I didn't use to decorate very much for Halloween, but it has become my 5 year old son's favorite holiday and he has been begging me all year to make Halloween decorations. We had a lot of fun shopping and decorating together, making Halloween one of my new favorite holidays.
The rat and black candlesticks on the mantel are from the dollar store and I made the banner with fabric from Joann's Fabric. My son has been learning patterns in Kindergarten, so I had him lay out the pattern for the banner and used it as a teaching tool.
These are the candlesticks I bought from the dollar store; I just spray painted them black.felt bat garland on Pinterest and had my daughter make it. I have been teaching her how to sew, so this was a great project for her.
I sewed easy envelope pillow cases and slipped them over my existing pillows.
I used the rest of my fabric to make a table runner and banner for the dining room.
I found these frames at the thrift store and the candlestick holder and plate at the dollar store.
