Halloween At Our House

I transitioned my Fall decor over to Halloween last weekend. I am gradually starting to add more Halloween stuff to my stash. I used to not have any at all because I thought it was a hard/weird holiday to decorate for. But now that I have kids I think it's fun to decorate and get them into the spirit. I just decorate my hutch and put some stuff outside. You'll also see a peak at my first ever burlap wreath that I made (and probably my last LOL). It was not easy to make and now I know why those things are so expensive to buy. I love how it turned out though!

 I painted a canvas in a black and white chevron pattern and then glued this felt jack-o-lantern place mat to it (from the $Tree).

 I printed out this free Halloween garland from a blog. I can find the link if anyone wants it.

 Some of my other decorations: Ghost from Hobby Lobby/ sparkly pumpkins from Dollar Store/ another free printable in a spray-painted frame. I made the black lace covered tea lights last year.

Outside I just added my wooden crate and a mum and pumpkin with our Boo flag.

I love keeping it simple and but fun for Halloween. Now lets just cross our fingers that the mum survives till the end of the month. LOL
