Trick almost Treat

It has begun. And it's very daunting. I haven't decorated for Halloween before. This is our first Halloween in our house and we are throwing a party this year. So naturally I want it decorated! I don't have much and I don't have much of a knack for Halloween decor. So, this is what I have so far, I need to do way more. 

I am posting this so I can get some suggestions! I thought, who better to help me with this than the oh so talented readers I have?! ::bats my eyes:: So, what do you guys think? What should I do/change?

Thanks for the help! 

Ok so here's my mantel. The branch art above it is there year long, so I just added those little bats. I finally got to use my Boogity Boo banner!! What should I add or remove? 

I hung my Ghouls from these cutouts we have upstairs. It's in my foyer/great room so these guys can be seen right when you walk in!

But what should I do to the staircase?

Oh, and here's my latest wreath!! All it took was a grapevine wreath, a bag of rubber or plastic bugs (assorted, of course) hot glue and black spray paint!! My bugs were rubber and the spray paint wasn't sticking to it so I used some Mod Podge to seal the paint to the bugs. 


  1. You might want to run by Michaels, Hobby Lobby or any craft store and pick up some of the webbing they have at Halloween. You could spread it up the stairway and across your mantle to make it look more eerie. Also, I loke using pumpkin jack o lanterns along my walk or one on either side of the sidewalk leading to the "haunted mansion". Anything spooky throughout the house will work. ...and don't forget the guest bath for a real surprise to your guests. Happy Haunting!!!

  2. Very good suggestions!!! That's a good idea for webbing on the staircase!! I love it! Thanks!

  3. Orange Halloween lights would be cute wrapped up the staircase. Love the ghost hangings too. Like/dislike your wreath, love the creativity but dislike bugs-Ack! LOL.... Holly :-)
