Decorating for Halloween is a highlight of the season – it means that fall is officially here and I can get geared up for my favorite season. I don’t do anything super scary or gruesome because… well, I’m a wimp and can’t take it. ha! (Truth is I’ve never even been in a haunted house because I’m certain it would give me a heart attack.) The past few years I’ve used books and birds to decorate, and this year I did the same – with a twist. To keep the color palette more neutral, I only used white pumpkins, and I turned the books around so the pages faced forward. The bird cage I use year-round but in another location and the “mirror” is one that I made look old in this DIY. A few cobwebs and plastic spiders complete the look.
If I have a Halloween party, I hang the “Come In My Little Pretties” sign on the front door. And plug in the ampersand metal light.
I use a garden gate panel in my hallway to create a witch hat rack. Several years ago, in a magazine (I can’t even remember which one), I had seen a “witch hat check” that featured tags on the hats – so I printed up some of my own.
