Easy Halloween Touches

What a week it's been! So much to celebrate. :-)

How about a few more inexpensive, easy Halloween touches for your house? Here are a couple more ideas we did here. 

Halloween Sidelight

Sidelight Window  

I actually saw this idea in a BH&G Halloween special issue magazine and tweaked it a little to make it my own. Simply take some tissue paper from the gift wrap aisle and choose a Halloween color. I went with a weird, bright green. I had some Halloween letter stickers leftover in my scrapbooking file, and used those. What is easier than peeling and sticking letters? Done.

Wait! Attach it all to the inside of your sidelight window. Okay, now you're done.




Orange Halloween Sidelight

 Hmmm... I took this second picture at night, and for some reason, it's looks orange! Oh well.... Now you see what it would've looked like if you picked orange tissue paper! LOL


Light Bulbs    

Green Porch Lights

Green Outdoor Lights



Remember Remember when I said what could be easier? Well... this can. Simply change your  porch/outdoor light bulbs out for black light or green bulbs. Big impact for hardly any effort or cash. Love it!

Hope you're having as much fun with the season as we are. I'd love to hear what you're doing at your house for Halloween!

I missed it!

Happy, happy birthday to you!

I *love* those dishes you picked. I've been looking long and hard for a similar set. You're right.. pretty, but not too poofy.

I love these inexpensive ideas! My house is decorated with toddler touches--it's not fancy. I drew several Halloween pictures in black marker (bats, pumpkins, witches brew, cats, ghosts) and then I let my toddler color all the pictures. I hung his pictures up all around the room. Then I put up black and orange streamers and made little pom-pom spiders and hung them from the ceiling. Like I said, not fancy, but the boys really like it.
