Floating Spooky Spiderweb Halloween Decor [My Dollar Store DIY]

Truth be told, I may end up skipping my Fall decor this year and head straight to Halloween! Anyone else?! Today is the last Thursday of the month which means its time for another edition of My Dollar Store DIY where a group of us stake out fun and inexpensive finds at our local dollar store and whip up a DIY decor piece. This month’s theme is Halloween and we still have a whole month to go before it rolls around! Today I’m sharing my DIY Floating Spooky Spiderweb Halloween decorations that are now bobbing around above my dining room table! Continue reading

[Last-Minute Decorating] Simple Halloween Mantel

Slow & steady wins the race. Or is it, last one to finish is still a winner?! Either way, I know Halloween is less than 1 week away, but I just HAD to do a little last-minute decorating. We’ve had our fall decor out since the first week of September, but I find it VERY difficult to muster up the energy to take it all down and trade everything out for Halloween decor. Right?! Even as a blogger, when holiday decorating is serious business, I just can’t ever gear up to make something halfway presentable.

Feeling Happy on Halloween!

Well, I just got home from a little craft-run at Michael’s and have a TON of ideas brewing! I would love to hop right on into Christmas, but we still have a little Fall left and Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away! I didn’t quite finish the playroom bench over the weekend like I wanted to, but have my fabric ready to roll! As soon as my husband cuts the board down to size, it should be a done deal! Since most projects are middle-of-the-road for now, I thought I would share a few pics from all of the Halloween festivities last week. I think celebrating is only going to become more and more fun each year as the boys get older, but this year was still a blast!

Hope you all had a nice Halloween weekend as well! I hope to see you back here soon 🙂
