Hello October!  

Posted by: Julie

Since today is October 1, I thought I'd share how I've decorated a little for Halloween.

Here is my fire place all decked out.
(I'm going to add some more lights to the inside of the fireplace to light up my jack o lantern garland I have tucked in there)
I added a few Halloween touches and some white Christmas lights to my fall rag garland.

Here is my new "Boo" sign with a cute little witch and a great candy dish. I didn't make the "trick or treat" flower-pot candy dish, but it would be SO super simple to do, don't you think?

This year I printed out some pics of the children all decked out for Halloween and added them to my decor. I just printed them on regular copy paper and slipped them into some frames I all ready had. I'm thinking of getting some inexpensive frames and painting them black and adding some spooky touches so they will more Halloweenish.

A little display of Calico Kittens and Cherished Teddies I've had for AGES!

To make this center piece I spray painted a Christmas wreath black and tucked in some jack o lantern garland I already had. Added Mr. Pumpkin and voila!

I don't go "all out" for Halloween, but a few touches here and there makes it feel festive around the house. I've seen some GREAT ideas all around the web showing easy, inexpensive ideas for decorating for fall and Halloween and I may just get the bug to add more. We'll see.

Happy October, Ya'll!

Loved the decorating ideas, even though we don't celebrate Halloween. You are very creative.
