I had so much fun decorating for Halloween this year. I finally have my built ins, and this being the first Halloween in the new house, I had to make it special.
I made a countdown for Piglet, with a little ghost that he could move every day.
I went with a Harry Potter theme this year, and I plan on doing it next year too. I had a potions display, and made some Harry Potter themed book covers. I even made us wands from sticks we found on a walk. He’s super into Harry Potter now, which is a dream come true for me. I’m hoping next year we can dress up as a family of witches and wizards!
We hung up the pirate ship, and had the bats dangling from the ceiling again. Piglet loved watching them. I loved all of his cute artwork from school this year.
Do you remember last year when Match got the awesome idea to hang cut out leaves for Thanksgiving? Then we followed that with snowflakes for Christmas? Well this year he suggested bats for Halloween. I love how the simplest of decorations can make the biggest impact.
On a walk recently, a neighbor of ours was cleaning out his garage and asked if we’d like an old kite he had. Not only is it an awesome kite, but it doubles as a great Halloween decoration! Piglet loves to point at it when we walk downstairs.
I got a little crafty and painted a spooky Halloween scene to hang up on the wall.
I also had Match and Piglet get in on the act, and we put up our ghostly footprints. Somehow the way Match put his foot down, it looks like his foot’s not that much bigger than mine. I assure you that I have very dainty little feet! If you look closely, I also added some Harry Potter potion labels, and a couple of book labels. Next year I’d like to go Harry Potter crazy!
The silhouettes are back up in the windows this year, and the signs are out front. I added a couple of gourds that Piglet loves to pick up and try to carry around on our walks.
I love decorating for the different holidays, don’t you?
