It's A Halloween Party

Ok -I have never decorated just for Halloween. I typically just get out the "fall" stuff and enjoy through October and November. But, when did the Halloween decorations get so darn cute!? I just could not resist - I decided its because the decorating got whimsical. Kimba at Soft Place to Land is the inspiration to many of my projects in progress and my new love for spray paint.

Today I am joining the Halloween party and showing a couple of decorations I added this weekend.

This is a before shot of what I am working with....


Stole this idea from a few blogs. They are more sophisticated than me and actually rub on the letters on the pumpkins (fake) and it looks great. I used large letter stickers and just attached to the pumpkins.


Here is boo on the mantle by the spooky tree. I loved this tree. I found it at a thrift store super cheap. You can't see from the picture, but it has a cute face and a place to add a candle.


This was a stretch, but I still like it. I spray painted an old wreath that was not being used anywhere and added a little purple "happy halloween" ribbon. Not sure how it fits with my "peace to all who enter here" door knocker. :)


Just another picture to show you how much southern living I have...



Now go look at all the other entries in the party at Soft Place to Land...her barn star on her door is really adorable, especially on her black door, brick house.......all fun to look at.
