With Halloween just around the corner and being in a new area, we are super excited to meet more of our neighbours and families! It’s such a fun night seeing all the kiddies and adults all dressed up in their costumes. Everyone comes out of their homes and chats in the street which is the part I love the most. It gives a real sense of community. So today along with some of my blogging friends we are sharing some fun Simple Halloween Decorating Ideas that you can try too!

Shopping our house is the first place I start when decorating. You can move things from room to room and get a whole nice new look. Take for instance the Bat Twig Tree in the centre of the table. This is our forever changing twig tree that gets redecorated a… lot! It started out as a Vintage Doily Twig Tree. After removing it from its Numbered Enamel Jug and then popping into this cute Pumpkin Pail, add some scrunched up old book pages, it became the focal point for our tablescape.
These cardboard bats were from last year. The template can be found here. There are 2 different sizes and these were the larger ones.
Using Spooky Halloween Labels, you can dressed up some thrifted side plates to keep those bats from flying around too much.
Remember those doilies I was talking about earlier that was on my twig tree? They kinda look like vintage spider webs don’t you think? Thrifted silver candlesticks that were in our sideboard were happy to come out and play. Along with the mercury glass tea light holders that we used on our Christmas Tablescape. Don’t tell anyone, they have been out since then!!
Where to find the goodies
Mini Pumpkins, scary spiders and creepy cloth were all found at the local $2 Shop. But I found online some Pumpkins, Spiders and creepy cloth white or black too if you don’t have one close by. The BOO! Garland was found surfing Pinterest last year. Add some torn scraps of fabric and you’re done.
Little BOO pumpkin was a 20c thriftshop find painted white, antiqued and a vinyl label.
All I can say is heaven help us if an actual spider should appear among all of these Halloween Goodies. Hubby and I are petrified of them. Hubby more so, because I’m usually the one who sends those spidies on their way. He’s usually standing on a chair somewhere covering his eyes!! I should have had spider removal written into the wedding vows! Ahh well, he can deal with the snakes if we have any this Summer!
