This is Halloween, This is Halloween... on a budgetFriday, October 29, 2010
I adore Halloween or really, I adore any holiday that gives me an excuse to decorate. Halloween has always been one of my favorites. For a couple of years I ran a "haunted" train station which, while incredibly fun, was an exhausting task for one person and a small group of mostly cooperative volunteers to organize. No matter my frustrations with the station, decorating a haunted house gave me the ability to fully flex my "halloween muscle" if you will. These days I still dream big when it comes to Halloween, graveyards, fog, mummies.....which is a problem considering my pocketbook isn't exactly big enough to back these grand ideas.
So this year, I kept things simple. A few pumpkins, a package or two of creepy cloth, some spider web and some crepe paper and that's it, a creepy front door and a spooky mantle.
