This past weekend we held a Halloween party at our home and I wanted to share some of the pictures with you. To me, the best decoration that made the most impact, was the window silhouettes. Using white chalk, my sister drew them on black poster board. After cutting them out, they were taped to the windows. On Pinterest, there are links to different sites that did this same thing. One said to put yellow tissue behind the cut-outs. Since I couldn’t find enough yellow or even orange tissue paper at the local stores, I purchased one plastic tablecloth. I thought I would try it out before I purchased enough for all the windows. Come to find out, you don’t really need anything backing them if your curtains are light enough and white tablecloths works just as well as yellow. The only rooms in our house with yellow tablecloths in the upper left room. The curtains in this room are dark brown and didn’t allow enough light to go thought. The bottom right room is white tablecloths and the remaining windows have nothing behind them except the closed curtains. The curtains in these rooms are lined but they are light colored and allowed enough light to shine though. I think they look fantastic and it costs less than $10!
I purchased complete costumes at Dirt Cheap for $5 and my husband built stands using 1X2’s and chicken wire.
This was another great idea! It looked like the witchs’ hats were floating in the air! They were hung from the ceiling using tacks and clear fishing line.
Glittery orange jack o lanterns were placed on top of the kitchen cabinets
With the exception of just a few people, everyone dressed in costume. From Duck Dynasty to
some groovy characters!
Even my father in law got in on the fun in his Darth Vadar costume!
And the night wouldn’t be complete without at least one scary zombie!
