Halloween Decorating

We've decided this weekend will be dedicated to sleeping in, eating big breakfasts in bed, and decorating for Halloween. Doesn't that sound amazing??

Here are my inspirations, from the queen Martha Stewart:

One of the many project we'll be tackling this weekend is making tombstones. I know we could just buy them at Party City or Michael's, but I'd rather save money and have a little fun by making them ourselves. We'll probably use plywood or something else cheap and paint.

I saw this cool pumpkin carving project in my Family Circle magazine. Those are Christmas lights sticking through the pumpkins! This project will probably have to be saved for the week before Halloween, though. I don't want our pumpkins to rot!

I think I'll try to find some cheesecloth to use instead of that fake spider web cotton stuff. It always leaves a huge mess and is so hard to clean up. I think I found some in my yard last week!

This web was made with hot glue... interesting... I also have some fake birds already because a couple of years ago I was Tipi Hendren from The Birds.

Those flowers are sooooo pretty. I love pretty flowers.

Ewwwwww cockroaches on the fruit!

I'll update after we decorate!

Oh, sounds like fun!! I am so excited to take Carter trick-or-treating this year, but I'm trying to find a good neighborhood to go to. Maybe we will stop by your house?? I love October because it means crunchy leaves, crisp nights, pumpkin patches and Halloween!! And then Thanksgiving and Christmas!!!!!! Yes!
