Welcome to the 244th Metamorphosis Monday!
Holiday Before and After:
Since tomorrow is the 1st day of October, I thought it would be fun to share some older posts filled with lots of Halloween decorating inspiration and ideas.
This photo and the next one are from Pottery Barn a few years back. I love this porch!
Doesn’t this make you want to paint your door orange just for the month of October? Both of these porches along with some easy decorating ideas can be found here: Halloween Porches (via Pottery Barn)
I love doing this to my front staircase each year. 🙂 It’s easy and makes me smile each time I climb the stairs.
Additional photos can be found here: Decorate a Staircase for Halloween with Mice
Decorate a Porch for Halloween with Pumpkin Topiaries: I’m thinking about doing this again this year but maybe with different color pumpkins. Pumpkin topiaries are great for fall because you can create them now and enjoy them all the way through Thanksgiving up until it’s time to decorate for Christmas.
A few years back I posted templates and directions for carving pumpkins in fun designs.
A fun Halloween craft: Make a Candlelit Lantern for Halloween Do you see the bat silhouette?
In this Halloween tablescape, I decorated the chair backs. You’ll find this spooky table here: Decorate Chair Backs for Halloween
This was a fun table to create because it has a spider web tablecloth. Tablescape can be found here: Halloween Table Setting with Spider Web Tablecloth
The recipe for the cupcakes is in that table setting post, too.
Hope you enjoyed this look back at a few of the Halloween ideas posted at BNOTP. You’ll find many more under The Holiday Home/Halloween category at the top of the blog.
Looking forward to the Before and Afters linked for this Met Monday!
