Ya’ll, what can I say? I love Halloween!! Pulling out my decorations instantly makes me giddy…like a kid again! Halloween is is the one holiday where just about anything goes. Dear friends, I am thrilled to share my Halloween decor with you today!
Those of you that have followed me for a while are well aware of my affinity for Halloween, but if you’re new around here, I think you just might enjoy it also. We don’t do blood and gore around here, just some classic skeleton party fun!
I didn’t change things up too much this year.
These guys are just to the left of the photo above:
Not much going on here…just a skeleton free-for-all.
And to the left of these skeletons who are up to no good sits the gargoyle:
He was new last year and breathes fog on Halloween night! Spooky!
And how about this handsome friendly family?
It was on the verge of raining the day I took these, but I liked the dreary effect for Halloween, so I had to snap them quick!
The fencing around the cemetery was a new addition last year. I found it in the garden section at Home Depot:
There’s more to see the closer you get, and actually a few DIY projects too!
The BEWARE sign is from way back in 2013…I shared that HERE.
I love all the spooky-faced pumpkins!
This Dead and Breakfast Inn sign was also a DIY project from back in 2015 that I was inspired to make by Better Homes and Gardens:
I used a mailbox post from Home Depot to make mine!
Up on the porch is this gal:
…who looks like she’s playing the piano from the street, I’ve been told:
I love this collection of headless photos…
Pottery Barn once offered the download of a set of them on their site, but that was long ago and they no longer offer it. You can find a few of these images if you google headless portraits and select images.. Don’t worry, they are all clearly photoshopped!
A new addition this year is this rocking child:
The the bottom of the rocker broke off and I thought this was a fun way to reuse it.
This two headed skeleton is another new addition this year:
Let’s go inside, shall we?
Welcome to our Halloween dining room!
Meet our party host!
How do you like her fancy dress? $6 at the thrift store! She’s a smart shopper!
It’s hard to see but we keep a black curtain up at the entrance to our kitchen so you can’t see beyond the spooky dining room at night. There is another door just to the right of that dresser and to the left of this staircase that is covered also:
Those are battery-operated tea lights that are on a timer in the jars and they light up at night. The staircase is what you see when you open the front door, and the dining room is to the left. We actually completely redid the stairs last year, replacing all the treads and risers and adding the decorative detail to the sides. It took us so long to complete it that I didn’t bother to share it lol.
This is a fancy affair!
You may remember this $2 flatware box that got a Halloween overhaul last year:
And here is how this party lights up at night:
All the candles are battery operated and operate on a timer also.
The dining room is the only room that we decorate inside and the reason for that is…you can see it clearly from the outside:
We have one of those creepy bulbs that makes it look like there’s a short in the electrical somewhere!
Here’s a couple of quick night time pics…
And that is our Halloween decor this year!
I usually add webbing, lights in jars, and lots of extras on Halloween night, plus we play spooky music! That really adds to the effect.
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
Here are 10 of my simple Halloween projects from over the years that you might enjoy also!
You can see them all HERE!
I know Halloween may look a little different this year, but I hope you have a safe and happy one, and I hope you get to see some littles all dressed up…that’s the best part!
I’ll be back on Tuesday with the first project from my Biggest Thrifty Haul of them Haul, this table:
See ya’ll then!
