Last minute haloween decorations

image

Everyone runs behind some of the time, I seem to run behind most of the time! This was a super quick throwing up of decorations for the spookiest night of the year. It took me an hour from cutting up bats to stepping back and congratulating myself on a job well done!

Starting with the door, I made the wreath earlier in the season as a general autumn wreath by glue gunning fake leaves, bows, conkers and ribbon onto a preexisting wreath. To spook it up I added some plastic pumpkins and a plastic skull salvaged off a haloween hat my brother bought about 5 years ago! Simple.

The bats are just eyeballed and cut from black paper then attached to the door and shutters using rolled tape (I ran out of blue tack!)

The ghosts came out of my seasonal decoration box but we’re easy peasy to make following a beautiful mess instructions. My only alterations were using bundles of rags for the heads and using several layers of white fabric for the ‘bodies’ (I’m tempted to call them dresses) not just one which makes them more poofy.

Done, now to wait for the little monsters!

Front porch ghosts

Let’s get spooky coz it’s almost Halloween! I haven’t gone as bonkers as normal because there is just too much house to try and decorate so I thought I would focus on the front porch because that’s where the any little monsters will be coming to!

From afar, can you spot them?

I used the ghosts I made last year from scraps of white fabric and lace around balls of tightly scrunched newspaper. They were inspired by the ghosts made by the Beautiful Mess girlies but I used more layers of fabric so my ghosts have more tutu like skirts (I think they are ballerinas inside…)

I hung them from strings cast across our little front porch. They flow beautifully in the wind which is lucky considering the gales we have forecast for the next couple of days. Let’s hope theu survive!!!!
