A Tradition Continues.......

Last year, Trick or Treat party was held at my house as I was the only house left in the avenues willing to have a party.  Post here with last year's decor and party.  The new tradition continues this year even though I have moved.  The new house, still in avenues, has bigger enteraining area plus it more appealing for those cute trick-or-treaters (Im located on the main blvd).  Knowing this would be, I have been working on decor since the beginning of September.  Mostly everything is handmade with a few bought items added in.  Most of my inspiration have come from pictures collected on pinterest or ads out of magazines like pottery barn.  Here we go:

Let's start withe of the house......

The SPOOKY letters and candy corn garland are from last year with added pumpkins and sign purchased from TJ Maxx (last year)

Continuing in the living room.....

In the display box is one of the many layouts from last year's Trick or Treat.  We love to look back and see how the kids tastes in costumes change just within a year.  The spider plate is a new diy addition.  Gotta give credit to "Crap I've Made" for the idea.  I used a white plate from dollar tree, black puff paint and a spider ring leftover from last years goodie stash.


Next up is the Sofa table with the Subway art and Glittered Witches Hats......

The subway art is from Eighteen 25 and the other print is from Craftily Ever After.  The Witches Hats idea came from Oopsey Daisey


 The Boo Banner is my own creation.  I used Glitter cardstock and "Boo" line details from American Crafts
The glitter spiders where purchased at Micheals.

On to the kitchen/dinning room.....

More candy corn banners above the kitchen sink

 A little fall decor above fridge... all puchased in previous years from Tj Maxx/Marshalls
 Can't really see it in the picture above  but if you look in the lower right corner the are some spiders crawling up the fridge door.  I simply cut the ring part off and with a little sticky tack attached them to the door in a curved line.

"EEK" letters are also from Eighteen 25.....

If you notice in the background above there is a jar of candy corn, a better picture of this to come....just need to fill the third jar.   The idea came from Eighteen 25, i just updated their easter theme with halloween and used wooden candle sticks I already had on hand.  The plan is to use these year round for each holiday.

Moving on to the outside.....

This is a work in progress as i have run out of tulle.....

The jumbo spiders and the web were purchased this year from my local Dollar Tree.  When its dark outside and the light in the dinning room is on, the web looks like it glowing...so cool!
 The start of the front entrance......

All the pumpkins are fake craft ones from either Micheals or Dollar Tree (small orange and glittered brown).  I simply wrote my initials and bats on the white ones with a sharpie. The black poka dot was done by using garage sale stickers and painting the pumpkin black with acrylic craft paint. Glittered pumpkin were done with Krylon's new glitter spray paint and dollar tree pumpkins.  Scarecrows were purchased from walmart two years ago.
 My skeletons were made using my silhouette and this file.  I enlarged the pieces and attached them using brads.  Since we are dancers in this family, "S" is in a perfect tilt and attitude jump.
 Underneath "S" is a spider family and two pumpkins.  Both purchased last year from Marshalls.
 Just a small wreath on the bedroom door.

MOre decor to come.  Party pics will be posted after Halloween......Stay Tuned!

I LOVE all your decor! Especially those SPOOKY letters covered with AC Halloween paper - that was one of the last lines I worked on before we moved to California :)
