As a candy addict, Halloween is one of the most celebrated holidays of my year. I love Halloween! I have a million amazing memories of this wonderful holiday, from pillowcases overflowing with candy, running from house to house with all my friends, having the coolest costumes ever... literally (thanks mom!).
And as a mom I want to give my kids the same experiences and enthusiasm towards this holiday! But lets be real here, who has the time to do the work!?
I totally give my mom props, I have no clue how she managed to sew 3 kid's costumes every year, all while decking the house out, making baked goods for our classes, running the brownie troop, working as the room mom and god only knows what else she was involved in! I like to think I am a super mom too, but honestly, running this business and keeping my house somewhat clean is a struggle for me!
So to get the most bang for our buck, or really, the most with the least amount of effort and time! I have compiled my favorite effortless halloween decor options! Lets get spooky!
Kicking it off with the season's best candy! These candy corns are adorable and easy to make!
After living in Florida for 8 years, carving pumpkins is a sure way to have your pumpkin rot in days, possibly even hours depending on temperatures! So I love finding alternative ways to decorate pumpkins so they will look nice and keep throughout the season. I am loving these bedazzled pumpkins! Festive and tasteful!
Obviously I am a big fan of these amazing picture frames! What I love about these is what our friend over at The Unique Nest did with her frames. Taking festive scrapbook paper and simply framing it using our unique magnetic framing system is literally the easiest decor idea I have ever seen! And it looks super amazing too! Can we say #effortless!? Build your own customizable picture frame here and easily change it to fit every holiday!
Since I have been saving wine corks for years so some day I can make an actual cork board, this project is perfect since I have all the supplies! And if I don't have enough, it is an excuse to sit back and enjoy a glass of wine... or two... or three!
And these cats! They are just to cute not to make! A couple pieces of scrap wood and you have the whole posse!
And you have to check out the link for these bats! These are too cute and this is definitely a project you can make with the kids.
And lastly, and most certainly the easiest. Check out these awesome FREE Halloween printables. Whether you are framing it into one of our easy to use magnetic picture frames, or framing in something you have lying around at home, these printable are an extremely easy way to make your decor match the season!
So get to decorating! Use these easy to do Halloween decorating ideas and the time you save, you can redirect to the more difficult task.... the costumes!
