Allison: Halloween Decorations

Hello again! I wanted to start my post by announcing the winner of the Halloween wreath giveaway from last week. And the winner is... (Drumroll, please)... Bethany!! To my question, "What is your favorite Fall craft or treat?" she responded:

"How about my favorite fall activity? I love going to the pumpkin patch! We always have so much fun. I love fall in the NW. Crisp, sunny days, the smell in the air, the leaves changing....it's the best!"

She made me particularly homesick for Oregon with that comment, but I won't hold it against her... too much. Congrats, Bethany! And a big thanks to everyone else who left a comment. We love hearing from all of you!

For this week's post, I'm being a little lazy. I'm going to share some ideas that I'm GOING to do, but haven't yet. But they were all so creative, that I wanted to share.

I love this first Halloween craft, because it's something that kids could help with. I think these little bats would be fun strung from trees in the front yard (or the cactus, in my case).  Here's where I found this idea.

I thought this next idea was really fun.  Using toilet paper or paper towel rolls, cut some "eyes" and insert a glow stick.  Then place them in bushes to shine like scary eyes in the night.  I've never seen this idea before, and with a 2 pack of glow sticks in the dollar section at Target, it's easy to accomplish. I found the idea here.

I kind of hate the water here in Arizona, which results in a lot of empty water gallon jugs in our recycling. So this next idea was a no-brainer. Those same dollar glow sticks would work great to line our front walkway Halloween night. I can't wait to see the end product! I found this idea here.

Last but not least, Pinterest helped me find this fun idea.  All you have to do is glue a magnet to the back of a plastic spider and stick them wherever you want.   Creeps me out just looking at it!  I only wish my door was made of metal.  I'm sure I can find somewhere to put them. Here's the original site for this idea.

So there you go! I'll try to take pictures of the final products Halloween night. What fun decorations do you have planned? I hope you all have a great week!!
