HaPpY hAlLoWeEn!!!

I am totally in the spirit for Halloween!! So I decided to put up all my decorations! I got a lot of them from the dollar tree and some of them I have accumulated over the years from Michael's and other craft stores!
I have a “Halloween” Birthday party for my husband every year! So I decorate my house completely!  I will take pictures the day of but here are some of the rooms that I have done!
My Dining Room BEFORE:
HALLOWEEN DECO 013
AFTER:
HALLOWEEN DECO 033
I used cob webs and covered my hutch I had a another huge black slider that I hid under it as well!
HALLOWEEN DECO 035 HALLOWEEN DECO 036
HALLOWEEN DECO 039 HALLOWEEN DECO 040
I have a black leaf garland in the back of everything wrapped in purple lights! I have body pieces all around and in the cake stand! I put tulle over the mirror and hung spiders that I made from the cricut down the mirror!
HALLOWEEN DECO 042

I cut out the spiders and hung them on the mirror...

 I did all different sizes...I then took crazy glue and glued string to the back of them so that it would look like they were hanging from the mirror!


I used a black bed sheet for the “table cloth” with a “cheese cloth” looking material for the runner! I have a

huge spider as the center piece and black candles!
HALLOWEEN DECO 043
I got black tulle and tied an end to our chandelier  then strong it to each corner in the room!
HALLOWEEN DECO 028
HALLOWEEN DECO 090
HALLOWEEN DECO 089 HALLOWEEN DECO 092
HALLOWEEN DECO 093 HALLOWEEN DECO 094
I hung another cloth over the mirror. I put white candles in the sconces  but first dripped a red candle on them to look like blood. I put two boas on the fire place with purple & orange lights. There is also two black pumpkins on either side and a black skull! If you look around the fireplace you will see little mice….
HALLOWEEN DECO 044 HALLOWEEN DECO 047
I got a black plastic table cloth from the dollar store and ripped it down the middle and hung it as drapes/curtains in to every door way!
HALLOWEEN DECO 073

Good old Martha Stewart! She has the template on her website! I made these last year and they lasted because I laminated each and everyone ! YES it was tedious but it was worth it and a cheap decor! I put them all over the house! In my kitchen, dining room, bathroom and living room! Here is the website:

LOVE it all! My fave i think is the tulle and the spiders you made with the cricut! I may need to steal that idea and use my silhouette to make some rats, spiders and bats!!

You've left no spooky detail undone. There are so many interesting items. I think I like how your table turned out with the black sheet and shredded runner and the black leaves with purple lights the best.
