Tolar's absolute favorite holiday is Halloween, hands down. He LOVES to be scared and he loves to dress up in silly costumes, so it's perfect. I, however, hate to be scared and have never been a fan of going to haunted houses (his favorite!). Poor thing, got me to go to haunted houses with him one year (right after we got engaged) and I have never wanted to go again. I was so scared, just thinking about our visit to the Haunted Forest makes me nervous. And I am sad to say, that because I immediately associate haunted houses with Halloween, I haven't really gotten into decorating. Until this year!!!!
I started to think how many sacrifices Tolar makes for
A few tips/thoughts:
-Look around your house to see what you already have. I was able to use ribbons, a few pumpkins and jars that I already owned to add to my decor.
-Search online for easy DIY decor (you WILL want to check out this Halloween Luminary blog post)
-For the easiest Halloween decor tip ever, go to the Dollar Tree and buy their tiny Christmas houses (which are already out) and spray paint them black for an eerie look.
-Levels are your best friend when decorating (for anything!). Having items with different heights helps add a little something extra to your final look.
-My all time favorite way to decorate is to fill a glass jar with ornaments, I do this at Christmas all the time.
