More Halloween Decorations

Happy Monday Everyone!

It's two weeks until Halloween and I'm so excited because for the very first time in years I am not stressing over our costumes. I love to sew our costumes myself or at least put them together, however, I always wait until the last minute and end up stressing and rushing to finish them. Not this year, they've been done for weeks now, yay! Sorry I can't reveal what we'll be dressing up as this's a surprise. Everyone is just going to have to wait :-P Anyways, my point is that since our costumes are all done I've had a little extra time to add some more Halloween decorations to our petite cottage. Do you wanna see?

I made this topiary from some of the pumpkins we picked at the pumpkin patch.

I used my Cricut to make the vinyl letters. After Halloween I can just peel them off and keep my topiary until Thanksgiving...If the pumpkins will last that long ;-)

Dollar Tree finds...I added the Witches Brew tag to make it look like a specimen jar...Not sure if I accomplished my goal...But I think it was a pretty good try :-)

Now lets see what I did in my dining room.

Some more Dollar Tree finds...I used the same vinyl cut-outs on these glasses.

Found these cute little scrap booking knick knacks last year at a thrift store...Just added some magnets to the back...They worked really well on my chalkboard mini tray.

Found this plastic plate at Target.

Well, I think I'll give myself a hand (maybe even the whole arm...hee, hee, hee) for finishing our costumes way in advance...Now off to work on some more fun holloweeny stuff.

Thank you for stopping by today.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and that you'll be back again real soon.
Have a fantabulous new week.

Hugs and Kisses,

Hey Ana, great decorations. Love those pumpkins. I went to the grocery store today to see if I could find anything close to Halloweeny or Fall like and came up with basically nada, nothing. Ugh! That plastic plate from Target is so fun mixed in with your other sweet plates. Your wallcolors are great. Bravo for being ahead of the game. I can barely plan for the next day. :/ Have a great week. Tammy

All of your decorations look wonderful! The specimen jar cracks me up, it's too funny. I also love your topiary.
You are lucky to have your costumes all done. My son's costume is planned, but I haven't gotten everything for it just yet. My daughter wasn't planning to dress up this year, but now she's been invited to a party & wants to dress up. So begins the scramble...

I love the topiary and the scull plate hanging with the pretty white plates is classic!
