EEEK! Spider wall and Halloween Banister

I do love October!

Matt always records a bunch of scary movies that we watch through the month.

I hate scary movies!  I hate feeling scared and icky!  But, alas I try!

There have been shows that I flat out stop with, never care to finish!

We try to go the retro route, those movies seem to be more manageable to me, although I always have to watch something happy after, to get me all normal again!

We are working on The Candyman right now.

I think I'm pretty much decorated for fall and Halloween now!  I hope to catch a few extra minutes to make some stuff, but it doesn't look too promising right now!

New ideas are creativity right?  Must be because I came up with these ideas/solutions and I felt pretty creative!  So, if I don't get to that wreath it may be ok!

I bought these sparkle spiders on clearance last year.

My plan was to craft with them this year... did you read what I just said?  Not sure that will be happening... what to do with them... something...

Then it just popped right into my head, I don't know how!

I may have looked around the kitchen and wondered how to make it more festive.

Oh, this is gonna be good!

I got out my stick tack... remember this post where it saved my bacon?

I put it on the back side of these spiders...

... and started sticking them to the wall!

Love how it turned out!  My little O came into the kitchen and as he looked up he jumped a little!  It scared him!

I added just a little bit of webbing so it looks like they are crawling out of something.

What do you think?  I love it!



I also worked on my little bitty banister.

I seriously love tulle!  It's the best stuff!

I usually hang the battery powered lanterns here.

This year I added the skeletons. 

I hung the fuchsia ones with ribbon tied around their necks.

I had these skeleton heads that I usually put in a bowl. 

I thought it would be fun to hang them here.  How to hang them... hmmm.


These are floral pins.  You can get them at any craft store or even Walmart has them.

Stick that through his styrofoam brains...

Thread some ribbon through, now you can hang it!

It worked perfectly. 

My last addition, again with the stick tac and ribbon, was a sparkly spider.

I'm pretty happy with it!

Next week I'll take you on a tour of our Halloween House!

Are you just a little festive or do you go all out?
