Creative Halloween Decor

Yea! Our electricity is back on! Woo Hoo! There were 40,000 people here without electricity and they said it wouldn't be restored untill friday, so we were thrilled to be one of the first to get ours restored! Praise the Lord! Hubby now wants to buy a generator for the next time this happens.

Found some very creative Halloween decor ideas from a store called Curious Sofa in KS. I don't decorate for Halloween but I know many of you do...so I wanted to make sure I shared this with you. I'm sure if you are like me & don't decorate for halloween you will still be able to appreciate the creativity.



Here's an easy one...just buy eyeball gumballs & put them in a glass bowl or apothocary jar.


Another simple one...but please use a fake ax!!




This is my favorite! So clever! Hmm, where can you buy some legs???
Maybe manequin legs on eBay?


Easy Easy...black licorice or any black candy in pretty apothocary jars.


Stenciled pumpkins...how easy is that? Easy!
Ok, you got me on this one! I really don't know where you could get some skulls.

Do you know??


Wouldn't this be great on a guest bed! Of course, only during halloween! Unless that is if you don't want your guests to stay! LOL!

Darlene, do you follow Debbie's blog? I love her shop, but I've never been lucky enough to see it in person. She is great!

I don't really decorate for Hallowe'en. I'm doing a Mary Carol candelabra, with a crow sitting on it, for the secretary in the foyer. I usually have just a little bit of Hallowe'en stuff for the kids that come by.

I LOVE all these Halloween pics! We have such a small space, so I don't decorate for Halloween, but I can't wait 'til we have a bigger house to be able to try out some of these ideas. I especially love the black candy in the apothecary jars. What a great idea!

Thanks for stopping by just Beachy in the city :)

The spider one is so cute but creeps me out too. I guess that is what Halloween is all about.
Loved it
