FaBOOlous Halloween Decorating Ideas

OH MY…….!!!!!
Yard Harm 16

October has arrived and it’s time to dig out your SPOOKY décor and frighten up the house a bit…!! So I decided to start this scary season off by sharing a few decorating ideas with you…..BEFORE I head out into the yard to start placing my decorations out for this year, take a look at what we did last year to grab a few ideas for you to use.
This is one of my favorite decorating ideas…….Charming GHOSTS holding hands and dancing around the yard waiting for a fun filled Spooky Night….!!! We bought these from Grandin Road, however I’m sure you can make your own.

Hanging from the upstairs window is this “Shackled Ghost” spotlighted at night to scare off any “Uninvited Guest”….!!!

Below is a cute “CAKE STAND” turned upside down and filled with pumpkins, pine cones, acorns and other natural elements and topped with a fun Witches Hat…!! A great idea to use something that you already have. Just flip it over……Perch a beautiful candle on top…..OR…..a bowl to hold candies and treats….!!!

Place ribbon adorned dishes around your home filled with candy to much on while passing by. Love the Witch Legs tucked under this treat bowl.

Using another CAKE STAND……Make a row of Black OR White Roses using tape then sit your favorite pumpkin on top for a CHARMING CENTERPIECE……

Just the right touch for my kitchen counter top….!!! 100_0466Here’s my mantel idea that is fairly simple using white pumpkins, a Halloween garland with black leaves and corn candy with a vintage style
BOO BANNER….!!!

Be sure to create a nice “Picture Taking” area out side for posing in those fun costumes. This makes a great background to capture your groups of Trick or Treaters and family. Stack a few straw bales for height and top it off with pumpkins, tombstones or anything to add interest to the background.  Then place a bench in front or extra bales of straw for guest to SIT and POSE…..BE sure to get your family pictures first before the night begins….!!!100_0647

I LOVE areas like this filled with skeletons and bones. This is perfect at the top of your drive, to welcome guest when they stop by.
