Adorable & Easy Halloween Decorations
Gorgeous Ivory Pumpkin Decor-Monogram Pumpkin Tutorial
Isn’t this an awesome idea for either a real or faux pumpkin? I love it so much, I had to try it myself!
The only thing I changed from the original tutorial was that I decorated an artificial pumpkin. The reason is, it just makes sense to be able to save it for next year, rather than having to throw it out. I bought my faux pumpkin from Michael’s.
This is definitely a great project for the “DIY challenged”!
Now, you know I don’t have much patience. Furthermore, my hand is not very steady.
But, I’m pleased with how this turned out!
This pretty monogram pumpkin can be used indoors, or in a covered outdoor area.
Materials Needed: Pumpkin Cream/Ivory Spray Paint (Flat or Satin) Masking or Painters Tape Transfer/Graphite Paper Acrylic Paint Paintbrus… read more at radiobutlers.blogspot.com

Get Crafty with these Easy Halloween Decorations
Halloween Double Duty
One of my favorite things to do when selecting decorations for Halloween is to incorporate items that can work for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. So, once Halloween is over, I simply remove all the witches, ghosts, and anything else strictly “Halloween”.
Then, the remaining decorations stay in place for the month of November. As a result, decorating for Thanksgiving is super easy.
The first three projects in this post could easily be used to decorate for both Halloween and Thanksgiving.
Let’s Get to Decorating!
I hope these easy Halloween decorations projects have inspired you to get creative! However, you may still want to buy a few things. So, I will add a few of my absolute faves after this post.
But, I’ll bet the decorations for Halloween that you create yourself will be your favorites!
