I did a little ghoulish decorating over the weekend. I have never decorated for Halloween before because I have always been teaching. I love how my decorations have turned out so far!! I got my biggest project idea from The Idea Room. http://theidearoom.blogspot.com/.
I got the skeleton man on clearance at Michael’s a few years ago. I love him!! I do have some white pumpkins too. They started as little green pumpkins that I painted ivory and then used rub on letters and metal letters to create BOO on one side and EEK on the other. I got the cute little galvanized planter at the Habitat Re-Store for $2.
I whipped up this cute little plaque yesterday. I just used my silhouette to cut out the witch boots and then added the phrase, “If the shoe fits….” I believe it does. I already had the little plain wood plaque from Dollar Tree and the vinyl. It came with a wire hanger that I had taken off a while back (I’m sure with other intentions in mind that never came to fruition). I just stapled some ribbon on the back to hang. A cheap little sign that would be a great little Halloween gift. I hung it on my garage door along with BOO! in vinyl. Please don’t look closely at the door. It is dirty and gross and will soon be painted black!!
I know this post was ridiculously boring long. I am just so excited about my new found love of Halloween decorating. I have decided to have a Halloween party with a twist: It is going to be a “75% off Costume Party”. It will be the weekend AFTER Halloween and I everyone can buy more Halloween decorations can buy their costumes on clearance!! Is that not the best?! I can also leave my decorations up for another week!! Happy Haunting everyone!!
