Halloween Home Tour 2013

Halloween Home Tour 2013
October 30, 2013 Alison Faulkner

I thought it would be fun, and like, super appropriate this Halloween, to give you a little tour of my decorations! Nothing too crazy or too fancy, I hope to keep adding to them each year, but you might find an idea here or there! Happy Halloween!

I got those skeleton body parts at some party store, and they were the BEST purchase. I sprikled them on lots of tables throughout the season, put them on top of cupcakes, and used them to create a candle holder. They were like $3, so it just goes to show you don’t have to drop a bunch of money to be festive!

THat’s my batty table runner I made using a foam stamp and fabric paint. Next year I’ll share the tutorial.

These spiders freaked out everyone who came over. Hahaha. The spiders and the skeleton are both from Martha Stewart Crafts.

I have a lil video about those spider candles.

I move two of those fuzzy spiders all over the house throughout the season. Last Halloween Ginger wouldn’t go NEAR them, but by last week she had adopted one into her family of “friends” (the stuffed animals she carries EVERYWHERE) and I’ve had to keep rescuing the spider from her clutches.

I made these pumpkins our first Halloween in our house. Gigi was like 1 month old and I felt this overwhelming need to decorate. I had never cared much before that.

And then Gigi made this in preschool. PRESCHOOL! It’s the cutest thing to happen in the history of ever.

My Halloween Nesting dolls found a place to live on top of the shoe rack/cart by our front door.

I made some Halloween fascinators a few years back, so they tend to find homes on the random animals I have scattered around the house.

My neighbors gave me some headstones they had made, I want to repaint them and rewrite the epitaphs, but I just didn’t get to it this year.

I was SO mad that we grew so many pumpkins this year! HAHA. I know, I’m nuts, but I LOVE going to the pumpkin patch and picking all the different varieties of pumpkins, but Eric threw some old pumpkins in the garden at the end of Fall last year, to like fertilize it, and this year pumpkins OVERRAN our garden like mad.

I also made this snake wreath, an idea I saw in Martha Stewart. I want to add a little sign that says, “Sssssstay out!” Next year. I know, I know, I can’t help it.

Well that pretty much ends our tour! Believe it or not there are other things I didn’t get pictures of. hahaha. But Ginger, for one, is real glad you came!
