Easy Halloween Decorating!


I did some easy, peasy Halloween decorating this morning.  I had some picture frames and I strung wire across in several places. Then, I printed off some halloween pictures...Go to the Graphic Fairy, she has wonderful pictures!  I gathered up some clothes pins and paper clips. I had 2 bundles of dried roses that I had got at a yard sale .25 ea, so I got them. Then I got busy because, I only gave myself an hour to complete this project! 



I decided that this guy could be part of my halloween family, so I printed him off!

I've always loved  Marie, I could be related to her.....maybe?

This could be one of my kids baby pictures, lol!

Some more of my relatives!!

A little tea party I had for some of my best friends! Some glittered clothes pins would be cute to hang your "family photo's" with.

My movie star relative!  Notice how easy it is just to hang things on the wire!

Witch chandy, all hung with paper clips or clothes pins....even the flowers were clipped on to the wire!


It looked too bare below the family pictures, so I grabbed some books and my vintage typewriter, mouse , and a pumpkin.

If I would have had more time, I would have made "jackets" for my books! But , remember, I wanted this done in about an hour!

I was working on my dress form yesterday.  Stay tuned, I think she is going to be some kind of pumpkin lady! I 'll show you when I'm done! 

I had this basket that was storing doily's, so I got it and put a pumpkin in it , and a flower swag on the pumpkin.

This is what the wall looked like when I started.

And, (DRUM ROLL)  here is the after. I can leave the picture frames up for the holidays and change out the photo's for Thanksgiving, Christmas,even into next year!
 I have been careful not to get the buffet in any of the pictures. But you can see a pumpkin on the edge.  I am working on the buffet to get it ready for the holidays and will do a post on it. 

Well, maybe one more little glimpse!!!  I am joining these partys

  8. I can't decide what I like best. I have such a weakness for empty frames and I'm dying over that typewriter! Excellent job! I'm a new follower :)
