Let's Decorate for Halloween - Part 1
If you know me, you know I love Halloween. Okay, let me rephrase that, I LOVE HALLOWEEN. It is my favorite holiday and there is nothing I love more than dressing up and decorating the house this type of year. And since we will be celebrating at home this year, that means I’ll have to up my decorating game. So today I'm going to share with you some of my favorite Halloween goodies!

As I’ve said before, I love Halloween. I usually decorate the house in September, and I start thinking about costumes in early June or July. I know, you might think that’s crazy, but you need time to plan and make an epic costume.
This year is a strange one, that is for sure. I live in one of the states with the highest COVID numbers, so we have decided to forgo the trick or treating and just celebrate at home. But that doesn’t mean it’s not going to be fun.
And since we are staying home this year, I need to up my decorating game this year. I’m decorating both in the house as well as the front and back yards this year. We are planning on hiding candy around the back yard and letting my daughter find them. Kinda like an easter egg hunt, but with a spooky feel. So even though we aren't planning on going out, I think it will be a special occasion anyway. And that means more decorations!
I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite spooky finds on Etsy. Check them out and tell me what you think!
First, I want to show you one of my favorites indoors decorations. These awesome bats for your wall. I mean look at them. They are amazing. I put bats up every year. And I think you should add some you your Halloween decoration.
There are lots of different options on Etsy, so you can find the perfect wall bats for you. I am personally fond of these bats from Shop Fluff.
Next up is my love of garland. I don't know what is is about it, I love garland. I love to put it up and I really love all the amazing garland you can get for Halloween.
Check out this amazing garland from Shop Cherry Sprinkles. I am in love with these little eyeballs. And the best part, they are totally customizable.
Check them out as well as all the other great garland in Shop Cherry Sprinkles shop.
Okay, one more garland and then I'll move on.
Oh my, look at these little ghost cuties. How could you not love these little tassel ghosts? They are so cute. And if you're not into these, Grim Grinning Goodies has a whole bunch of other tassel garland that is sure to please you.
Okay, let's move on from garland (I told you I loved it). I won't lie, I do have many more garlands save in my favorites because, well, I have a problem.
Look at this beauty. This sign would look great on a bookshelf or a mantle. I think it would really make any room a little bit more fun and a little bit more spooky. Check out this sign as well as all the others at Prince Wood Signs.
And finally, because you had to know that there would be beads, let's spooky up the place with a beaded beauty.
And of course it wouldn't be Halloween with a little bit of beadwork from my collection. This beaded skull would bring spookiness to any Halloween décor.
Okay, so let's step outside for a bit and talk about some of my favorites for the front of your home (and the sides, and the roof, and the garage, and the backyard. My point is, you should put decorations anywhere you can)
Okay, so lets say you're one that doesn't want to go to spooky, just a little spooky. You still want your house to be inviting (maybe you are planning on having trick or treaters). Let's start with this sign!
Look at how cute this welcome sign is. It would look great at anyone's front porch. Check out all the great signs at Oconee Sign Shack. They have signs for all over your home.
But if you like things a little bit more spooky, check out his awesome skeleton lawn ornament.
This spooky lawn decore from Haag Made would scare anyone. Just imagine a few of these in your front yard, skeleton's reaching from beyond the grave. Check out all the amazing metal signs and furniture they have.
Speaking of spooky yard decor, check out this grim reaper.
Place this next to a tree to scare the neighborhood kids. Or close to the front door to deter anyone from ringing that bell. This grim reaper from AIG Print On-Line would be the perfect addition to anyone's Halloween decorations.
And finally for today, let's look at a little window decoration, which is perfect if want to get spooky, but don't have a yard.
Check out these cool window sticker set from Amaze Gift UK. They have a bunch of different window stickers that you could use on every window of your house or apartment. These are perfect for those that don't have a yard to put decorations in (or maybe you don't want to put as much effort in your decorations as I do).
Okay, so that's all I'm going to go through today, but come back on Friday for the rest of my favorite picks! I mean, of course I have my favorite costumes, accessories, and crafts.
