Let me start with a confession. Before moving into a “real neighborhood,” I skipped decorating for Halloween.
We lived way off the beaten path – with few neighbors & NO trick or treaters. But now? Well, now that we live in a ‘hood with several households full of kids, and drop-in guests, it’s time to step up my decor game. And you know what that means.
Lot’s of research! I hid from my family and studied Pinterest for days. “For Work”:)) It was the most fabulous 48 hours I’ve ever spent in a dark closet with a slight mothball odor. I covered all the bases & here are the best DIY Halloween decorations that look fabulous but won’t break the bank!
If you’re looking for stunning – you’ve found it:) Quick? Not so much – it took Don Morin several days to put together these fabulous DIY Halloween decorations with carved pumpkins, PVC pipe & lights. Read all about it here.
