Time for Halloween

That is time to decorate for Halloween around our house!

It's officially October and thus time to commence operation cobweb the house.

Also time to skip dusting!LOL

Since we tend {alright I tend} to get a bit batty with Halloween decor both inside and outside...I got started. It's a several step process. Get the items out, figure out where to put them, move around again, make some new things and then start with the cobwebs, lights and this year we're adding in spanish moss which gives that spooky, old look....but yet isn't.lol

Here's some of the things we've got started in the house...  





Halloween Treat Jar
Designer: Julia Sandvoss
Glue Arts Car Accents Black Out
Cricut Expression
Cricut Happy Hauntings Cartridge

Use your Cricut and cut our the skeleton. Apply to glass jar. Fill with colored beans or rocks...skulls, bugs...then tuck in some scary finger suckers! Or add a battery operated flicker candle!


Halloween Wall Decor
Designer: Julia Sandvoss

Glue Arts Car Accents Black Out
Glue Arts Mini Adhesive Squares
Cricut Expression
Cricut Happy Hauntings Cartridge
Colored Gems

Use your Cricut and cut out the crows and cat. Tuck around your home. If you have a room with a chair rail...have them "sit" on the rail. Add then above photos too.  Add some colored gems for eyes...green and red will have them looking a bit spooky!  




Halloween Mirror with Eyes
Designer: Julia Sandvoss


Glue Arts Car Accents Black Out and Pumpkin Patch
Cricut Expresssion
Cricut October 31st Cartridge

Use your Cricut and cut out a set of eyes. Select a mirror or even picture in your home to add the eyes onto and then finish up with some cobwebs for a very spooky mirror that looks back at you!!


Tune in later this week for more ideas for around the house using the Car Accents products...they are so easy to work with and really make your house look amazing!!!
