This was posted to the blog Every Creative Endeavor last week as part of the Fall Fever series. I’m posting it here if you didn’t see it over there. I’ve actually finished the shelves now so I’ll have that up later this week.

I love decorating for Halloween. I don’t like gory but I do like a little spooky. And I’m cheap so these spiders and doilies from the dollar store were the perfect supplies to make my garland. I already had the beaded trim and glitter letters.

I just wanted to use the center of the doily for the garland so I cut the outer part off.

Then I stuck the glitter letters on the spiders to spell out Halloween.

And stuck the spiders on the doilies using glue dots. I used a small hole punch to make 2 holes in the top of each doily to run the trim through.

Then I strung the spiders on the trim.

And hung it in my dining area. I love black, white and silver for Halloween. I always add a bit of orange, green and purple too.

Now I just need to decorate the shelves. Please tell me I’m not the only one who isn’t finished decorating for Halloween.

Do you decorate for Halloween? Are you finished?
