Halloween Decorations

Happy Monday! I've been taking a lot of quiet walks lately. I'm liking the comfortable chill, and I'm loving that the colors of the leaves are slowly changing into their autumn best.

Orange against a blue sky...breathtakingly TADA! I hope the leaves hang-out on the trees as long as possible because I think barren trees are blah.

I come across lots of twigs during my walks. I think they make wonderful crafting materials for Halloween. Here are some ideas from magazines that I put together to show you how twigs can turn from blah to TADA!:

Whether you use these twigs to display Halloween characters like bats and birds, or use them to display Halloween treats, they are sure to add a spooky surprise in your home. Have a nice day!

To those in the US East Coast, wishing you warmth and safety as Hurricane Sandy approaches.


  1. All the twigs look great but I like Martha Stewart's one the best! Thanks for sharing, Claire!
    Do you decorate for Halloween? I do very little, usually just a 'gaping pumpkin' :) In other words I don't do a good job of carving pumpkins!

    1. So nice to hear from you today, Betty! I normally don't decorate because of space limitations as apartment dwellers. But I do put up a DIY sign on Halloween for the trick or treat-ers! Thanks for your visit :)

  2. Loving the little trees. They're a great way to get into the Halloween spirit without putting out gross, plastic decorations everywhere. I could even make a tree and redo it for Thanksgiving! What great ideas for decorating for the fall!

    1. Thanks Julianne! You're right, these trees aren't just for Halloween :)
