Fall and Halloween Decorating

Halloween is just around the corner! It is my favorite for decorating. So I need to get out all my Halloween Decorating boxes and get myself BUSY! I have realized that I have a decorating obsession. I need to start to simplify now that I have downsized. I simply don’t have that many surfaces to display my cute Halloween JUNK anymore! But it is one of the things I most enjoy too.

And I really just love Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday of all. Maybe it’s because as a kid I was a candy-holic. Maybe I love dressing up. Maybe I love dressing up AND getting candy. That must be it.  Here’s my Skeleton Bundt cake. He’s so scary! but he tasted sooooo good! 

So for now I’ll pick and choose some of my favorites. It will probably take me a week to finish decorating. But it will be lots of fun for me too. And my classroom kids will love it. 

At Yeringtonflowers they did a cute Fall table decoration grouping.  Just simple mason jars
filled with acorns and candy corn! Easy Peasy! 

Candy corn and apples make a great base for decorating for fall. Just fill a mason jar with tissue paper. Then on the space between the tissue paper and the glass put a layer of candy corn. Or put a smaller jar inside and do same thing.

Elle Interiors  had the idea to use green apples in a glass trifle bowl to decorate.
 I love the  “green apple” colored candle too! Front-porch-ideas-and-more had this cute idea!

Use gold metallic spray paint on real pumpkins for a dash of 
sparkle. I think I’ll try that for my fireplace area this year. 
How cool is THAT look? it’s cool alright….
It’s a blog party did a simple but beautiful fall mantle that looks easy to copy…
I love the leaves, pods and
acorns strung along in an easy twine garland too.

What is it about Fall colors that are just so appealing?

Pure Style Home did another fall fruits in glass idea that I loved.
I’m going to be looking for some of these glass domes.
I think they are cool and you could use them for every season.

Nest Handmade has an easy Christmas Ball Wreath tutorial on how to make this
beautiful and welcoming addition to anybody’s front porch!
And Hobby Lobby has all the Christmas balls stacked in the aisles already!ve this o

Well, and who could resist just a plain old pile of pumpkins and some straw hay bales or an old cornstalk.
And if that’s not enough, how about a cute grandkid in the mix? Yeah….she makes my day.
 Love her. Happy decorating. Gotta love a little
“punpkin” like this cute one…..:D
