Halloween is this weekend and my house is all spookified so
today I'm sharing my
Halloween Home Tour!
It all starts right here at my front door.
I hung some pumpkin lights, grabbed some pumpkins and mums
and hung a wreath (more about that later)
I've been wanting a retro looking light up pumpkin for a long time.
I finally found one (for a killer price $12)!
Back to the wreath.
I made this one last year.
It's a black evergreen wreath, with a black and orange feather boa
wrapped around it. I love it!!
But I couldn't figure out how to hang it on my door.
I don't want to put a nail in my door since it's new.
This door gets full afternoon sun exposure, so with the black paint,
my usual trick of using a command hook wasn't working.
The door gets too hot and the adhesive doesn't stick.
So I put the hook upside down on the inside of the door.
I hung the wreath from orange tulle, which is long enough to go all
the way up and over the door.
Then I made a loop on the orange tulle and hung it on the hook.
If I was picky (and not so lazy) I would have fixed the end of the tulle so it looked a little nicer.
Luckily, I'm not picky and can barely tell the end is hanging off.
(Except when you look close in a picture.)
This little vignette is in my living room.
I used all of the things I had on hand.
I did buy some pumpkins and some leaves.
One of my favorite things to decorate with is past Halloween photos.
I love my kids!! I clipped them to one of my antique sifters.
I added a few touches to my dining room.
I would love to have a big, over the top centerpiece on our dining room table.
But, this is our everyday table decor.
I used an old shutter, a plate of candles and a cute white pumpkin- along with
our napkins and salt and pepper.
I put some pumpkins in my chicken feeder. Love it!
I added some pumpkins to our photo shelves and pulled out
our perpetual calendar.
The dining room is where our Halloween mantel is too.
I added a few little pumpkins to our kitchen shelves.
And a little pumpkin and my vintage Halloween candle holders to the ledge above my kitchen sink.
And that's the Tour of my home for Halloween!
