DIY Halloween Decor

Are you like me and have more post in Pinterest than time? 
Well, I made a promise to myself that I would make or try at least 4 of my pins each week and test them for a pass or fail grade. 
SO.....here goes.
Autumn is here and as we approach closer to Halloween, our decorations will become more macabre, but for now...let's go with Fall Cutesy.
Here is the Cheesecloth Ghost
My final judgement....
It passes! This was SO much fun to make.  SO easy and SO cheap.  
The possibilities are endless with this. 
Here he is keeping company with the rest of the decorations.

My final thoughts...
I love them all!!
Happy Fall Ya'll and Happy Crafting!!
Hugs to you,
Lisa x

What fresh genius is THIS? LURVE the ghost, love e bats! Your wreath is so pretty. I hope you get to ick or treaters. We have a couple new kids in the neighborhood, so i am hopeful this year, but last year we had none. I had to eat ALL the chocolate all by myself....

Such cute and fun ghost decorations. Do you have a Halloween tree as well? If yes, I look forward to seeing it!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your front door! I grabbed some bats from the $1 bin at Target but can't decide where to put them yet. I have mice on the stairs and spiders in the powder room... It could be that I have too many decorations! The ghost looks awesome. Glad to hear it was easy. I've been meaning to try one of these. You may have pushed me into it. LOL!

This takes me back to when Lauren was little - we made a bunch of cheesecloth ghosts and hung them in the trees. Yours is adorable!

Oh Lisa I love the front entry! classy and creepy at the same time! I love the ghost, always wanted to try it, no excuses but I won't get it done this year either, lol I love how the rats come up the steps, and the bats all over, nice!! Thanks for the ideas, it is so windy here I cannot put our decorations out until the week before, they may blow away! no kidding!
BTW love the previous pumpkins, love them!!
Have a cool day no runs in the face day,

So stinkin cute and clever Lisa - Had to pin it here. Now for the kick in the butt to get me moving! and OMG.. those little mice (sounds cuter than "rats") are so fun. I bet I could scare the hell out of my neighbors with those!

Margaret said...

What?! You mean people actually MAKE the things they pin???? ;)
This is an awesome idea and I LOVE the cheesecloth ghost and your absolutely marvelous porch!
I am also loving that your blog received a makeover as well! The background is fantastic and I love the header!!
