Halloween Decor

Have I mentioned before that I luh-uh-uh-ve Halloween? I love it. It's my most favorite Holiday ever! My favorite movie is Hocus Pocus. My favorite season is Autumn. When I was a little girl my grandparents always took me for the first weekend of October to this camp site that would host a huge Halloween weekend (weeks before hand so more people could join) Fridays would be a big dinner, Saturdays were trick or treating & hay rides and Sundays were the biggest/best pumpkin votes. I loved it. I looked forward to it every October. We even took LB1 last year, this year we aren't able to make it and it breaks my heart. :( I still can picture the princess costume I wore one year. Remember those creepy plastic masks with the eye cutouts. Haha, I looked pretty scary, but at the time I probably felt like the coolest kid in the trailer park camp ground. :)


Okay enough reminiscing. I love Halloween, you get that. This year while Mr. P was away I was able to decorate more. Basically when you let the dog off the leash they run.


I ran.

Love my spooky pictures? So easy to do, I googled vintage Halloween and so many cool photos came up! I printed them out on plain old white paper and slipped them in the frames. I love the black, whites, creams and the pop of the orange. Like the girls' silhouettes? Let me show you how to make them.
Grab these things.
Halloween scrapbook paper, I used Martha Stewart. 10.00 for the book at Meijer. Some scissors and tape.



Cut into a witches hat shape and two tiny little horns. I stuck it straight to the glass. A little 3D love goin' on.

It's that easy! Now quickly, go turn your pictures into spooky art!







Happy fall ya'll
