A Halloweenie House

We are Halloween ready!

We actually started decorating out house for Halloween right after Labor Day. I put off posting this because I meant to add more stuff but as our vacation got closer I got too busy. There's always next year.

First Jonathan put up lights upside. We already had the nails that we had used last year for our Christmas lights. Jon just strung up these purple ones in a zigzag fashion.

We added some ghost lights above our kitchen window.

The "haunt" jars are on the ledge below. We want to add a pumpkin next to them but we've been waiting until it gets closer to Halloween. Last year our pumpkin did not survive for very long. Sorry I don't have a photo!

We have the little stop sign I crafted on the sidewalk in front our house.

And a black witch right next to our front door. My favorite part is that she looks like a shadow which makes her so much more frightening. You know, for a fake witch. 

I hung sparkly black wreath on the front door. It has lights and I use to turn them on but somehow the battery pack fell off.

On the inside of the door is a ghost and pumpkin wreath. I think its a bit too small for the space so maybe next year I'll add some deco mesh around it.

Inside we swapped out our table runner for a spiderweb one. I moved the candlesticks from the console table and used a cake stand to display a glittery pumpkin I got at Ross for $3.39! We added fake spiderwebs and spiders since the runner didn't make it spooky enough.

We also hung some fake spiders in the big window by our stairs. My brother helped me string those up with some curling ribbon.

In an ideal world I'd add some deco mesh ribbon and lights around the front door. I'd also decorate the mantle above the fireplace and our staircase. At least Poseidon is decorated!

p.s. Don't worry- he totally has a costume. This is just to get into the Halloween spirit.
