Goblins, ghosts, and ghouls — oh my! It's officially October, which means the green light is on for Halloween decorating. If you're looking for an affordable and low-key way to let little trick-or-treaters know you've got candy, a gaggle of ghosts is a safe bet. This outdoor Halloween decor isn't pricey or complicated. Plus, once night falls, these ghosts can light up for extra creepiness.
Halloween is coming up quickly, and I don't know about you, but I'll be ready to start decorating soon. Usually when I get my home ready for Halloween, I tend to avoid the creepier, crawlier stuff and go straight for cute and classic. A few jack-o-lanterns, some fake cobwebs, and a ghost or two.

I have boxes upon boxes of Christmas decor, but do you know what I always wish I had more of? Halloween decorations! Most of the spooky decor associated with this ghoulish of holidays doesn't last for more than one season (I'm talking to you, weird bag of spider webs!). Rather than buying stuff to throw it away on November 1st, I wanted to make something I can decorate with this year and the years after. Continue Reading
I don't know about you, but I've been basically looking forward to Halloween since New Year's Eve. It's such a fun holiday! Candy, ghosts, and ghouls – oh my!
