Spooky (and Not So Spooky) Halloween Decor
This is Halloween, this is Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween!
I always preach about getting your decorations after the holiday when they are on sale, but I actually forgot to do that last year as we had just moved cross country recently and it just totally slipped my mind!
So this year I did purchase a few things to decorate a bit since we didn’t last year.
Giant Spider Web
For this one I actually didn’t know where I would put it until I was standing with it outside. I purchased this web, that’s supposed to be glow in the dark but really isn’t much, and a big fuzzy spider at Walmart. The spider web was about $6 and the spider I think was $3. But now that you know that the spider web isn’t really all that glowy, you could get the cheaper non-glow in the dark for like $2. I love how it turned out and best of all, it was very effortless! It looks freakishly real and I wish I had done this last year!
This mummy DIY I have seen on Pinterest for years and I finally decided to try it out. It was easy but time-consuming. Mostly because I only purchased one streamer roll from Walmart for $1 and was determined to make it work for the entire door.
I cut the streamer into shorter strips and taped them to the back of the door. Wrapping it around the door is probably faster, but alas, I got it done! I also added some giant googly eyes that we had from a couple years back (I’ve seen them at Target recently for $2!) and cut a smiley mouth out of cardstock and printing paper.
Shelf Knick Knacks
I went to the dollar store in hopes of getting inspired to make something cool to decorate indoors, but unfortunately, that trip turned out unfruitful and only walked out with a light up pumpkin. It looks cute so I guess that’s all that matters. Haha
After the dollar store trip fail, I ventured to Michaels and believe it or not, it was a waste of time as well. Well, I guess not totally because I walked out with a pair of cool skull glass jars with lid and straws that were on sale, so there’s a win! And I love that I’ll be able to use them year round because it’s a pretty cool cup!
I want to make another trip to the stores and see if I can come up with something, or maybe I’ll just wait until stuff goes on sale. We’ll see!
