diy 'boo' halloween sign tutorial
you guys! this is such an easy and quick diy for halloween. it's great for your front door or anywhere inside your house that you'd like to add a spooky touch.
- ready-made letters from a craft store (mine were already black and ready to go, but if necessary you can always paint them or add glitter)
- black wreath hanger
step one :
cut three strands of ribbon into roughly six or seven inch pieces
step two :
flip all of the letters over and put them in order from top to bottom. tie ribbon around the bottom of each letter and tie into a secure knot.
step three :
hang it on your door and enjoy for the rest of the halloween season! this literally could not be any easier, ha!
since this tutorial was incredibly simple and short, i thought i would give you a little peek inside as well. our house is clearly very tiny from the picture and so i decided to keep the halloween decor at a minimum this year. a small house can easily go from decorated to cluttered in about two seconds.
so here are my very simple halloween touches:
when you don't have a lot of space to work with i recommend just scattering a few randomly sized and colored pumpkins around your house for an instant fall vibe. i just love these little guys! also, fresh, in season flowers are a must too! sunflowers generally aren't my favorite flower, but they are a great autumn bloom and generally fairly inexpensive so those are pluses.
in the living room i just taped some of these chipboard bats that i have from last halloween in a flying pattern above the media console. i just love the simplicity of it. i got them at micheal's craft store last year and i'm sure they have something similar this year if you'd like to grab some. oh, and candles! they are such a must for autumn. i got the absolute best scents this year at tj maxx.
my favorite scent i found was the vanilla cider candle. i loved it so much i had to get two! it's a great subtle scent that just cozies up your home.
i added some halloween themed paper straws and a pumpkin scented candle to our bar tray. i got my straws at target, but they sell them almost anywhere these days.
happy fall to you all!
