We have the outside of our house pretty much complete. I may be making a new item or two before Halloween to add to it but the basis is done. First our decorations are pretty cheap. We only have 1 or 2 decently priced items. Most of our decorations either:
- Are made by us.
- Were purchased at deep discount immediately after Halloween.
- Were bought at the Dollar store.
My favorite thing is un wrapping stuff bought the year before. It’s like presents at the winter holidays. This year we had the plastic fencing I picked up at Walgreens for 50% last November. All of the lit pumpkins I got years ago at Target in the days following. I think I even got our wreath then too. We added a fair amount of new stuff this year, the inflatables, the pumkins around the door, Dracula and Frankenstein. They were all gotten at Dollar Tree though so I don’t feel too bad about that. Every year we slowly add a little bit more. This is the first year I think we really have a good amount of spread. Last year we only had the tombstones and some of the lighted stuff all focused around the door way.
I’m just going to share a bunch of pictures though to show off some of our stuff and hopefully it’ll give everyone else some ideas. Hopefully I’ll have an update of a few new items that made in out in the weeks to come.
If you’ve posted pictures of your house please share a link to where they are also. And what are some of your great decorating ideas?
