Halloween on the Brain!

I know, I know what you are all thinking! That its just too early to start decorating for my favorite time of year, but its all I can think about! The stores around here are starting to put out all their decorations and since all my plants are either dying or have been dead for quite some time, I want to change all my summer decor for Witchy decor! Look what Curious Sofa did last year:

Now if anyone knows where I can get mannequin legs, because I so need to do this on my front porch, please let me know!

Look at some other cool things I found:

This is a little tempting to do in the Dining Room, I mean you can just paint afterwards, right? I think this one was in the Pottery Barn Catalog 2 years ago, but oh, it's still a great one!

How fantastic would this setting be for your next Halloween Party?

Well this isn't my bedroom but I do think I have a cobweb growing like that from the window trim down to my table. Well hey, I guess I started my decorating early after all!

I'm thinking I need to do this to the front porch. You can never have too many cobwebs around, well at least this time of year they are considered ok!

This is another fab idea for the front porch. Carving out your initials into the pumpkins or even your address would be a fun idea!

Well who doesn't like Martha Stewart's puff balls? She has them in every color you can imagine. I just love the idea of these hanging above your buffet table at a party!

Look how creepy fun this party would be to go to!

Now this would be a great project for the kiddos! Painting rocks black or orange and writing fun Halloween words on them. How great would this be in a glass jar, or a big bowl on the coffee table!

This is just one of the many displays seen at The Curious Sofa

Well I'm off to a 5th grade band meeting but I'm sure my mind will be on other things, you think?

And if you haven't stopped by to enter my wonderful giveaway, please head on over! Plus I made a change to how many times you can enter this giveaway, up to 5 chances to win!

Sweetness... I AM SO STOKED FOR THIS SEASON. I totally opened up a craft magazine at Walmart and saw those witch legs in the Urn/vase. I so want to do that too. I think try thrift stores or clothing boutique stores maybe they would sell an old one. Anyway, love the pics you showed. Have a wonderful night. Jen

Girl, I am not sure about the legs but the sign/broom combo "the witch is in" is from a company called Midwest of Cannonfalls! You can flip it over and it says "The witch is out" ha! Very Cute! Halloween is my second fav and I have started making little things to put out!

It is NEVER too early to plan for Halloween! Halloween is my holiday! The PB one with the mural on the back, seriously-- it looks like my parents house. I'm SO taking a picture this year when the leaves fall and I'll show you what I mean. :)

I really hope you do find the mannequin legs because I can't wait to see what you would do with yours. This was my favorite image but the all white spooky interpretation is pretty cool too.
