Halloween Decorations

Ok this is a long post, but I just love Halloween.  It's mostly pictures so enjoy. 
Let's start with my mantel.










This chandelier hangs in the stair well.  For Family Home Evening Ashlee gave everyone three black pipe cleaners and said make your own spider.  So we all did and then we hung them from the chandelier with our big metal one.  I think they all turned out neat.  Also check out Les' flicker light bulbs.  You can't tell in the photo but they flicker like a flame.  Very haunted mansion like at night.  We got ours at Lowe's last year.  (Caution they are a little pricey.)












This is our plant shelf.

I'm still looking for an owl to put in the bird cage.


This close up shows Dracula's glowing red eyes.  They just fade off and on continually.





We love our big crow!!!




This spooky wire tree I just picked up at DI for $2.  It looks great on the kitchen counter.



So now you see what Halloween freaks we are.  Each year we add to our collection cause each year we think we don't have very much!!!!! 
 I must say this year I got the biggest compliment from my 16 year old son.  He said we had the best Halloween decorations.  They were cool vintage like not cheesy store bought.  That's pretty cool coming from a teenager!!!
