Halloween’s in the house! I have to say, I’m not one of those people that LOVES Halloween. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a holiday, and you know I love an excuse to change out a little decor and get festive, except for the costume part–sooo not a costume person. Oh, and that whole glitter explosion at Halloween time is pretty appealing to me too — Oooo shiny things!! Anyway, I pulled out my box of Halloween decorations this year, yes, I actually only have one (although it’s large) and picked a few things to put up on my table in my entryway, and called it good. The box is still sitting in my living room though, so maybe I can count that as decorating the living room too??? I mean, the lid’s still off, so you can see what’s inside.
I made the rag garland and pom pom garlands last year, and I’m still sort of in love with them, so they made it out of the box, along with a Trick or Treat sign I made a few years ago, and my favorite glittery black pumpkins (from Hobby Lobby). Those two little pumpkins are probably my favorite piece of Halloween decor I own. They just make me happy.
The dollar store had some AWESOME Halloween stuff this year, like these black birds (looovvvee them), glitter skulls, and the the spider web place mat (in the first picture). And you know the disco balls weren’t going anywhere. I changed out the feathers from my fall decor for some black ones (from Hobby Lobby, like $2.00/bag) in a candle holder from Target (fill it with beans to stand the feathers up).
I left my embroidery hoops with my Grandma’s doilies, and added another one with some fabric I used in my hoops last year. I had visions of spiders crawling up the lace, sort of like fabulous spider webs, but I couldn’t find my plastic spiders and really have just been too lazy to run back to the dollar store for a bag of spiders, #RealLife, so use your imagination
Are you a big Halloween decorator? Am I the only person that hates the whole costume thing? Please tell me I’m not!
