Halloween Decor

Share This Post

OK, so the kiddo’s and my favorite time of year is coming soon!  Halloween!!!  We love Halloween aka Cosplay Christmas, more than any other time of the year.  I mean, a holiday dedicated to dressing up?  Yes, please!

Every year, we wait as long as possible to decorate the castle.  We held out as long as we could again this year, but the time has come to decorate.

Here is how we decorated the inside of the castle:


All the items are from Michael’s craft store, except the Rumple dagger, that is from Spirit Halloween.

We just got a nice variety of fun things to place on the mantle and stuck with a black, white and grey color scheme.

Here’s the outside of the castle:


First off, we love our new acquisition, Torch aka the inflatable dragon.  We got him at Big Lots.


Here’s some upclose of the front door area:

The Ouja doormat and broom are from Spirit Halloween.  The pumpkins and skulls are all from Michael’s.

Here’s an upclose look at the monster door:


When you have a colorful front door, making a monster door is just about the easiest thing ever.  If you don’t have a colorful front door, you can cover the door with wrapping paper and then make a monster, no problem.  You just need posterboard and a big pair or google eyes from Michael’s and you’re all set!  Check out Pintrest for tons of fun ideas on how to make your own unique door.

So happy that Halloween approaches!  Please send us pictures of your decorating ideas!

Love, Kim and Scout
