It’s Fall Y’all!

Talk to me Tuesday over on Tip Junkie this week is featuring fall and Halloween home decor ideas. I love getting a peek into other women’s homes! Here’s mine and I hope you are inspired with a new idea for your home.

Seriously, I do not know where 2008 has gone, time is passing so quickly! Last week I got out all the Halloween decorations and decked out the house. It’s so nice to have a change of scenery and get festive for my favorite holiday.

A couple friends and I made the Pottery Barn Halloween advent calendar last year. I made mine skinnier to better fit my walls. And yes, I’ve hooked you up with a tutorial on Executive Homemaker. {{wink}}

This poor broomstick witch has seen better days but I just love her. I made her at a Super Saturday when I was first married.

The same year I made the broomstick witch, I also made this ghost and spider wreath. It’s a mess and missing all the black light bulbs. But I thought the idea was so cool and had to share it with you.

The coke cans were crushed and spray painted white and made into ghosts. Then they used black pipe cleaners for the spider legs, spray painted light bulbs black, added eyes and a red rhinestone on the back to make spiders. Add a big festive bow and voila.

I still haven’t gotten my camera fixed. 🙁

One year the boys and I beaded these pumpkins. We have made it a tradition to hang them from our bar. It must have been a good memory because they talk about that day every time we hang them up.

Thanks to Dylan’s birthday party decorations, we’ve been hooked up with all kinds of creepy crawling things. I finally found a place for my bat!


Mique made me that Boo banner last year. Thanks Mique!

When the kids came home, we made a chocolate cookie haunted house. We had a friend over and she joined in the fun.

I let them do the entire thing. They read the directions, put it together, and decorated it themselves. They are way too big for mom’s help. {{get with it mom}}


Drake cried the whole time wanting to eat the candy.

They were so proud of themselves when they were done.

As soon as the picture was taken, it was consumed!

  1. Cute decorations! Now I need to go get mine out and put them up!

    What a nice mom letting them decorate the house. I know I’d want to do the thing by myself! But they did a really good job! I bet they were on a sugar high for hours!

  2. Cute cute decorations! I love the way you decorated your front door! I am sure the kiddos that come over love it! I am having so much fun looking at everyone’s decorations. 🙂

  3. Oh, your home is lovely (and large!) and your decor even lovelier. It’s so fun to decorate with children… they enjoy it so much!
