Easy and Fun Halloween Decor

How sweet is this idea from GHK. For this project, they suggested using the bathroom size plastic cups. You simply cover each cup with the decorative paper of your choice and then, make a small slit in the top of each cup to insert your strand of lights. How simple is that and I absolutely love this project. I can't wait to post the one I am making!

This is another fun idea from Ballard Designs. You can order a set of these and use them year after year. However, I thought it would be fun to make a slip cover out of decorative paper and place them over your existing lamp shades. How easy would that be!!

This is another adorable idea from GHK. A witch for your front door. You could cut this out of of vinyl, wood, or any material you choose to use. I love the three dimensional appearance of this project and hope to be making this once I gather my supplies! To download template

Decorating Projects for HALLOWEEN . . . . .

I have sooooo much fun decorating for Halloween. I think it's like chippy paint, if you love it you get it and if you don't well - you don't. But, if perhaps you are one of us Halloween obssessed and you will like these fun projects that I have been working on . . . .

A Before and After & A Fun Little Halloween Craft Project

I purchased this little piece at a fundraiser sale and it was passed over for most of the day. I knew I just had to have it since, I could see it's potential! After a quick sanding and several coats of paint I think it will make a lovely bed side table.

The following pieces of clip art are from the gracious Graphic Fairy. I recently purchased these two empty bottles with the intention to decoupage some Halloween graphic on the front of them.
These were perfect for my little project.

Now all they need are some black jelly beans!

Here is a banner that I made to hang in my kitchen. If you have some scrap booking paper and glitter you really need to make one of these sweet little banners. They are so much fun!

Take care!

Embellished Halloween Banner

I purchased this banner at Tuesday Morning back in the summer. I bought it with the intentions to see what I could do with it. It essentially came as clip board with the letters punched out. I used a little scrap booking paper, glitter, and ribbon to transformed it into a colorful and fun Halloween banner for my dinning room.
