The Halloween Switch-o-Roo

A few weeks ago I posted about out family "launch pad" and mentioned how I hoped to be able to switch it our for different holidays. Well, guess what? I did and it really was very easy! Thank goodness for coll Halloween scrapbook paper!
Here is the new version of my weekly dry erase calendar. Again I just cut the paper to size, added stickers to mark the day of the week, and then just put then on top of the old ones! This way I will not have to worry about storing them- they will always just sit behind each other.
Here is the before and after... super simple!
In the frame that would normally hold our "family Rules" I just added some more scrapbook paper and then pictures from past Halloweens... I am still working on printing some of these. I even hope to have a few from when Adam and I were kids!
Our little shelf has more simple, child friendly decor. Trust me almost everything came for the dollar stores or Targets dollar spot!
The entry way buffet now have a spooky little face lift.
Everything sparkles! And you might notice the tin haunted house in the corner- do not worry it was not a fortune from Pottery Barn... good ole Home Goods for $14. If you have not been to a Home Goods... find the closest one and start driving!!
My cloche never looked so scary!
This little festive cluster sits on our bar. We always have a tin box here to catch all the junk... keys, coupons, sunglasses, and Adam's wallet. I changed it out this orange and black tin basket. A cheap jar tied with a scrappy tag and tulle holds the evil candy corn! And my black candle has a little piece of fabric and a scrapbook sticker. Stay tuned for a post on our new Halloween Advent calendar!! You will love it...


  1. Go Kristy! My house is not very festive at all - yours looks great!

  2. Great job! I love how you switched out your For the Week frames. Super cute! I need to find a candelabra like you have on your buffet! Where did you get it?

  3. Your house is looking pretty spooky. You have been busy. Love all the sparkle. Know the kids are loving it! LaLa


Let's go make something,
