My Halloween House - Part 1

I have been having such a blast this month preparing for Halloween.  Some of you (perhaps two of my three readers) may recall my Homemade Halloween Hope List over here.  I thought I'd give you a little update on how I've been doing...

Very simple painted white letters.

A spider pillow cover I made with some left over Halloween fabric.

Merrick acting terrified for the camera.

My homemade decals...which didn't turn out so well.

A yummy non-decor project: Mummy Pretzel sticks!  Find the recipe here.  I changed the chocolate to white almond bark and the eyes to red hots.

Martha Stewart Hang-Ups.  Find the how-to here.  I was going to make several of these, but they take too stinkin' long!

 A pic of the hang-up as my Halloween "wreath."

My disappointing banner!  I made it too long for the hearth!  An update on this is forthcoming as I can not stand leave it as is!

And, finally, I made my Lil' Pumpkin a little pumpkin pillowcase dress.

Happy Almost-Halloween!!!

  2. You are totally amazing! When do you sleep? Dee Dee

  3. Thanks, Monica! And I love the decor on the front of your house! I am totally going to have to do that on the left side of my porch. I have a huge spider web on the right and have been looking for something simple yet spooky to balance it out. Thanks for the idea!

  4. I love you now more than I did before! People who get into Halloween are the best. Those mummy sticks - ha, so cute! :) xo

  5. Thanks Leslie! Can't wait to see how your porch looks too!!
