the halloween decor is up!

Friday, September 30, 2011

It may still be September, but I couldn't help myself and the Halloween stuff is up!!!

I LOVE me some Halloween :D

So, come on in!


Do you see those fun silhouette's scurrying around the baseboards and up the stairs?

I've always loved those Martha cutouts and this year I finally grabbed some.

Izzy is very fond of the "mouse house" :)


I always like to use what I've got when it comes to decorating so I used lots of old books, old silver pieces, and tore out some book pages for the back of the owl print.

I found both prints on The Graphics Fairy blog.  They're free and fan-stinking-tabulous!


The crow silhouette pillow was made out of painter's drop cloth and painted on using the same technique I used here.


The skull was originally orange glitter, purchased from Target for $2.50.

I tore up more book pages and used Mod Podge to recover the skull.



Kinda ended up with a crow theme this year by accident.


Oh, and I LOVE, love, love using spanish moss when decorating for Halloween.

You can pick up a big bag at a craft store like Hobby Lobby for around $5 and use it on everything.

I think it gives anything a spooky look.




I picked up some branches from the back yard and wrapped some moss around them so my little birds could have somewhere to hang out.

Found the smaller birds at the dollar store for, you guessed it, $1 a piece!


I think the tree is my favorite part of the decorations this year.



Some unpolished silver and moss even help this glittery pumpkin look spooky.

Ok, maybe not spooky, it is a glittered pumpkin after all ;)



Now if only it would get out of the 90's, it would really start to feel like fall around here.

I'm going to be linking up my Halloween stuff over at Midwestern Sewing Girl.

MidwesternSewingGirl

She's having a major Halloween link party and awesome giveaway starting this Sunday so get your Halloween on and link up!!!

I'll also be linking up to these fab parties!

  43. Oh I LOVE the mouse silhouettes and will definitely make them, too!!! More and more people are decorating for Halloween here in Germany, and the kids even go trick-or-treating. I love that! Only problem is that we don't have any chance to lay hands on the Martha Stewart silhouettes ... I have to find another way to make these. Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas and your great halloween home decorations!!!
