Holidays, Set the Scene, it’s almost time for Halloween!

Set the scene, it’s almost time for Halloween!

Bottoms Up!

I know a lot of people aren’t fans of Halloween, and I personally do NOT like the creepy, gory side

I Want My Mummy


I like the cute side and just had to revisit favorite Halloween crafts, vignettes and tables




Halloween is less than 3 weeks away, but there is still plenty of time for some prep and fun

Painted Bottles and Chalkboard Tags


These funny Burlap Ghosts  are one of my favorite creations

{you could make these out of cheesecloth too}

They provide plenty of mischief and spooky fun, and cost just about nothing to make



This Haunted Halloween Mansion is made from a cardboard house form like these from Hobby Lobby here




See all the juicy details on the tutorial here




You can make Halloween treat bags for party favors with brown lunch sacks and a little paint




And don’t forget the candy corn!


Candy Corn Party



Crazy for Candy Corn



You can fly a Witch into your Door




For outside or inside decor!




Decorate with a stick broom and a Wine Bottle Burlap Witch




And if you have enough time you can make a witch with a stitch



And be sure to watch out for a Tipsy Witch



You don’t want her to land in your chandy



While you’re busy painting bags with Halloween candy!



Now is the time to have buckets of fun




Pull out all the stops, don’t be outdone!



And keep an eye out for Ghosts on the Coast




That’s the kind that can scare you the most



If they’re taking a moonlight boat cruise



It will surely send you straight to the BOOS



But I’m letting you know, there’s more to this show

Skellie Bone Bites

I’ve only just begun

Halloween Tree


Having this year’s Halloween fun

Witches Wicked Candlelight Supper


You might think it’s bizarre

the Witching Hour


There’s a skeleton in the back of my car!

Ghosts of Pirates Past


And he’s bound to raise an eyebrow,



When he arrives, any day now!

  4. You really do it up right, Jenna. I bet your grands absolutely love it! That boat of ghosts is super cute!


  5. Cute! I was reading in singsong. Does that qualify me as a famous rapper now?🤣🤣🤣 Totally off subject: is that a caramel color sofa or chair in the background of the 2nd photo? We recently purchased caramel color loveseats for the family room, and I’m interested in what colors others with that color furniture are using as accents? Like I said, off topic and totally random question, but I’m thinking really seriously now about making some other major changes to the room to accommodate the furniture. Don’t wanna go there if I don’t have to!


  6. Oh my goodness! So creative! 🎃

Thanks for all your ideas, hopefully some of them will make their way here for a festive fun Halloween. If only I were at the coast, I love the ghosts at the coast!
