Halloween ideas!

Ok so I can't take credit for these great ideas but I can most certainly use them and put my own twist on it.  So because Halloween is just around the corner and party planning may be in the works, I want to incorporate some shabbiness with a little touch of spook.
Aren't they cute?  The holes are made with drills and I'm sure that the flowers can be picked up at any market.  The full tutorial can be found here at Crafty Nest.

Then there is this idea of hanging little lanterns on a railing and I'm telling you that this on my front porch rail would be the cutest!

The tutorial can also be found here.

Then I found this free download for a "save the date" invite.
You can find that at Living Locurto.  She actually used an image from Graphics Fairy.  

I just can't wait to get started!


  1. Halloween isn't such a big thing where I live even though the shops are bursting with items but I really love those ideas and would love to use them.

  2. ~*Thanks for the inspiration Natalie~*~ LOVE that vintage save the date!! Hugs,Rachel~*~

    I love fall and all of it's characteristics with the cool air, the traditions that can be with pumpkin patch visits, hay rack rides, bon fires, football... (a large part of my husband and son's life- can't beat em, join em) *] So good to have found your blog and to have you visit mine. thank you!

  9. Natalie, I love these ideas! Its nice to see what happens on the other side of the world; as people here dont get into the fall decorating/ halloween decorating as much... But it looks like fun!
