Every year the Halloween decorations are pulled out in anticipation of Halloween night and all the trick-or-treaters. There are touches of Halloween throughout the main floor. Sometimes it is very subtle, like the three rectangular vases with wine corks and the letters ‘B O O’. The letters were printed on card stock, cut to size, slipped into the vases and supported by the corks. Sometimes little things that are so inexpensive make a big impact.
The crow sits atop a small Autumnal wreath, which was easily manip-ulated to fit the urn perfectly.
In the kitchen window, are two wooden crows on pumpkins and a Happy Harvest sign, which I leave up through Thanksgiving. Two little Jack-o-lantern votives are on each end. Notice the ‘Golden Tack Wreath’ from an earlier post. It was such a simple craft, but I love it.
Don’t you think little touches make a big difference in decorating for the season? Sometimes a simple composition using just a few decorations is very pleasing to the eye.
