Quick & Easy Halloween Decorating

Sometimes, I tend to over complicate things.

Sometimes, when I take on a project – there is a tornado in my wake and then I am overwhelmed.

But, sometimes, I am in Target and see this package (for $5!)…

…and I have a quick and easy idea.


Instead of putting the vinyl decals on my walls, I put them on my plates and pitchers.

Now, I have simple Halloween decorations that only took five minutes and I don't have to worry about my walls.


I even put one on my new tureen I found yesterday for $5. It was on an outside table filled with dirt and water. There is a crack – but it even has the ladle!


I simply tucked in a few Halloween candles…


…and a couple of sparkly silhouettes, and of course, some pumpkins.


And called it done.

There are bins of Halloween items that may be sad and lonely this year, but sometimes simple is the best choice!

You could do this in your dining room or your kitchen.

How about on a picture frame in your family room?

Or on a mirror in your entry or bathroom?

If you are looking for some more Halloween ideas, you can follow along on Pinterest.


Thanks so much for reading.
