my office space/playroom. I used party streamer paper and paper plates for both monsters. My girls absolutely love these guys and so do I.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
