Halloween Decorations


(Oct. 2017 Note - I apologize for any broken links in this post. Bloggers come and go over the years, and, sadly, sometimes so do their links!)
 Because most of our home is off-limits during our remodel, my craft room has become Halloween Central at our house this fall. 

  Last year I had a blast making Halloween decorations inspired by my blog buddies and Pinterest. My Boo blocks were inspired by The Crafting Chicks tutorial.

 The framed Trick or Treat artwork is from a free download created by Karen at The Graphics Fairy.

 This cute witch's broom parking sign is a free download from Kristy at The Diary of Dave's Wife, and my black witch's hat (my favorite Halloween decoration) was inspired by Sherry's gorgeous witch's hat at The Charm of Home.


 I added some creepy bottles to my decorations this year. These Halloween labels can be found on Pinterest here,

here, and  here.

 My Halloween banner is from Jenny's free download at Allsorts

The adorable vintage art for my Halloween Tag Collection comes from my old Broderbund Holidays and Celebrations CD.

 I'm so excited about decorating my little craft room for Halloween that I wanted to share something with you, too. 

 Just click on each photo below and when it opens in a new window, right click and save it to your computer. Each vintage tag measures 2.5" x 4".


I love creating holiday tags using vintage art. 
I just print the pictures out on cardstock and glue them onto stiff mat-board. Next, I add some chunky glitter here and there and tie it with a ribbon. I store my tags in ziplock bags with our other holiday decorations. They're fun and easy to make, and they make me smile every year when I unpack them!

  7. What a wonderful collection of projects Laurel! I love the way you've pulled them all together with the banner and the shutters! And the tags are adorable! ... You know, I've been wanting to host a witch hat decorating party for the longest time, but my friends are not particularly crafty. I think they would groan if I suggested it. Wouldn't that be such fun!
