Halloween Home Tour

Halloween decorating ideas #halloween #fall #halloweencrafts

October is here, so I had to get my decorating on so I can enjoy Halloween for the whole month. Some of my decorations I have made myself and others bought at some of my favorite stores.  One of my favorite things I did this year, is cover up one of my photos with black scrapbook paper and command strips and used this $1 Drink up Witches sign I found in the Target dollar section, for literally $2.00 I made the cutest sign.halloween cheap decorations

halloween decor Pretty sure I was a witch in my past life because I love anything, witches. I created my little witches corner. I found my Witch at Tuesday Morning for $24.99. They have all different Witches to choose from, but I suggest going in early September because by October they are gone. Learned my lesson from last year. halloween decor A few years back I made these DIY spell books Diy Post here. I found my little potion bottle in the Target dollar section. It completed my little witches corner. halloweenEvery year Target has these spooky talking phones, that my kids love. I covered Dollar Tree cobwebs over everything because my children can’t keep their hands off everything.halloweenI bought this little bag of bones while I was in New Orleans, however I saw the same bag at Stein Mart for $6.99

halloween decor I found these Day of the Dead decals at Jo Ann’s (2015) here is my diy post. halloween decor This year I am having a Day of the Dead Halloween Party, and my color theme is black and white, so when I came across this at Joann’s I had to have it.   halloween82015

I crafted this little sign together with a piece of scrapbook paper and these foam stickers I found at Hobby Lobby.

batsYou can find these sticker bats at Target and they are only $5.00. I bought this picture at Kirkland’s a few years back, and I have so many friends that love it that I made a copy-cat free printable, you can print it out and frame.Free Halloween Printable #halloween #halloweenprintables #halloweenquotes

fall porch ideas
My little fall porch set up I did this year. I went to wal-mart for the best prices for mums. Don’t buy your mums from the display, first check their nursery for better deals. When I checked their nursery they had over two full rows of 50% reduced mums, not because they were dying just because they were the older batch. Each Mum only cost $1.99. Another tip, of course buy your Halloween decor the day of Halloween or the very next day. Wait any longer and it will be picked over. I found this sign for less than $5 at kirklands last year after Halloween.  flowers

Christmas isn’t the only holiday you can decorate your house with lights. You can buy a box of orange or purple lights for less than $4.00. I added black tulle every foot on my string of lights. I added more this year under my roof of my porch sweeping back and forth, to make it a little more magical. Yes, I’m a little kid at heart.

Dollar Tree Crafts: Pumpkin Pie Freebie Printable

dollar tree pumpkin candle craft

Oh Dollar Tree how I love finding cute little gift ideas at your store! Dollar Tree is always a hit or miss for me, sometimes I go in and find nothing and then sometimes I find myself spending over $30 in one trip, who does that! Well one of the things I found were these adorable pumpkin pie candles that came in little mason jars.  The best part they smell amazing! I am creating a fall basket for my bestie because we both love fall so much, so Happy National Fall Day should be a gift giving holiday! So I created this cute free printable that says “You’re sweet as Pumpkin Pie” to cover up the Dollar Tree generic label – which the label easily pealed off. Download Here for your free setsweet as pumpkin pie

You can cut these out or punch out to turn into a tag also. I don’t know how I passed kindergarten because I cannot cut a perfect circle apparently. But they do have circle punchers. You're sweet as pumpkin pie printable gift tag
