Halloween Starts Here!

It's no secret that any decorator loves the holidays! Just another excuse to decorate in a new way. At the moment, Fall is my favorite time of the year. Partly because of crisp cool air, sweaters, hot cider and colorful falling leaves. But lets be honest, the real reason is obviously Halloween!!

                            Simple ways to get the creepy, but not icky, look of Halloween are
                                as simple as 1,2,3:
                                                                  1- Mesh Webs      Put them on EVERYTHING!
 They can be found everywhere, but thanks to the greatest mother-in-law in the world, I have several from Dollar Tree. So check the dollar stores first, or you will be spending between $3-$6 for one.
                                                          
                                                 
                                                         2- Gourds and Pumpkins        
                                                         
                                                         and 3- Corn Stalks
 
       Finding unique containers to place your stalks in, like this old milk can, will add loads of
        character!
                  Anything you add to these simple items are just added candy to the eye!
                     If all else fails start spray painting items black!! Happy Haunting!!! ~Meg
