As we head into the last few days of August I’ve been busy planning my ‘Fall Decor’ …. I love decorating the house for autumn and halloween and plan my theme months before, if I don’t start planning little bits in advance it probably wouldn’t get done !
So this years plans are well underway ! I’ve been to a local farm to pick up supplies and I’ve been making decor to accessorize the house and garden ! Twin daddy thinks I’m crazy but I love doing it and I hope as the girls get older they will enjoy getting involved.
I can’t wait to pull it all together so stay tuned for that next week !
Before I share this years theme and design I thought I would give you a glimpse into last years halloween decor. The theme was a ‘ Dead & Breakfast ‘. I roped twin daddy into helping me make signs to dot around the house. I just used scrap bits of mdf and sample pots of paint to create some homemade decor !
I made the little arrow signs from plain wooden arrows and just painted them and add the street names. The witches legs were tights stuffed with cushion stuffing with witch shoe toppers – I thought it looked like the witch from OZ being squashed under a house ! I decorated the windows with witch pumpkins and spooky mice.
The hallway was decorated with autumn leaves, another set of witch legs and more spooky mice.
I filled the kitchen shelves with creepy jars of treats !
Of course the girls celebrated their 1st Halloween and they had little witch hats to wear ! We always finish off the evening drinking creepy eyeball hot chocolate and watching Hocus Pocus !
Im so excited to get working on this years decor !
