Decorating for Halloween

Our mantel has been transformed from Fall to Halloween..
I hung up the banner (SPOOKY) I made with my cricut..I added lots of purple and black tulle , I left the leaves, berries and burlap from Fall.

Theres a couple of glittery pumpkins , a couple Halloween dolls, the big wooden ghost and the wood trick or treat sign.

I grouped these Hallmark ghosts ( from many years ago) together on this table.. I have some Halloween frames with photos of my kids in Halloween costumes from their younger years. The ghost in the orange dress is on a cake plate with legs. The ghost is a doll that I made and folded her legs under her dress so it looks like the cake plate legs are her legs.
The fall subway art I made last week got moved to this table along with some of the sweater pumpkins and some cute little sparkly jack o lanterns. The framed piece is cross stitched , Prairie schooler's When witches go riding .. I still love it !






In the hallway I added some small painted Halloween pieces to the stair garland.


Put some witches out on the hall table

and added a witch to the center of the coffee filter wreath


In the kitchen I have this grouping on the counter..I was a big collector of Boyds bears.. I don'thave very many left , but I have a few I still really like.


The wire basket has a pumpkin plate and a couple little withches along with some gourds.


another vignette on the counter with the vintage scale some pumpkins , Haunted house cookie jar and a cute Halloween towel.





I decided the towel needed pompoms so I sewed some on .. Looks so much cuter !

The sweater pumpkins..in a wire basket sit in the middle of the counter. 

 
This little pumpkin will be 6 months old in 3 days..He is such a cutie !
Thanks for stopping by and all your nice comments !

What great decorating projects in every room, Priscilla--I loved spotting the finished PS piece. I really should stitch that one next year--it is one of my favorites...

I'm sure the neighborhood kids just love coming to your house for trick-or-treat :)

How adorable! I had stopped decorating for Halloween / Fall for a few years but got back into it last year. I think getting back into the crafting and decorating helped me to cope with the loss of my father earlier in the year.

I just love that banner. All the purple tule is perfect but I really love that little pumpkin in the last photo. I have pics of all my kids in pumpkin patches as babies too.

Priscilla,
Everything looks so festive. Love your mantel. The towel coming out of the bowl is very cute with the added pom poms. I pulled out my green scale today to use in my Halloween decor. Just in the process of changing from Fall to Halloween. The little punkin by the pumpkins is a doll! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,
Jann
