How Do You Boo?

I love my Halloween decorations, they're glittery, fun colors and a little on the tacky side maybe.  This year I got a few new things, and made a few new things and then added lots of ribbon everywhere.  It is fairly inexpensive and really adds a lot, in fact I think the theme of all these pictures is cheap. I added quite a few new things this year, but I only spent $10!!!   Here's what I like to do, what do you put up for Halloween?

I already had everything in this picture except for the black crow that I picked up at the Dollar Tree, I just added a strand of ribbon and colored some rice with orange food coloring, the black fabric underneath was leftover from last years Halloween costumes and its sparkly!P1010924 (2)
The garland was made with paper from my stash that I stitched together on the sewing machine.  The small black pumpkin I got last year at Michael's on clearance and I picked up the BIG orange pumpkin this year at Target in the Dollar Spot for only $2.50!!!

This banner was intended to go above my entertainment center but got way too big for that.  I used a bunch of die cuts I got at Michael's.  I got an enormous pack for on $4.  I still have lots left for crafting next year!

This is the built-in in the kitchen.  The chipboard sign I picked up last year, unpainted from Hobbly Lobby, I think I paid $.30 for it.  I added some scraps of fabric from my stash and a few bits of ribbon.  That is candy corn in the wall sconces and little "flags" tied with ribbon onto twigs, from my yard.

This is probably my favorite spot.  I made the garland a few years ago, and then I just added ribbon to everything else.
This fun sign came from the Dollar Tree- I've seriously found so much good stuff there.  All I needed to do was add some ribbon and a little glitter spray (which doesn't show in the pictures, but really looks great in person)
And, this cute picture was taken earlier in the month when the weather was amazing!  While Viv was at school, Sophie and Nathan decided they wanted to take a nap outside so they rigged up this little set-up and stayed snuggled up for almost 30 mintes.  Definitely not a nap, but I'm not complaining!
