More Halloween!

I am always so inspired by Disneyland's Halloween Time decorations, especially the ones on Main Street, that I took lots of pictures last year and decided that I wanted to try and replicate some of them in my own home. I had several parties planned for different things here at my house, so I figured that this was the best year to give it a try!

Not only did I decorate for Halloween, but I made name plates, a mini book and some treat giveaways that I learned to make from a friend who has a CTMH business. (Thanks Janice!)

First, here is the mini book I made using Tim Holtz Distress inks and crackle paints, QuicKutz dies and Teresa Collins bracket book covers and Halloween die cut pages. It was such fun to make and we even used the Bind-it-All to put it together.

I made place cards for everyone with the QuicKutz Haunted House die and Haunted alpha, abd my friend Noli made the treat bags.

I learned to make these adorable treats from my CTMH friend and consultant, Janice. Rather than stamping, I added the vintage postcard to the front of the treat (I used several different styles of postcards) and then in various spots, for a little shine, I added some Rock Candy Distress Stickles. It looks like that old glass glitter.

When you open the folder, the treat pops out! So cute and fun!

Now for the decorations. I wanted to keep that vintage Halloween feel, so i continued with the antique postcard theme, just like Disneyland.
Here is this year's front door wreath....but I already have plans to change it for next year.

This is the wall over the entrance table as you come in the door.

Coffee table in the living room.

And I didn't make this, but I found this adorable pumpkin at Vons! Couldn't pass it up, so I included it here b/c it is just so darn cute!

Well, that was it for my Halloween decor for this year -- but you know me, I'll be adding to it next year!
