More Halloween Decorating

It's been crazy around here, but I still managed to get some additional Halloween decorating completed. I have to keep up with my neighbors Mary Beth and Angela that are trying to out-do me this year.

Here's an easy idea anyone can do - and you'd be amazed at how much of an effect it has. So simple, cheap and easy! Last year, I picked up an orange light bulb at Party City and changed it out with the regular bulb on my front porch. It gives a wonderful glow at night and when Halloween is over, I just pop the regular bulb back in! Easy, peasy!


 And here's a little look at our family of pumpkins. Walker picked them out this year - with the exception of the white one - I always add that one to the pile. Then there's the fake one - can you pick it out? We emptied the inside of one of them because Walker wanted me to fry some pumpkin seeds, but I haven't carved anything on the front yet. I can't commit to a design. I decided to name the dude hanging out on the pumpkins Mr. Bones. When I say hey to him every time I drive up to the house, Walker looks at me kinda funny.


Then, my table decorations. I sized one of my free Halloween prints down and placed in a frame from the Dollar Store, then took some chip art stickers from Walmart and scrapbook paper, googly eyes and another Dollar Store frame for the second piece. I picked up the Halloween "tree" from Target two years ago and the jar was inspired by a fun idea I saw online with a jar of bats. I decide to put my own spin on this idea and created "The Boo Crew". Walker loves having his own little jar of ghosts.




So, I hope that gives you some spooky inspiration for Halloween!!! Here's to tons of fun, freeks and frightening follies for us all!
