I don't really do Halloween decor. I've just never really been into spooky stuff. I don't like scary movies. I like the treats not the tricks. I could in all honestly completely skip over the entire holiday and be completely fine. My kids on the other hand are in full on countdown mode. They love getting dressed up to go trick or treating! They don't like the spooky stuff either, but they like the cute stuff - you know like those witches that fly into trees. My kids love those! This is the first time I've ever decorated my mantel for Halloween - like ever. I'm blaming it on the candlesticks that literally jumped into my cart at Target. Dang clearance stickers.
Look what they made me do.
You remember the clock that jumped off the wall in my dining room? Well, here it is for now. White Beauty put on a boa; she's getting all festive. I found a paper mask at CVS for a $1 and sprayed it gold. The owl art I bought months ago at Goodwill for $3. I think it might go in the kids bathroom - someday.
And then there are those scrabble tile coasters again. The ones I bought at a local coffee shop last year. I love them! I've used them here and here. I used drapery clips to hang them from a piece of twine I taped to the mantel.
So there you have it - the story of how a Target clearance sticker roped me into decorating for Halloween.
My kids love it!
Do you decorate for Halloween? Or do you skip it like I usually do? I think I might do this again next year. It feels kind of like Harry Potter meets Bippity Boppity Boo meets Ding Dong the Witch is Dead meets Phantom of the Opera......and I can totally handle that kind of Halloween decor.
