Last night after I got home from work & while watching a prerecorded “All My Children” (Don’t judge), I flipped through a few magazines that just arrived in time for my Halloween crafting/baking/thinking/decorating.
I really love to decorate for Halloween. Not sure why (maybe it is because I love to decorate. period.). I never cared much for haunted houses or even trick-or-treating so I don’t associate any of those with my fondness for the day/time of year. Maybe it’s just fall and the jolly jack o’lanterns and everything apple and pumpkin that comes with it.
Pumpkin breads/fry cakes/cider. Yum! Don’t get me started.
Where was I?
I think what I love most about it is the colors and the contrast they have against walls/displays/furniture/etc. Orange & Black. Simple decorations are best. ❤ Ceramic pumpkins, black cats & bats, and white ghosts. Nice. — Not into red blood/gore, gobs&gobs of neon green glow-in-the-dark webbing, or even dangling skeletons and dull tombstones. None of that for me.
Here are a couple of pages with things that I want to recreate:
I love the black branch above the door and the wreath. Spooky yet still tasteful.
The bat tree that sprung from the pumpkin. Cute.
The spray painted black flowers. Simple but with impact.
+Working on a few craft projects and seeing ANYTHING that can inspire or spark any sort of idea makes the effort put into the project(s) x98561549156 that much more rewarding!
