Monday dawned and I was ready to decorate for Halloween. One little problem, though: I have no idea what happened to the box of Halloween decorations from last year. For me, that is huge. I'm usually pretty organized. I can't believe I would have purged all of it, so it had to be in the attic. But since I am deathly afraid of going into the attic, I had to make do!
I collected some branches from the neighborhood greenbelt,and added some that were spray painted black.
And a couple of hairy spiders...which make me jump every time I leave the house, because I'm such a ninny!
The big one is from Wally World, the smaller one from Walgreen's.
Wrapped some Halloween garland around a grapevine wreath and added a chipboard
hanging sign from Joann's (60% off!)
Something I noticed: pumpkins from the store are always dirty - clean em up with a bit of Orange Glo and they shine! Plus the front door area will smell orange-y wonderful...
I like that I was able to use some natural elements - I think I am leaning more
and more towards that in my home.
A little plain, but it will do for now. I have some lights to string up and I might add a few more branches for drama. After all they're free! Plus, eventually, hubby will find that box for me...
