Although I decorated our home for fall a couple of weeks ago, I was ready this week to add all the witches and more to the scarecrows for a real Halloween feel. Sweet Shark loves having the house decorated for every holiday and Halloween is one of his favorites. For several years, we added a witch or 2 each year, sometimes purchasing ones on vacation as souvenirs. Which means that every year we have more witches to add to our collection. So today I’m sharing our Halloween Home Tour with Witches and Scarecrows.
Let’s start at the front door. I made this fall door hanger last year and I’ll be using it through Thanksgiving.
We don’t have a front porch, but we do have a little space next to the front door to set out our scarecrows with some pumpkins and chrysanthemums.
Step over our Boo! mat into the house.
When I arrived home on Sunday from the BlogHer Food Conference, Sweet Shark had unpacked all our Halloween decorations and they were waiting for me. They took up the entire kitchen island. I had to get busy. And now they are spread out in the living room and kitchen.
Before stepping into the living room, I had to dress up the powder bath with this cute little Halloween owl.
On our mantle in the living room, I gather quite a few of our witch collection. It’s the faces on many of the witches that is so appealing.
This is one of our new witches that we bought on our trip to Scottsdale in September. Her green skin reminds me of the witch in The Wizard of Oz.
This little witch doll is new and came from a local gift shop.
What a face. Another new witch bought in Scottsdale.
Pumpkins can have funny faces, too. I’ve left the candle looking melted rather than replace it with a new one.
A pumpkin~head man and a couple of scarecrows sit on the book shelf.
I love sunflowers, and mums in the fall with raffia as filler. The greenery are bay leaves a friend gave me this week. I used my Remington Sure Shot box again as a container. I love the rustic look surrounded by mini~pumpkins.
I used my little chalk board for some Halloween signage. I’m working on my lettering skills.
I tried my hand on my big chalk board, too.
This broom handle is one of our favorite Halloween decorations. It wiggles around and sings a song when you make aloud noise. It can scare you a bit.
On the breakfast room chandelier, I hung some party fans from My Mind’s Eye that I bought at the Pinner’s Conference last month.
In the kitchen, I added some mini orange pumpkins for the vent~a~hood for some pop of Halloween color.
That’ve everything I’ve done so far. A few more tweaks here and there. Thanks for dropping in for my Halloween Home Tour and meeting some of our witches and scarecrows.
Have a great weekend. I hope your weather is delightfully fallish with no hurricanes.
