Halloween Decorating Ideas
This is our foyer--the table is always here and makes a great spot for seasonal displays. I switched it over to Halloween by adding some of our Halloween books, a pumpkin Madeline made in school and a few crafty things.
The "tree" is some twisty branches from the yard, spray painted matte black and "planted" in a crock filled with acorns from our Oak tree out back.. My original plan was to hang some pumpkins on the branches, but I kind of like how stark it looks plain.It took about 20 minutes to pick out branches, spray paint them and fill the container with acorns.
The mice and spiders are cut from felt, and can be reused--the templates can be found here.
The wreath is made from Halloween cupcake wrappers, and took under an hour. I am terribly lazy when it comes to wreath-making, so this was a good, fast way to make one. I like the colors, and may eventually add a bow. Directions up later today for making your own cupcake wreath for any holiday or season.
