I’ve found some really cute things to do for Halloween decor this year. I just thought I’d share some links because the boys and I have had a lot of fun doing some of them!Dillon bought me a Country Living magazine and I saw a pic of them in there and LOVED it. HERE is the link for the bat template. I didn’t have any stiffened felt, so I looked online and found out you can do it yourself. HERE is how you can stiffen felt.
The skull head I got at Honk’s dollar store. I still haven’t tried the light in it with a battery. I had the spiderweb bowl and fabric from last year.
Martha Stewart has a TON of cute ideas. Naturally. HERE is what gave me this idea, although the one on the website it awesome. The ghosts, I found HERE. Skeletons were from Wally World, and the black orb balls I found HERE. I didn’t use glossy paint like her, and Joanne’s didn’t have balls without holes, so hers are way cooler, but maybe next year I’ll do them over the right way. She told me she found the balls at Hobby Lobby.
This plate was on sale at Homebodies. It was the most expensive thing I’ve ever bought for Halloween. It was $7.00.
I already had the candle, and I had Dillon cut me a block of wood, which I spray-painted black. I typed “orange damask” into google in images, found what I wanted, copy and pasted, and worked with the fonts on BOO until I liked it. Printed, and modge podged it on.
The boys always love making this spider with me. HERE is the link to the spider, although we just spray-painted the eyes this year.
Every sign you see either hanging or in the flower boxes were all a buck. I got them last year. And that is all! It’s been a fun year! No wonder the internet can be so addicting. I love finding new fun crafts to do!
