I’m never really sure about Halloween.
Some years I skip it and act like we aren’t friends and move right on to leaves and pumpkins and hay bales.
When I get a fun idea or feel like a spider web is in my future….
….I break out a little orange and black and say boo.
Today I’m joining a few friends with 20 ways to decorate for Halloween.
Halloween Idea Number 1: Vinyl spider webs
I bought this entire kit from the craft store.
It came with vinyl spider webs and spiders in a variety of webby spidery designs.
I added them to the front door in about five vinyl minutes.
Halloween Idea Number 2: Pumpkins in urns
You might be able to blink twice in the amount of time it takes for this idea.
Take a black, worn out spooky looking urn.
Add a pumpkin.
It’s an easy pop of color for the front porch.
Halloween Idea Number 3: Spiders and webs
I bought an entire bag of spiders that look like they used to be on rings and a bag of spider webbing.
I scattered the spiders everywhere. They’re on the porch, on the pumpkins on the spooky black branches.
Then I took the web and wound it through the black branches.
The web and spiders made the vinyl web seem even more real.
Halloween Idea Number 4: Add a picture frame instead of a wreath
I wanted something for the door with a little graphic design.
I found this wreath at a yard sale, spray painted it white, added a chevron design to the back and hung a W in the middle.
I love the simplicity and how it adds a little cute to all those spiders and webs.
I’m sending you on to the next blog for some more Halloween ideas, but first, here’s one for the road.
In the blog archives I found this picture of the twins from a couple of years ago.
Life wouldn’t be the same without Betsy Ross and Mrs. Kennedy.
Here’s a to a little smile with your Halloween. 🙂
And now here’s the rest of the Halloween decorating ideas from some of my favorite bloggers.
