halloween decor - fast & furious

                                 
                         Since I'm not big on Halloween decorations but still want to appear festive,
                                               here's my fast and furious formula,
                                                spending only about 20 minutes!

                                                 ~ family room bookshelf ~


                              ~   printed letters onto copy paper and put in frames
                              ~   spray painted some sticks from our yard and added to vase
                              ~   stacked orange and black books
                              ~   printed out the word Boo! and put in a mini frame
                              ~   added this fun eye chart saying to our kitchen chalkboard

            To see another fun and clever way to frame letters, go check out this cute blogger,
                                                     Courtney's easy ideas here.

                 

These frames make fun little hostess gifts,
 here I just tied it around the wine bottle.
The possibilities are endless, you can personalize them to suit the occasion, family, etc.
One of my favorite things to do is include a couple of other words or sayings for the next
month or two, just put them behind each other.

I'll tell my friend there is a new message for November, I wrote:

~  thankful for friends ~



               Remember the shelf on my gallery wall ~ it's a nice spot to add seasonal touches,
                                                    these mini-frames fit perfectly.


   
Do you have any fast & furious tips?

Amazing! I didn't like Halloween decorations much either until I saw your blog! Such fun but elegant touches. Your fun chalkboard message is so creative. Your hostess gift with messages for the future is genius..."the gift that keeps on giving!" Thanks for sharing!

There's definitely something to be said about simple elegance. You defined that for us today. Thanks!

Unquestionаbly believe that which you said. Your favorite justifiсation appeared tο bе on the net the еaѕіеst
thing tο be awагe of. I say tο you, I certainly get
annoуeԁ ωhile peoрle think about woгries that they plainlу don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
