What are some decorating ideas for halloween?
Stacy From Indianapolis, Indiana
Several years ago we had a Halloween party. Here are some of the things that we did: 1. We stuffed a pair of jeans with newspaper and put skeleton feet at the end of the pants legs. Then we stuffed the whole thing in the fireplace and put spider webs all over it. It looked like some one had tried to come down the chimney and got stuck. 2. We stuffed a pair of jeans and a flannel shirt, put a horrible mask where the head should be and then made a hangman's noose and hung him from the ceiling. 3. We stuffed another pair of jeans and shirt, put a skeleton head, hands and feet on it. Then we set him at the piano with his head down on the keys and, of course, put spider webs around him. 4. We got a large pumpkin pinata and along with some candy we put in a lot of adult items, such as sample sizes of lotion, shampoo, aspirin, etc. You could even put in a few condoms, if you dare. 5. We had a witch on a broom hanging from the ceiling along with her black cat. Outside we had: 1. We dressed up a dressmaker's form as a witch and put her in front of a cauldron that was sitting on top of some firewood. The "fire" was three or four orange lightsticks. And we used dry ice for the steam coming out of the cauldron. She was also stirring in it with a stick. 2. My husband made a draculla's coffin out of plywood and painted it black. We stuffed a guy in it. I can't remember if we made him look like a skeleton or just used an ugly, horrible mask. Either one would work! We did a few other smaller things but these were the main ones. I hope this gives you some good ideas.
To make really cute fall decor that lasts from mid sept thru Thanksgiving, I make groupings of faux pumpkins and gourds. They are relativly inexpensive but make a real impact as a grouping. I love fall and can hardly contain myself when it comes to pumpkins. Happy decorating!
