It hit me this week that, uhhhhh, Halloween is like, in two days and I hadn’t shown you more of my decor. Maybe you can file some ideas away for next year, yes?
Most of my Halloween decor — well ALL of my Halloween decor — was made by moi or purchased on the cheap. I showed you my free spooky mantel here, my ghouly candleholders here and my Halloween crafting here. All were super cheap or faaaareeee!
Here’s more of the other el cheapo decorations I promise every one of you can do!
A glittery word from Hob Lob, cut off the ribbon and attach it to scrapbook paper in an old frame:
The gumball machine was $4 at Goodwill and I couldn’t. resist. it. I tried, I did. It’s perfect for peanut M&M’s. Makes it a bit harder to get to them, which is a good thing. 😉
These labels are free online (if you search Halloween labels you should find some) — I did these last year with Goodwill bottles so I can’t remember where I found them:
This year I got a few more little jars for $.25 each at GW, and printed off itty bitty labels I found here. (You have to see all of the ideas Lorie finds — amazing!! I couldn’t find the actual post for these — do you know where it is Lorie?)
Four bucks total, I believe? I think the paper cost more than the pumpkin for this one:
I took some scrap wood, spray painted it, distressed it and drilled holes for the ribbon to hang it:
I’ll also share my first Christmas project next week — I’ve mentioned it before but you’ll need some time to prepare for this one. 😉
