This past weekend was cool and rainy...it felt like fall was just around the corner.
And today it is muggy and mid 80's. Fall...you are such a tease!
We decorated anyway this weekend and despite the warm temps we are enjoying our new fall decor. The boys were really excited to help and most of the decorations are kid friendly.
Pumpkins to replace the candles on the mantle candlesticks...
Wooden pumpkins on the dining room table...
We have several ghost and bat pillows in the living room...by far the boys' favorite! My little one walks around the house with a ghost in front of his face saying "ooooooooooooooooooh" I wonder where he got that idea? :)
A new spider wreath I made for the front door. I wrapped orange yarn around a straw wreath, added some black ribbon, and a big felt spider I found at Michaels.
My mother-in-law (Mimi) was in town this past week and she did a fun fall craft with the boys. They made pumpkins out of circus peanut candy and gum drops. Then they filled up the truck with their "harvest"! I love it! And the report from Mimi is that the boys had a blast making the pumpkins too!
My husband has been taking the boys on lots of hikes lately and they always come home with pockets full of acorns and pinecones too! I love having them out on the table for decoration. And the boys love playing with them and counting them and they are a great reminder of a fun day spent with daddy in the woods.
We planted our fall mums a couple of weekends ago...and they are very loved and thoroughly watered.
And finally...I made the boys some new felt toys/cookies to play with! I love working with my embroidery machine but love it even more when I get to make something for my boys that they enjoy!
So there you have it...a peek at our Halloween decor. Nothing very extravagant...it all fits in one Tupperware box...but having it up is making our new house feel more like home!
Have you decorated for fall yet?
