Two years ago, realizing my Halloween decor inventory was zero, I went all out, decorating the whole house. Last year Halloween snuck up on me and I did not get out a single thing! Not this year, I resolved to get out those Halloween decorations early, which means I would finish before Halloween arrived on the calendar. Here are a few of the fun things I have been working on.
This year I have a sideboard/buffet to set up on!
I glittered some skeletons and hung them in the spooky tree. Black peacock feathers are a nice touch.

Okay so I got a little crazy with the glitter, but what better way to dress up some cheap dollar store bugs?

Glow in the dark glitter is SO cool! I think I will make a new project with the boys this year to use some more of it! Perhaps a skeleton?

Just some black construction paper here, eek!

Now to get working on those Halloween costumes for the boys...Dracula and the reaper are waiting for their wardrobe.
