Spooooky Halloween Decorations

Okay, so these actually that spooky because I do have a toddler in the house and all you know.  I love Halloween decorations and that spider below has got to be my all time favorite!  My mom has on with a HUGE spiderweb but since I was too cheap to buy one of those, I just made it look like the spider was coming out of skylight.  {{spooooooky}}

When people walk in the door, they’ll see the Witch’s Cauldron which is awesome and when it get’s closer to Halloween, I’ll fill it with gory eyeballs and slimy worms.  Until then it will just have to stay empty because my kids would eat it all anyways.

The 8 foot Spider decoration and the Witch’s Cauldron can be found at Spirit Halloween. I found a TON of things I wanted from the site like their yard decor.  Wow, you talk about some scary stuff there!!  The half man coming “out” of the ground was really cool.  They have fog machines, inflatables, and even tons of body parts to ensure for a ghoulish Halloween!

I try to buy a few decorations every year to add to the collection.  Some other things we do our change tablecloths and placemats, put up pumpkins, pumpkin table decorations with lights, orange & black candles, and hang other smaller spiders & webs.

Time for some Halloween Safety Tips!

  • –    Create safe costumes. Helping your child pick out or create a Halloween costume can be a fun, bonding activity, but it’s also important to keep in mind safety when selecting the perfect get-up. Make sure your child’s costume is made from fire proof materials and that eye holes in their masks are large enough for good peripheral vision. Always be sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars.
  • –    Equip your children with important information. Even if you plan to trick-or-treat with your child, secure emergency identification (name, address, phone number) discreetly within Halloween attire or on a bracelet.
  • –    Know your surroundings. Use services like Neighborhood Watch or Intelius’s Property & Neighborhood Report to identify and locate sex offenders when charting your child’s trick-or-treating route.
  • –    Don’t go off the beaten track. Be sure to tell your child to stay on neighborhood sidewalks and in well lit areas and avoid cutting through parks, vacant lots, fields and other places that are less populated. If you are another adult are not accompanying him or her, tell them to stop only at familiar houses in your own neighborhood.
  • –    Decorate safely. Nothing beats spooky Halloween decorations to give your trick-or-treaters a harmless scare, but be sure to remove anything that could be an obstacle from lawns, steps and porches. It’s a holiday staple, but candlelit jack-o’-lanterns should be kept away from landings and doorsteps where costumes could brush against the flame. Keep indoor jack-o’-lanterns away from curtains and other furnishings that could be ignited.
  • –    Inspect candy before doling it out. Instruct your children not to bring home any treats to be examined by you before they indulge. Cooking up a Halloween dinner will make them less likely to gobble up the candy they collect before you have a chance to check it for them.

    I love the spider! And I love that Rachel Ray is on the tv. :) I don’t really have any great ideas or tips, I’m kind of a decorating novice.
