Two Teens And Their Mama: Halloween Decor Tour

Halloween Decor Tour


I love to decorate for Halloween.  When the boys were little I went crazy with spider webs and ghosts all over the house, but over the years I've reduced things to my favorite pieces.

Please join me on a Halloween Decor Tour!

I made the above mason jars using chalk paint and stencils.  I am not crafty AT ALL, but I thought they turned out pretty good.  


Funny story with this little pumpkin.  Last year I signed my hubby up for a glass blowing class, thinking it was for adults.  Reminder to self - always read the small print. Anyway, when he arrived, everyone else was under the age of 10.  Hubby was a good sport and went ahead with the class, and of course the kids thought he was hysterical!



My mother in law gave me these china pumpkins over twenty years ago.  I have no idea how they survived two little boys.



These are my very favorite decorations, so they get a place of honor on the living room mantle.  The Halloween tree makes me so happy, and the funny tombstones remind me of the ones at Disney World.




My mom made this cross stitched haunted house scene for me last year.


And of course, the outside decor.  Because what fun would Halloween be if you didn't try to scare the trick or treaters!
