I wasn’t going to do it this year…really. I had no intention to decorate for Halloween. My kids are well past all the Halloween hoo-haa and my house was already set for the entire fall season. I was feeling good that I would get a full 3 months from my fall decor until I will decorate for Christmas. But, as is often the case, one thing led to another and …BAM…I have Halloween decorations up!
I was very content to bring out my Pet Menagerie Pictures and have them be the sole ‘Halloween decorations’. But, once I opened my Halloween box to retrieve them, some more of my other Halloween favs started catching my eyes and I just couldn’t resist.
Once I succumbed to my favorite witch, the one with the whimsical smile and eyes that I swear follow me around, I knew I would be decorating for Halloween…if just a little bit…this year.
I decided to confine the majority of my decorations to the dark green hutch I have in my kitchen since we spend so much time in there. I knew I’d get the biggest bang for my Halloween decorating buck. And since I knew I’d be voted BEST.MOM/WIFE.EVERRRRR…I decided to splurge on some candy. We rarely have candy lying around the house, so this mini Candy Bar would be a real treat for my boys.While I do have a sweet tooth, I can resist candy corn and Milky Ways all day long and never be tempted. But those Reese’s cups? Yeah, they are a different story.
I used my 1″ circle hole punch, some card stock and string to whip together this quick garland.
And on a day when my to-do list was growing with no end in sight, I felt compelled to fashion a little party hat for my one-eyed raven.
So, will you decorate for Halloween this year? Do you have your favorite Halloween decorations already out?
