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.

Halloween Sugar Skull Crafts- Dollar Tree hacks

Cheap Halloween crafts dollar tree hacks #halloween #sugarskulls #dayofthedead #halloweendecorI know, I know- It’s August and I am posting Halloween, but If you’re a crafter you know every store is full of Halloween crafts and décor already. I have come across some things that I knew I could make cheaper and have found some things that are a great deal. SO I needed to share. I was at Jo-Ann Fabrics the other day admiring all their Halloween décor and came across these sugar skull candles. They were selling them for $6.99 sugar skull Very cute, but I remember coming across these candles at Dollar Tree.

dollar tree candle4Well in the next aisle at Jo-Ann’s I found these Sugar skull embellishment’s.

sugar skull decalFor two they were $4.99 with 25% off, making it $3.75. I turned my craft into two projects. I came across these goodies as well and couldn’t believe the price. They were not on sale but even if they were 50% off the price is still crazy. Halloween craftsI drink wine so I have wine bottles already able to use, but even if you don’t drink wine find a friend that does. You can also ask restaurants that serve wine if you can recycle their bottles for them. wine bottlesBuy a can of spray paint. I always buy mine at Wal-Mart for less than $4.00.  I wanted to spray my bottle with a gloss black instead of chalkboard.  The best tip for spray painting is to give yourself enough space to avoid paint runs. sugar skull crafts2

Once dried I added one of my sugar skulls.

Witches Kitchen Halloween Party Shoot

halloween party ideas My little witches had so much fun shooting this fun Halloween witch’s kitchen shoot. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so at this house we go ALL out. Luckily I have two little girls that love Halloween as much as I do. So they were definitely up for dressing up as witches for some cute Halloween photos. If you’re throwing a Halloween party don’t forget the dry ice, all the kids love it!

Halloween Party witches shoot   halloween party witches shootwitches partyhalloween party witches shoot I bought my flowers at Dollar Tree and the vase is made from a Starbucks glass; spray painted with mirror glass spray, let dry then spray painted chalk board paint and I used sandpaper while the paint was wet to give a dirty look.

Making their potions! I collected jars and used these Free potion labels. I added water and a piece of dry ice to each jar, then I gave each little witch a test tube full of food coloring and water to pour into their dry ice jars, so they could watch what happened next. If you have never played with dry ice before with your kids, you need to. The water bubbles up and smokes and the kids will love it. “Of course don’t let them touch it!”

Halloween characters made with streamers

Halloween crafts with streamers diyI had to share my easy and cheap Halloween craft I did the other night with my children. We all have seen the adorable Halloween crafts made from wood all over Pinterest. Well the other night I was cleaning out my cabinets and I thought these boxes would work perfect for my characters. Literally all you do is wrap your boxes with streamers, decorate up and your done in minutes. Your children will have a blast making these.

streamer mummy halloween craft diyFor my little mummy girl:  I first taped my box closed. Next, I wrapped in toilet paper since you can see through the white streamers. Then I wrapped my white streamers over and over the box using double sided tape. For the eyes you can use goggly eyes, I came across this package at Dollar Tree that had stickers for Halloween characters. We had plenty of stickers left over they could still decorate their paper character. On the side of the box I glued this cute little spider.

Dollar treeThese  stickers worked great I did add a little hot glue so they would stick better to my streamers.
